Me Made May - Week 5

Oops, I'm so very late!
Are you fed up with MMM yet? I sure was tired of taking photos of myself regularly (even just three times a week) but I loved both seeing what all the other gals were wearing and to show off some old creations. I had a lot of fun trying to style old pieces in different ways, and I'm sorry that many beloved garments didn't make it to the blog.
My only regret is that I didn't have any knitted garment to add to the mix, but I hope I can make up for it in the next round.

Monday, May 28th
I don't have a lot to say about this blouse, I just adore it. The lovely apple print is the same as this dress, just in a different color.

Wednesday, May 30th
For some reason, combining a gingham dress paired with a zebra print cardigan and floral wedges seem to work. Although I really should try to style it so that I don't look like a five-year-old.

Thursday, May 31st
It's finally warm enough to wear my gathered sundress, such a perfect garment for everyday. My only regret is that I had to adjust the fit while constructing it, and it shows. If I'll sew another one from this pattern I'll definitely work on a muslin for the bodice.

And I'm done!
I want to thank Zoe once again for hosting this very fun challenge and all the participants for the constant eye candy. Marie, Oona and Sallie : I'd really love to raid your wardrobes.

  1. Oh wow! I love the first blouse, but what is the pattern you used for it? The link takes me to some burda style page with a dress that looks nothing like the blouse you are wearing!

    1. Oops, sorry, I fixed the link! Anyway, it's a pattern from La Mia Boutique 10/2011 :)

  2. Nice, I've traced that top pattern but it's too cold at the moment for blouses XD
