Me Made May 2013 - Week 1

Woohoo! It started!

Cardigan: Zara (Old)
Jeans: no brand
Shoes: Converse

I never blogged about this Airelle I made last Autumn, but I've been wearing it quite a bit.
The idea is the same as this other blouse: I refashioned a man button-up using the Airelle pattern, this one is just sleeveless.
By the way, the blue refashioned Airelle didn't survive the winter (ie I threw it away), because the material was too stiff and it was just uncomfortable to wear. This yellow one is a lot softer, so it works much better. Lightweight fabrics work much better with this pattern.

T-shirt: Banksia top by Megan Nielsen (originally blogged here)
Jeans: no brand
Bag: Fiorucci for OVS
Shoes: Pimkie

I really need to make more knit Banksia tops. This one was an experiment and although the fabric is not the best quality and print-wise, I really like it. Extremely comfortable for running around all day, with the added cuteness of a Peter Pan collar.

Shirt: Fiorucci for OVS
Skirt: Kelly skirt by Megan Nielsen (orginally blogged here)
Bag: vintage
Shoes: no brand

I love this outfit, even more so after my brother made the snide comment that I looked like Minnie Mouse. Like that could EVER be an offence to me (or to other awesome people)!
Anyway, this skirt seriously goes with everything, and looks great with everything. Thank you forever, Megan, for this pattern.

Now, there's no me-made look for today (Sunday). I came back from work late and completely exhausted, and it was raining. I just changed in my pj's and gave up, so to compensate today's fail (my pledge is four times a week) I'll try to go for five me-made days next week!

How did your first me-made week go?


  1. I love all of your Megan Neilsen makes! The Kelly skirt is my fave...ok that's it, I need to get around to making some of her patterns now!

  2. I love all your outfits here but am with Lucinda - the Megan Nielson makes are definite favourites! I've just made my first Banksia and can't wait to try a knit one. This is my first Me-Made-May and I'm absolutely loving it - so inspiring!

    You look so adorable!!! Your handmade clothes are definitely "you". I have the Banksia top pattern, but haven't found the time to make it yet. Your knit version makes me want to start on it soon!! This is my third year following along on others Me-Made-May, and I'm not quite ready to participate. :( My goal is to do it next year - no excuses - I think by then I'll definitely be ready!!!
