Me Made May 2014 Midway point!

Well we are halfway through Me Made May and so far so good.  I pledged to wear at least one me made item a day, along with me made knickers and me knitted cardigans at least four days a week.  I also decided not to repeat any outfits throughout the month, things are starting to get a little bit creative! I’ve been posting daily picks on Flickr and Pintrest but I thought I’d do a bit of a round up here too.

And so:


Day one: Colette Hawthorn


Day two: Grey Deer and Doe Plantain with Green Miette Cardigan


Day three: Green embroidered Grainline Scout


Day four: Silk Megan Nielsen Darling Ranges dress

Day five: Grey Deer and Doe Plantain and Purple Miette Cardigan


Day six: Denim Megan Nielsen Kelly Skirt with Green Miette Cardigan


Day seven: Grainline Plaid Archer shirt


Day eight: Colette Zinnia Skirt and Sorbetto top


Day nine: Grainline Blue Poppy Hemlock Tee (Blue Friday theme day!)


Day ten: By Hand London Anna Dress


Day eleven: Colette Rooibos dress and Ando Satturlund Marion Cardigan


Day twelve: Black Deer and Doe Plantain and By Hand London Victoria Blazer


Day thirteen: Buda elephant top with green Miette cardigan (again)


Day fourteen: Black Deer and Doe Plantain and purple Miette cardigan


and finally  day fifteen: Tilly’s Love At First Stitch Clemence skirt

Phew! Me Made May has made me think a lot more carefully about what I wear, I had got into the habit of wearing jeans, plantains and Miettes all the time! It’s been nice to wear more skirts, I could really do with sewing a few more.  My most me outfits so far have been my Darling Ranges and Anna Dresses, I just feel a lot more comfortable in dresses and I don’t have to thing about co-ordinating anything! I’ve also realised how much I love my Miettes so I definitely need to knit at least one more!  I’ve just got to see if I can make it through the next two weeks without repeating anything!  Hopefully the weather might warm up a bit so I can bring out more of my summer stuff!  Are you taking part? Have you managed to stick to your pledge?

  1. Love your cardi’s, I started a Miette and couldnt find the patience to see it through, maybe I’ll try again soon, your purple one is gorgeous!

    • Hi, you could always use the yarn to knit Andi’s new Myrna pattern, there’s a knitalong starting on June 1st as part of Lladybird and Andi’s outfitalong! The cardigan is really cute!
