Well these weeks are flying by, we’re half way through May already and two weeks into Me-Made-May and so far my wardrobe is holding up. I’ve managed to find at least one item to wear each day, if not the whole outfit!
The weather here in Yorkshire is still a bit on the changeable side, we’ve had some lovely warm days, but also some distinctly chilly days, so layering up is still the order of the day, the layers are just getting thinner!
Here’s a selection of the outfits I wore;
This is a top I made last year, it was one of those prints that I wasn’t sure if I loved it or hated it, luckily I love it now! It goes nicely with my straight navy cotton skirt. The garden is colouring up nicely too, it’s always a nice moment when the weather improves enough for us to get the patio set out.
Thursday night was WI night, I’m president of my Women’s Institute at the moment, so I do feel I have to make a slight effort with my appearance. As it was a lovely sunny evening I wore my chiffon Gabriola skirt, nice and swishy! It was a great evening as one of our older members has just got engaged for the first time so we opened a bottle of Prosecco or two!
Another sunny day, I wore a top I made last year from a really soft batik, it buttons down the front matching the Fumeterre skirt I made in the spring.
Today I was working, it’s chilly at 7am at the railway station! The hairstyle is what we call pacemaker hair at work, which means I’ve been wearing a theatre cap all day so it’s totally flattened!
This is my favourite Fumeterre skirt, I still haven’t worked out what kind of fabric it is but it drapes beautifully. This is an action shot in my new sewing room before I get cracking with a quilt that’s got to be finished for Saturday as it’s a present for my god-daughter who will be 18.
So that’s my week in clothes, how have you got on with Me Made May?
Lovely outfits last week, Margaret! Am so impressed you’re president for your local WI. How do you get everything done? You’re one very busy lady!
