ME MADE MAY 2013: 6th - 12th MAY

Here's what I've been wearing, Week Two of Me Made May 13.  I find the second week is when I start to worry that I don't have anything to wear and start to feel the need to panic sew. 

As a reminder my pledge was:

'I, Kirsty of Top Notch, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '13. I endeavour to wear at least one handmade garment each day for the duration of May 2013, with no repeat outfits. I will also make two new wearable items and will not do any panic sewing!'

I'm still doing well.  No repeats and now I've finished one wearable item.  Hooray for my cape.  But I did wear a lot of navy this week ....

See for yourself.  (Click through the photo for details on flickr)

  1. That long brocade skirt is just so elegant!

  2. Thanks Gail. Would you believe it's actually denim. It is the best fabric because it looks so great on the outside, but handles like denim!

  3. Tuesday and Thursday are my favs. You look totally hot in navy so go with it I say ;)

  4. Thanks Amy. I reckon Tuesday is my favourite outfit of the week too. Oh, did you see you won the stripey fabric in my 'giveaway'.. do you still want it? If so email me your address.

  5. Love that fabric! Where did you get it?

  6. Fantastic selection. Navy really suits you! One of the things on my must-make list is a navy skirt.

  7. Thanks Michelle, The denim from Tuesday's skirt is down at A2F. I think there is still some of this one there and there is also a purplier (?) one. It is really really nice to work with - but you have to wash it first as the indigo likes to go all over your skin.

  8. Wearing lots of navy is not a "but" it suits you so well! You've looked so chic every day, like always. I smiled at your pledge not tp panic sew!! :D

  9. I love your outfits! you have a great me-made wardrobe! I wear a lot of navy too - nothing wrong with navy!

  10. Thanks so much Carolyn. The no panic sewing is a bit of an effort!!

  11. Sometimes I wonder whether there is too much Liberty in there.. but let's face it, can there ever be too much Liberty! :)
