I am quite surprised as to how well Me-Made-May is going for me so far. Only one garment was worn twice (out of pure laziness). Not too shabby. I’m sure garments will make a re-appearance soon enough. My me-made wardrobe isn’t that big…yet!
On Day 9, I wore my Colette Jasmine blouse. I still need to take it in on the sides but it’s still wearable.
I had a little visitor on Day 10 so I took the opportunity to pose with him for my daily photo. I’m wearing my Sew Liberated Schoolhouse Tunic top, looking quite proud that I haven’t made Noah cry.
Feeling springy on Day 11, I wore my Madeleine skirt, enjoyed the sun and met up with Rachel for some delicious cocktails.
On Day 12 I finally got to walk around Little Venice . It’s been on my London bucket list for quite some time. Sadly I didn’t remember to take a photo by the boats! But I managed to remember while we were by a cool looking blue tunnel.
After a 7 mile run/walk, on Day 13, pajamas and coffee were in order. G and I slobbed about the flat for the rest of the day. We had fallen off our training right before Crete so this run took the life out of us for the rest of the day…
…and the next one. I was well sore and the rainy weather didn’t help me feel better. So on Day 14 I stayed in my jammies and worked on a Colette Hazel dress until G got home. Then it was pizza time! We make homemade pizza far too much.
And now back to wearing proper clothes. On Day 15 I met a friend for afternoon tea at the Lancaster Hotel. They serve a special Peter Pan menu. What was Peter Pan about the food I can’t say but it was hella delicious. They even gave us bread to go feed the ducks by the Peter Pan statue in Kensington park. You can’t tell from the photo below but it was super cold and wet all afternoon so we skipped out on feeding the ducks. I was hesitant about wearing my corduroy Colette Meringue skirt because I thought I would get too warm. But nope. It was perfect for the day’s weather.
And today I am wearing the first top I ever made. Don’t even think about looking at the stitches! I’m wearing it with a headband I made using the remnants from my Madeleine skirt.
Wow, I am quite the independent sewing company fangirl.
Hoping everyone participating in MMM’12 is having a good one so far! I am off to finish my Hazel dress. I have facings to fight with!
