Me-Made-May ’13 – Week 1

My first MMM week has past. It was a short week, only 5 days but it has been fun already!

MMM13 week 1

 

May the 1st:

My first day started on the 30th of April. I had to go to a prom hosted by my old sorority and decided to make my own red lace dress. Β I got lots of compliments.

The pattern is based on the Maria Denmark Day To Night top. I saw the dress on SewBusyLizzy’s blog and fell in love with it. So when I was trying to decide what I was going to wear, it wasn’t too difficult. It’s made from a red stretch lace underlined with matching cotton jersey. Except for the back, which is just the lace. For the hem I cut around the lace flowers and did the same for the back neckline.

The rest of the day (it was a day off) I spend lounging in my pajamas.

May the 2nd:

I pledged to wear 2 seperates or one dress a day, but it was Sports day at school and I had forgotten about it, so the only thing I got to wear was my first Day to Night top. Made out of a dress I tried to make once, I re-used it to make the top, I had already attached the lace to the dress so I just re-used it.

But if it helps, the morning started off really cold so I wore a MM – scarf. Although it was a Mom-Made scarf and not a Me-Made scarf πŸ™‚

May the 3rd:

This dress is made of a pattern called ‘Farah Fawcett’ and it’s the first cotton dress I ever made.

May the 4th:

This is my favourite outfit out of this week. My very first Banksia top and my red pencil skirt. I felt very 50’s housewife in it, especially paired with pumps and a beehive. My cat seemed to like it as well.

May the 5th:

My first Day to Night dress. This was actually the muslin I made for the lace dress but it’s perfect and very very comfortable!

 

I’ve made loads of new stuff this weekend so next week will be fun!

  1. So many cute things! I love the red lace dress, especially how you cut around the lace for the hem! May 4th is probably my favorite too – everything about the outfit is great from the hair down to the shoes. =)
