Here are the last few days of May, and I've been happily wearing me-made stuffs. I'm kinda bummed this month is nearly over, but I'm so glad I brought out my hand-made goodies. The weather has been so crazy, I was actually able to wear some of my winter hand-knits!
May 26th, I wore my Mod-Podge jacket. Little did I know I spent most of the day with the snaps misaligned. Oh well.
May 27th, all this hand-made goodness inspired me to finish a pair of jeans! I had the fabric ready, but was unsure it would be enough to make a full-length pair. They're tailored and about ankle length. I think they look rather fetching at ankle length. I've worn them twice now, and they're quickly becoming a fave.
May 28th, the second time I wore the jeans, I paired it with one of my favorite cardigans knit in Malabrigo Lace which is super soft and fuzzy. I had no idea I'd be wearing hand-knits and it's nearly June. The weather's been crazy.
May 29th, and I think this may be my final Me-Made-May post. I have a wedding to attend this weekend in Italy, and I don't know how likely it will be that I can photograph my wardrobe. So, I did it! I wore hand-made items 4 days of each week. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be, but I did get lazy last week. The cold weather actually helped me pull stuff from my hand-knit collection that I might not have worn. So, today I pulled out my alpaca shell. One of my warmest hand-knits and one of the earliest garments I knit. I love it and it used exactly one giant skein of Alpaca with a Twist yarn.
If I dooo manage to finish the dress in the background I'll post a pic. ;)
ETA: final me-made photo. 'twas too cold to wear the dress-in-progress unfortunately. But, I did manage to wear my nicely brightly colored loop! Who would have thought the end of May would be so cold in Italy!
