Week 1 of Me Made May has actually been tricky. I was travelling all over Aus meeting people. I am really enjoying wearing my made stuff though. Gives a little more spring to my step.
Monday: 5am up for Sydney to Perth. Overnight in Perth.
Tuesday: 3am up in Perth to Melbourne for lunch. Then 8pm flight out of Melbourne to Sydney.
Wednesday: 6am start to get into Sydney CBD for meetings all day. Back to office. Then a show in the CBD.
Thursday: 5am start for a day trip to Queensland.
Friday: Into the office for a few hours, then into Sydney CBD for more meetings, then back to the office.
It's lucky that I have started to make clothes from comfy and non-wrinkle knit fabric. That allowed me to take the me made stuff around the country.
Tuesday: Handknit top with German wool bought in NZ and knit from a 1952 pattern. It was 3.30am when I took these photos. I was barely alive at that hour... Paired with the same Retrospec'd pants and a gorgeous vintage jet necklace I got for Christmas.
Wednesday: Simple Enmore Cowl - pattern from Morris & Sons in York Street. It's so cosy. I love it.
Thursday: A long sleeve Gable Top again, this time for travelling to QLD for a day trip.
Friday: A pretty relaxed day in my New Look 6000. This pattern is becoming a fantastic go-to for me. I have made three versions of it. I have a plan for one with the collar and cuffs in white and the body in navy. Oh so sailor chic.
Saturday: Wore my black ascot scarf knit. Fantastic for using up "scraps" of yarn. More like that spare skien after a project. I also cut out my Simplicity 4606. I'm using view 3 (the orange one on the top left).
Sunday: Rounded out the week with my blue scarf I made years ago. It's got a vintage doily style placemat (!!) joined in to create a little interest.
Hopefully, the rest of Me Made May will be a little easier to do as I'll just be at work and won't need to plan for travelling.
Hope you're enjoying Me Made May! :)
