Well, I’ve managed it, with a little bit of stretching – I’m into week 3 of Me Made March and there haven’t been any repeats. Sort of. On Saturday, my me made item is my winter coat. This is kind of cheating because 1) I actually have worn this every day in March, as it’s still pretty cold in London and 2) I didn’t wear it all day long. I’m sure you’ll forgive me though.
So this week, I wore:
Monday – knit jumper thing, which I didn’t make (although I could have), but rather refashioned by removing a big cowl neck and binding off the neck.
Tuesday – blue skirt from the Vogue 8543 suit
Wednesday – my simple brown cardigan, made from the Minimalist pattern
Thursday – an old standard, my grey trousers, made ages ago and worn often, despite having terrible welt pockets in the back. Made from the same pattern as last Thursday’s trousers.
Friday – my brand new grey trousers – wider legs, with cuffs, and lined. Made from a modified pattern that I also used to make some shorts. You can’t see it, but the pockets are lined with cats. Not real cats. That would be odd. Fabric with cats on it.
Saturday – as mentioned, a bit of a cheat, counting my coat. This is from a Project Runway pattern (Simplicity 2508) and I’ve worn it through Autumn and Winter both this year and last. And that’s despite having made the sleeves just a midge too short. I just bought longer gloves to compensate…
Sunday – borrowed the cardigan I made for Ken for today. It’s quite cosy and nice, and he wasn’t wearing it…
