Me-Made-June... Days 15, 16, 17 and 18


Day 15

What's Me-Made in today's outfit?
Loire Valley Skirt

Where was it worn?
To work, followed by curry in Soho with pals.

How often is it usually worn and why?
See my ramblings on Day 1.

Will it be worn more often in future?
Definitely. This is a particular MMJ rediscovery success.


Day 16

What's Me-Made in today's outfit?

Where was it worn?
To the office, followed by dinner at my mum's. The sky was dark and the weather dramatic that day (which I love) so I wore this to add a bit of colour to the world (aren't I thoughtful?).

How often is it usually worn and why?
A lot!

Will it be worn more often in future?
Maybe!


Day 17

What's Me-Made in today's outfit?

Where was it worn?
To the office, followed by a quiet evening in catching up with emails, phone calls, The Kennedys and embroidery.

How often is it usually worn and why?
They're all worn pretty often, as I'm sure you've realised by this stage in MMJ!

Will it be worn more often in future?
This question is becoming redundant with certain garments!


Day 18

What's Me-Made in today's outfit?

Where was it worn?
Sitting at my sewing table (yay!). Oh, and lying on the floor in (yogatic?) positions.

How often is it usually worn and why?
A lot. I love this skirt.

Will it be worn more often in future?
Not possible!

Right, I'm off to put some more work into my green floral Ceylon. Wondering what I should call the finished dress. Wedding in a Field Dress? Green Tea Dress? Grass Stain Stunner?! Help! Any ideas?

  1. The Loire Valley skirt is just so beautiful. I could see it with a simple white tank and flat sandals as well.

  3. I can see why you're strating to enjoy the Loire valley skirt more, it's such a lovely shape and with pretty fabric too. The more I see your 70s summer dress the more I want to have a go at sewing from a similiar pattern as well. I've been really enjoying your MMJ posts, thank you!

  7. I adore the Loire Valley Skirt - and the fact that you found a wall in the same color to photograph against! The whole outfit is smart and flattering. Bravo!

  8. You have such fabulous style, Tilly! I think your Ceylon dress should be called the Jasmine Tea Dress - pretty and delicate, like your dress!

  14. The Loire Valley Skirt is beautiful! It falls so nicely and I love all the pleats and the colour of the fabric.

    (I also made something from that same fabric... a shower curtain! That's about all I can sew. Sigh.)

  16. I think Blogger just ate my comment, so apologies if the earlier one somehow shows up later and this is a repeat! :p

    I've been really awful about commenting lately, but wanted to say that I have been enjoying your MMJ posts! Especially since it's giving me ideas for remixing some of my handmades. I think about 50% of my closet is handmade right now, but I sometimes get even more stuck about rethinking ways to wear those items than I do store bought/thrifted! I especially love your first outfit; that skirt is beautiful!

  18. I love your Loire valley skirt! Silly question... did you paint the wall to match your skirt or made the skirt to match the wall?

  20. We were in a pub once in London, seeing a comedian, who made fun of the waistcoat that a friend was wearing (is that all English comedians have to talk about--clothes?)! We had been discussing it because we called it a vest, of course. His girlfriend/wife (a friend from our travels in South America) had made it for him to wear in their wedding. It was her first (and only) sewing project. It looked pretty good, but it had taken her months & MANY do-overs & lots of teary coaching conversations w/ her mother. After the "silly waistcoat" statement, we all got tickled & could NOT stop laughing. We carried on for another 10 minutes or so, and finally the comedian came back to us & asked what was so funny. When we said, "She made the waistcoat" he was quite puzzled, but we started giggling again.

  22. I'm in love with your Loire Valley skirt and the Dazzlingly Red Beignet. I'm going to have to try that Colette pattern. This is my first visit to your blog (saw you on Oonaballoona's this morning). Love it!
