Me-Made-June... Days 23, 24, 25 and 26

My month of wearing handmade clothes every day is nearly over. It's been fun, although I must say I'm looking forward to not having to take photos of myself every day...


Day 23

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

Where was it worn?
To the office, followed by an evening out with my school friends.

How often is it usually worn and why?
Not as often as it should be. The unofficial dress code at my work is jeans and a shirt, but my thinking is, "What's the point of working in an office if you can't play offices and wear a dress to work?!"


Day 24

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

Where was it worn?
To work (is this getting boring yet?!).

How often is it usually worn and why?
Put it this way - the only reason I don't wear it every single day is that I don't want to wear out the denim too soon.



Day 25

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

Where was it worn?
To Brighton for the sewing blogger meet up, then dinner with a pal.

How often is it usually worn and why?
A lot! This is the 4th time I've worn it for Me-Made-June, and I doubt it'll be the last. It's so easy to wear and so so comfortable.


Day 26

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

Where was it worn?
Around the house and out and about in Brixton. Summer has finally arrived in London!

How often is it usually worn and why?
See Day 5.

I've finished my Ceylon dress, but now I'm off on a course so we'll have to wait for the wedding this weekend for outfit shots...

  1. I swear people at work will be looking at.me and muttering " that's little miss vain". It's been fun though.

  2. I'm in love with that granny chic skirt! I really need to train my eye better for charity shopping because I would never have picked it up!

  5. All lovely outfits Tilly. I'm starting to run out of steam for MMJ! Like you, I'm finding the daily photographs a bit tiresome! x

  6. Looking great as always, I'd love to see some shoes in the photos as I'm sometimes stumped as to what to wear with my beignet skirt.

  8. I may have said this before, but I love that denim skirt! If I saw that in a shop I would totally buy it. And then proceed to wear it every day. :)

    Keep up the good work!

  10. Well I'm certainly not tired of your Me-Mades! I really like your first dress, Tilly. I just realised too that I have that pattern and I didn't realise it would look so good in a print. :-)

  11. Thanks for your lovely comments, y'all.

    Kathryn - I'll try to include my shoes next time, but I have to warn you, it won't be that interesting! I'm not a massive shoe person - I go for comfort over style :)

  12. Hi Tilly. I've really loved following your Me-Made-June posts - you have created such a fun mix of clothes and I really love the way you style them all.

    Excited to see what project is next!

  13. I have to agree, Tilly. I am already sick of taking pictures of myself every day (or having MD do it), and I've only been doing it part of the month!

  14. I've enjoyed your month of hand-made wares, so thank you for taking the time every day to capture your outfit. And, everytime I see you in a Beignet skirt, I want to make one. I'm currently holding out on buying a pattern since I already have too many projects on my to-do list. Eventually I'll break down.
