#MeMadeMay Week 3


Monday: work. I wore my NewLook K6217 skirt. I really like the simple style of this skirt. If I needed any more skirts then I’d definitely make another one… Might have to make another one anyway πŸ˜‰

Tuesday: work again. I braved another linen skirt: my Delphine one (Tilly and the Buttons). It was just about warm enough for bare legs.


Wednesday: day off. I marked in the morning and then met up with friends for lunch. I wore my other favourite top. It doesn’t go particularly well with these trousers, a bit ‘messy’ around the middle, but near enough.

Thursday: work. No surprises that my first repeat is my navy, linen Ginger (Colette). I really do love this skirt πŸ™‚


A little overdressed for a Friday night curry with friends in my Galloping Horses dress, caused by lack of appropriate MeMade tops to go with jeans again. This is a really obvious gap to fill in with future makes, maybe even chambray jumpsuits? πŸ˜‰

Saturday was filled with marking and messing about in the garden with the kids. Again, I would have been willing to put bets on this Coco top being my second repeat item. If you’re really bored you could play spot the difference between this and Wednesday’s outfit πŸ˜‰ There aren’t a lot of them it turns out…

Being on the short side does make me pretty conscious of my posture. This coupled with my love of yoga appears however to have resulted in my shoulders being a little too far back in these last two shots. Before you shout ‘put them away’ I apologise….

No new insights gleaned this week, but confirmation that I need to branch out of my skirt-comfort zone and run up a couple of tops in a semi-posh style. Any recommendations?

  1. What a great week! I think the horses dress is lovely for a Friday night meal – if you can’t wear something nice then when can you? You have lots of pretty skirts but definitely always room for more πŸ™‚

  2. Another lovely roundup. I think Delphine is a good work skirt but I have the urge to make everything in a bold print which sort of negates its wearability. Have you abandoned your selfie stick now? Have a good week – half term is just around the corner!

  3. You should be very pleased with your round-up this week, all great pieces and they work with each other so well. Quite a few of my tops are on their 2nd round already.

  4. You’re looking as fab as ever in your me made attire!
    I think up you need to run a course on how to smile for the camera, yours is ace and I always find myself smiling back! I think you need to share with us what you’re thinking as the shutter clicks! πŸ˜€

    • Ahh πŸ™‚ I’m smiling at my nine year old son on the other side of the lens, so it’s pretty easy. I also look very awkward if I attempt any other ‘look’ (even feels awkward just saying that) I look ridiculous, so big smiles it is. And perfect if they make people smile back too πŸ™‚

  5. Lovely week of outfits and I may be looking for a 9 year old photographer to help me with my MMMay posts. When you’re short, getting the proportions right can be a challenge with tops, skirts are so much easier.

    • πŸ™‚ Thank you! And you’re right, my husband always took photos looking down on me, causing me to look really ‘stumpy’, not a good look! It won’t be long until my son’s as tall as me though now…

  6. Some lovely outfits again! I’m slowly but surely catching up with you on the number of skirts made though. They’re so quick and easy to make and smart enough for work.

  7. Looking lovely this week! I have the same problem when my husband takes my photo, my legs look about six inches long! I’m also on the lookout for semi-posh top patterns, you could give the Colette Laurel a try. I’ve made a lace one and a Liberty one and they’re pretty useful for when you need something that looks a bit dressier than a T shirt. x
