May Day...

Wednesday, May 1, 2013
It's the first of May which means two things - it's the start of Me Made May and it's my birthday in 28 days.

I made this little wrap blouse about 2 years ago and for some reason, I always forget that it's in my wardrobe. I don't know why because it's a very sweet little top, but it does wrinkle like crazy! I got the fabric in a random bundle of fabrics from a thrift store back in NZ a few years ago, so I'm not exactly sure what it is, but possibly a cotton/rayon mix due to the drape and softness of the fabric.


I'm wearing it today with my self-drafted black circle skirt that I finished a few weeks back.

In other news, I finally finished my violet wrap dress last night. If I didn't already know how to do invisible hand stitching, I certainly do now! It will be making an appearance on the blog next week.

Check back on the blog for Me Made outfit post round ups on Mondays, but  during the weeks I will be posting them on flickr each day and probably on Instagram as well.

How is the first day of your Me Made challenge going?

  1. I recently bought that same blouse pattern! It's always nice to see things made-up. The polka dots are incredibly cute! Great outfit to kick-off the month!

  5. That blouse is lovely, it looks gorgeous with the circle skirt! I always find wearing skirts and blouses together so tricky because it's not often I find ones that look good together. I need to try harder :P

  7. I really love the color of your blouse and the polka dots! Mint green is an obsession of mine at the moment, and you've inspired me to make a blouse or dress out of that color!

  8. You look great! I remembered today was May 1, so that's good, and I wore two handmade pieces, but I'm actually feeling more nervous now that I can actually get through the month...

  9. You are very a very talented seamstress and I admire your work.Esp this hand drafted skirt that suits you perfectly.The length and the volume of it are fantastic.
    Too bad you don't wear that blouse more often.I'm taking my first steps into sewing and drafting but I also love crochet and I also participate in me made May.

Thank you so much for stopping by to leave me a comment, like most people, I really do appreciate them all!

Due to the large amount of spam I seem to be receiving for some strange reason, comments may take longer to be published than usual. Apologies!
