Me made May 2016 final

The end of May was an absolute whirlwind but I did manage to photograph what I wore.
It was still warm in mid-May and you can tell from these photos.
Brynna dress
Some days at work I didn't need a jacket so this cotton dress was fine for work. 
Simplicity top using John Kaldor fabric and a trusty red skirt from years ago.
It was nice to make and wear a new colourful Simplicity (1425) top to go with a trusty red skirt made way back. All of my skirts are fully lined.
McCalls 6460
Again it was a warm day so I wore this dress as I added pockets to the side seams for work.
Burda blouse and fully lined pants
The Burda shirt 2564 is a Minerva make from last year. The Burda pants are fully lined pants that work well when it gets cold. I made these 5 years ago.
Vogue 1204 jeans and Vogue 8815 top
When I got up in the morning, it was time for a bit of colour because there were a few office functions on that day. Both pieces are Vogue patterns and are three years old.
Then I got to wear a New Look top using shiny lycra top with my black jeans on a night out. It still was warm enough to go without a jacket. I can see why I like sci-fi costumes. The jeans were my Minerva jeans from 2 years ago.
Tessallate tee and Steeplechase leggings.
 Again I paired this new Tessallate tee from for Winter with a previously made pair of leggings. The colours work well together and brighten up a 5.30am gym room.
Vogue 1378 jeans, Burda 7140 jacket and Tessellate test tee 
So you can see the activities at the end of May drained a lot of my energies. I had to go to a workshop the day I wore this so I just threw anything together. The jeans are a Minerva Crafts project too.
Candor outfit made from factory cut offs
I loved wearing this outfit to work. It was another tough day but knowing I had two new pieces on made me start the day out better.
Butterick 6062 coat, stripe tee and Jalie 2908 jeans
On the last Saturday night is was cold so I got to wear my new coat with Jalie jeans and a green stripe top.
Burda 7140 jacket and Simplicity 2154 pencil skirt
The cold finally hit last week so I was able to drag out the boots for these Me Made pieces. So you've seen the Dauntless jacket again because it's so comfortable. The skirt is a new one to be blogged. The top was made a few years ago too.
1960s Simplicity 2154 jacket and pencil skirt: to be blogged.
It was finally cold enough to wear this 1960s set using Elliott Berman fabric worn with a grey wrap top.

The bottom line is, Me Made May gave me to opportunity to wear new pieces with some favourite existing pieces. 
I hope everyone who participated enjoyed the experience. Thanks Zoe.
