As promised, here’s a round-up of my me-made creations from the first week of May!
I kicked off the month with my new Mabel skirt. I had Friday off of work, so I paired it with one of my old college shirts for a leisurely day of food trucks and fabric shopping.
My next self-made wear was on Saturday, May 3rd, also known as Free Comic Book Day! I had to work all day (plays world’s smallest violin), but I still wanted to share my geek pride. I opted to wear my Marvel Macaron with a black cardigan. It went over quite well. Several of my co-workers and the weekend police officers liked it.
Mabel got another wear on May 5th. This time, I wore it with a black cowl neck tank and a blue cardigan. This may be my favorite work outfit to date. It’s so comfortable but still manages to look put together. I definitely have plans to make more Mabels and more knit tops over the summer.
I completely forgot to document this the day of, but I also wore my Renfrew on Wednesday, May 7th. I wore it with a RTW black knit maxi and a purple cardigan. I’m still quite fond of my Renfrew, but I really want to make another version that’s a bit lighter and more fitted.
That wraps up my first week of Me-Made-May 2014! I’m hoping to wrangle out a new knit dress this week, so hopefully it’ll be in the rotation as well. Are any of you participating in MMMay this year? How’s your challenge going so far?

Love the looks! All my made items are too warm for May…I’ll just have to use my dish and dust cloths until I make a lighter sweater or scarf!
Thanks! I’m having a similar issue. So many of my clothes were made in the winter, and Texas summers are not conducive to too many layers!
I love the Marvel dress!
Thanks! It’s one of my favorites 🙂
