The last third of me made outfits. I’ve still been in recovery & off the exercise, and squeezed in a week in Cornwall – holidays! Lovely & much needed 🙂 But I packed way too much – in fact the clean unworn clothes I brought back outnumbered those that I put in the laundry! I took a photo – look!!
Over optimistic packing shorts, bikinis & my favorite sleeveless tops …
A day at the office, grabbing lunch in Parade Gardens with the Empire Hotel in the background.
Simplicity 1459 dress (oh my, this dress washes like a dream – no ironing !! I have to admit that I was a bit fearful the first time I washed it, imaging all that skirt to press…..but no ironing required. Score!)
Then when I got home I slobbed out in …
Polka dot leggings & skirt combo (yet to be blogged)
Working at home & feeling chilly….
So Zo Dolores batwing floral dress– now this is best when worn with a cardigan mainly due to its all over floral, it is a bit overwhelming without the solid colour to break it up. But as a cosy stylish dress, it’s a winner ….

It was a damp & rainy day today & we went for a rainy walk, exploring the neighbourhood a bit, but no photos in the rain …
Today’s walk to the beach …
Sneaking in another read at the beach …

But in the evening snuggled up with my
Started with Floral Hudsons, Red Oslo and Drafting top as the evening before

Shopping! Rain! Truro fabrics 🙂
SoZo Dolores batwing top (this one is actually made by Zoe herself & was a gift. I think it counts for MMM?)
The perfect holiday dress – super comfy to spend 4 hours in the car driving home

I managed to go for a run today – I felt that I had enough recovery time & my friends were running around the country lanes, even though it was raining….

Then changed into
And on a related note, here is a shot of my me made Pjs- summer versions. I have been refashioning those cotton finishers’ tshirts that I have got after half marathons using SoZo’s vest pattern. They are so much more wearable now.
I have also an array of Pjs – full length, but recently whipped up a couple of pairs of shorts using T&B Love at First Stitch Margot pattern – but shortening them. Using my four thread overlocker stitch I can whip these up in less than an hour from cutting out to sewing a button on to identify the front. Sorry no photo here!
So my thoughts about Me Made May? I do really only tend to wear my self made clothes every day, including pants (most days & of varying quality!) & slips, so the challenge is always taking the photos for me. Having good solid jackets & cardigans make all the difference to completing a me made outfit & I loved my Suede jacket & my new as yet unblogged red & teal cardigans.
I was disappointed to be so off form that I couldn’t play around with my running clothes – that would have been more interesting! But in effect I had 3 weeks off running which was a shame.
In terms of the photos, I didn’t get out & about as much as I thought I would, so whether I hit my target of 5 photos off-site is doubtful. Why I would think I could get 5 shots in out of 7 beats me – I don’t work in the town as much as I used to, I think I was a bit rash…but the selfie stick was a fun toy to play with & I expect to use it more now. I love that it looks like I am doing something other than posing for a photo as I have to use two hands – makes me see how I would look water skiing …..
Have you enjoyed celebrating your me mades in May?
