Me Made May: Week 2, Part 2

Day 9: 50s Mail Order Dress; really old cardi with a bleach stain on it; Rivers shoes.

 Day 10: Self-drafted circle skirt; KMart top; Rivers shoes (with the straps undone because I was lazy)

Day 11: KwikSew 3521; Chic A Booti cardi (really horrid, cheap and nasty store, but the cardis were cheap so I bought 2).

I have a few things to say about this outfit.
 Firstly, I do not have enough me-mades to wear an entire me-made outift every day for May, so there will be a lot of 'outfits' that are really just one item, like this one. Towards the end of the month when I run out of stuff, it will probably just be a scarf!

Secondly- jeans. I really hate jeans at the moment. My body has changed so much in the last two years that it is impossible to find jeans that fit me properly. Luckily, I have a habit of buying good quality jeans from op shops without trying them on, and upon searching through my jeans collection, I found 3 pairs that were too big for me last year but that fit over my larger bum now. They are still too big around my hips but a belt will solve that.

I decided that this Mother's Day I didn't want any more pyjamas, slippers, bath stuff, keyrings, etc and informed Husband that I would be purchasing myself a leather jacket. I could not believe my luck when I found this on Ebay. It is from the 70s but it looks brand new- the condition is immaculate. And it was only $50!!!! AND IT FITS ME LIKE A GLOVE. I wore it all day today and I want to wear it to bed.


  1. I love the first dress Hun with green floral. So sweet. I hope you had lovely Mother's Day. X

    1. I thought that dress would be right up your alley!
      Mother's Day was super, hope yours was too xo

  2. Love that 50s mail order dress! And yes, circle skirts are a pain in the bum to hem! But they are so worth the extra time I think, they just go with everything and make you look put together without having to think too much :) I say make a blue one! You'll be wearing it at least once a week :)
