MMM Week 1

This is my first year participating in Me-Made-May.  Yay!


Here's what I said in my pledge that I managed to add on the signup post on May 2nd.
I have planned to participate for a while, but now I'm officially stating that I, jennifer (MizzSmartyPants) of http://www.clothinghacker.com/, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '16. I endeavor to wear at least one me-made item each work day for the duration of May 2016. In addition, I also pledge to wear a me-made item on any weekend day where I leave the house.
So here's my first week of outfits.

Sunday, May 1

I was in Portland for a dance competition last weekend, but I knew that Sunday was May 1st, so I specifically packed a me-made dress to wear to come home in.  Although, silly me, I didn't think about getting a good photo, but I do have a photo that you can kind of see what I'm wearing.


I took this photo to see my hair after I took down the updo that the hair ladies gave me for Saturday's competition that I slept in because I was too tired to deal with all the hairspray and glue (yes, glue) in my hair.

This was the most recent Lady Skater I made.

Monday, May 2

My work week photos will most likely all be work bathroom mirror shots.  I don't have a full length mirror at home for some reason and I'm always in too big of a rush out the door in the mornings anyway.



This is my animal print Moneta that I made over a year ago and wear quite often.

Tuesday, May 3


This is a dress from the Ottobre 5/2015 issue and the design is called Twig.  I thought I blogged about it, but couldn't find the published post.  Well, it's because I never finished the blog post and it's sitting there as a draft.  I guess I need to get on the ball with that!

Wednesday, May 4


This is my Rainbow Ethnic Chevron Lady Skater that I didn't blog about, but mentioned in my Top 5 of 2015 post.  It's one of my favorite dresses because the colors are so pretty.  I have some extra of this fabric so I can make another when this one wears out or if I lose too much weight to be able to wear it anymore.

Thursday, May 5


I was feeling a little blah this day and I also had a dance lesson after work and no clean dance pants to wear under a dress/skirt due to not having done laundry yet since spending a long weekend dancing.  So I'm wearing RTW jeans with a See Kate Sew Dreamer Tee I made last summer from a green stripe knit and then hand painted flowers on it to cover up some dye bleed the fabric picked up in the wash.  I swear I remember writing up a blog post about this top, but I don't have one, so who knows what I was remembering.  I'm also wearing my elephant kimono that I did actually blog about in February.  I'm not as pleased with how I look in pants and tops because they all cut me right in half at my widest point.  But I have some ideas about how to fix 

Friday, May 6



This is one of the dresses I made for last weekend's dance competition.  Friday night's dinner had a Bohemian theme, so I, of course, had to make a dress.  I was a little unsure about wearing it to work because it sorta feels a bit on the nicer side.  But it was fine and I was worried about nothing.

Saturday, May 7

This is a Simplicity 1375 dress I made last summer as part of a contest that I ended up winning.  I thought I blogged about it because I remember writing details about the construction and posting a photo of the sketch I did if it.  But I must just be blogging in my dreams. 



 
I don't think I've ever actually worn this dress before today.  I wore a $3 Old Navy tank top underneath to give a little bit of modesty.  I'm not usually one to worry about that too much, but the neckline on this dress is pretty low and we were going out to a family place for breakfast.
