To Sew and to Wear – Me Made May post

It’s that time of year again.

Yes. It’s Me Made May. That month when I suddenly become someone who acts like a fashion blogger, getting everyone around to snap pictures of me during the day in the hope that one (just one, is all I ask for) of the pics will actually show both the outfit and me and not have me have my eyes closed, my mouth open or just looking , well –  slightly insane… (especially because my son seems to think it’s best to press the button while I’m talking…)

So what have I been wearing? Today I’m showing you Me Made May 5th to 8th (I am sorry to admit that I didn’t get any pictures I’d post publicly the first days of May…)

Here I am on Monday:

I was in Copenhagen all day, having some business meetings and fabric shopping as well.
I wore my navy polka dot Audrey Knit Dress (pattern of the month, this month…so 25% off!), with red pumps and a very old grey cardigan. Oh, and I had my red polka dot Lotta Lady bag with me!
It was cold-ish (10 degrees C) but didn’t rain. Flags on the parliament building tower in the background because it was the anniversary of the Danish liberation after WW2.

Tuesday I looked like this:

I was teaching all Day – this picture was taken during my Tuesday night sewing class.
I’m wearing rtw jeans, one of my MariaDenmark Birgitte Tees and great new blue shoes from Ecco. Gotta love heels you can wear all day without your feet hurting!

 

Wednesday I was teaching the beginners I’ve talked about before, and they had told me they wanted to make a tube top.
I’ve never worn or made a tube top before, so I made this in the morning before I left for the class – you know to try it out and to inspire them:-)

It’s basicly a piece of jersey – on the top it’s the measurement of my upper bust, then grading out to fit over my hips. And a casing at the top with a 1.5 cm elastic.
Under normal circumstances absolutely not work appropriate, but in this case, I guess it was:-) But you can tell I’m feeling a little uncomfortable…
Also wearing rtw jeans, old grey cardigan and fab Ecco shoes.

 

Today I was back at the class (helping kids to make tube tops), then went home and worked at admin stuff all afternoon before I went outside to do a little bit of weed pulling.

I’m wearing the same rtw jeans I wore yesterday and the day before (yes, they will go into the washer tonight), a very old (actually the original) MariaDenmark Birgitte Basic Tee, my Sewaholic Minoru jacket and my favourite Hunter wellies.
Oh, and the garden gloves counts as accesories…
