Me Made May 2016 – It’s a wrap

This May has been rather challenging for my wardrobe as the first 3 weeks were a lot warmer than usual and this is where I realised again that I need cardigans as the two I have were in high rotation.

This year I decided not to clutter up my blog with daily or weekly posts and the collage below is what I have worn during May.  This link will take you to my Flicker Album if you would like to see any of my outfits in more detail.

I know I don’t want a large wardrobe, so I am quite happy to see most of my garments being worn multiple times, my biggest challenge is to make the outfits look different when I am sitting at my desk at work.

There are still holes in my wardrobe and this is what I need to make:

  • I still need layers in my wardrobe and even though this comes to light every May I haven’t managed to rectify this.
  • I only have 1 plain long sleeved top and this made it difficult to wear a couple of other items in my wardrobe when the weather finally got cooler.
  • Some more necklaces.
So how did I go with my challenges for May 2016?
“I, Sharon from Petite & Sewing, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’16;I will wear handmade clothing (except lingerie) for the duration of May.  My challenge is to finish the Burda wool jacket I started in January this year as well as lengthening the 3/4 sleeves on my Miette cardigan.”

Not 100% finished but both garments are looking like they will be worn this Winter so that is a plus and it means two more layers added to the wardrobe!
  • Burda 7286 has the hems, pick the buttons and buttonholes left to do.
  • My Miette has one long sleeve and the other one is halfway there.
I really liked seeing the variety in the MeMadeMay2016 Flicker group and there are a few things now on my wish list and that includes some cardigans!

  1. You always look so well for-ordinated and stylish Sharon, thank you for sharing our outfits again. I always like seeing my own favourites of yours crop up again like your brown skirt and the blue one too, it's not a bad thing but a very good thing indeed to have repeats during the month! shows how wearable everything is 🙂

    I really enjoyed seeing all your outfits Sharon so thank you for posting. I agree about layers, they are so useful as the weather gets cooler.


  3. I quite agree, a wearable capsule wardrobe with just enough variety is all anyone needs – otherwise choices just become overwhelming. Looks like you need to make a few tops for work as these are what will be seen most. No-one will notice the same bottoms.
