Me Made June recap and summer’s slipping away!

I can’t believe that I’ve only just sat down to write this and it’s already August seventeenth. This summer has completely gotten away from me! Continue reading


MMJ: Day 22

I’m getting a little behind in my posts, but better late than never. My outfit for yesterday, day 22 of Me Made June was definitely a cheater outfit. I had a cute skirt selected, complete with new strappy sandals, and then I awoke to rain, rain, and more rain. Added to the fact that it was cold out, and that I had two minutes to make a wardrobe change before leaving for work, and this is what I came up with.

** after seeing this photo – I realize the tunic top needs some altering. It was another clearance rack find ($4!), but it definitely needs to be brought in a little bit at the sides and armpits so that it looks less sloppy! **
The goods:
Infinity scarf – Me Made!
Eyelet tank – Old Navy
Jeans – Warehouse One
Sandals – Roxy
Earrings – Le Chateau

Hours worn:

Places visited: Work, dinner with bf.

Main activities: Working … watching the NHL Awards on TV… not by choice :)

Wear again? Yes! I’ve worn this scary so many times and love it more each time. It’s so fun! 

I also have a dress cut out of the scarf fabric that I need to get around to putting together…  It’s this Cynthia Rowley pattern, and I’m interested to see how it will turn out. Just as soon as I feel brave enough to tackle an invisible zipper.

I really love working with jersey. It’s simple and forgiving, so you can’t go wrong. Next up on my list is a few of these necklaces, in a bright coral!

MMJ: Days 16 – 19

I know, I know! I’ve missed the last four days. However I’m back in action today, so there will be another post later on with a new ensemble. It’s a refashion, but I had to dive back in somehow! Sewn items coming tomorrow :)

The past four days were very busy – I was gearing up for the half marathon I participated in on Father’s Day, and as a result spent much of the weekend in workout clothes and nothing handmade. If I had more pieces finished at the start of the month I think I would have been able to tough it out over the weekend, but this wasn’t the case. A little bit of a break was nice, I’m not going to lie – and now I’m back at it and looking forward to finishing out the month!

In the interim, I’ll leave you with this: I finished my half in 2:24, shaving 8 1/2 minutes off of my Personal Record! Had a lovely Father’s Day brunch with my Pops, brothers and boyfriend, and all in all enjoyed a sunny Sunday!
