Me Made May Week 1

Week 1 is in the books. As a refresher, I had pledged to wear entirely self-stitched garments (except undergarments) for the duration of the month but I'm omitting pictures on the weekends.
Me Made May Day 1
Day 1:
handknit Goldie sweater
jalie cargos
tiger coriolis socks
gifted earrings
clarks flats

this sweater has seen better days. the neckline has stretched out a bit and the hem is slowly disintegrating but i still wear it occasionally. i love the color.
Me Made May Day 2
Day 2:
Simplicity 2443 dress
refashioned cardigan
lucky emmie flats

i bought this ann taylor loft cotton cardi at a thrift store for a couple of bucks. I added acetate lining flowers very similar to this one. perhaps it's cheating a bit to include embellished items but i'm counting it just the same.
Me Made May Day 3
Day 3:
handkerchief linen vogue 8747
jersey maxi skirt
shell earrings purchased ages ago
limited scarf belt
bass sandals

i roughly followed this tutorial to make the skirt. i used bamboo/cotton jersey from fabric.com and i love the fabric. it doesn't wrinkle like other bamboo rayon i've purchased and it's super comfy to wear. i didn't have any wide elastic so i shirred the waist with elastic thread. i hemmed the top edge but the bottom has a serged rolled hem. this skirt will probably get worn weekly throughout the spring and summer months. i love it.
Me Made May Day 4
Day 4:
darling ranges dress
h&m charm necklace
target leopard peep toes

see you next week!
