Week One Plus for Me Made May 2016

Here's the round-up of outfits worn since May 1.

  • Bottom right:  Rowan sweater originally made for the ladyfriend.  It got a little felted in the wash so it became my sweater.  The pants are J. Morgan Puett.
  • Bottom left:  Me-made wrap skirt with Imogene + Willie shirt and my Blundstones
  • Middle right:  Cappucino dress with Robert Clergerie shoes
  • Middle middle:  Saint James top with Alabama Chanin skirt
  • Middle left: Long sleeve t-shirt (worn with Prana jeans, not seen)
  • Top right bottom:  Junya Watanabe shirt with Betsy Ross patterns pants
  • Top right top:  Lisette top (worn with Prana jeans, not seen - again)
  • Top left:  Wrap skirt with mustard top-down sweater, Blundstones, and a Wrangler jacket.
I'm in DC now, visiting family, and what I'm starting to realize is that I don't make enough things in black.  Putting together a little capsule collection for the trip (brought only carry-on suitcase) made me realize that while I have a fair amount of me-made clothing, I need some to make some things that are more easily integrated into my overall wardrobe.  As it happens, I've been mulling over a little capsule collection for the fall/winter although it's not black.  We'll see how all this pans out.

If you're participating in MeMadeMay16, how's it going?  Are you encountering any challenges?


  1. Hey you're in my neck of the woods!! And I've considered a capsule collection of knits but I love color. So I've been buing more neutral clothes to pair with my brighter knits.

    1. I'm home now, but I did pick up a couple of skeins of Miss Babs yarn at Fibre Space in Alexandria.

  2. I rarely knit in black. I should probably think about that, too. I really like the Rowan sweater. Hope you had fun/are having fun in DC!

    1. The Rowan sweater has a bit of a Japanese feel that I really like. Cheers!
