MMM12 week 3 and rest of May round up

Here is the rest of my MMM12.  I kept up with wearing my 3 days of MMM a week, but got worse throughout the month at taking photo's.  These are the ones that I managed to take:

Sunday 13th May:
Middlest getting into the swing of MMM by fashioning a skirt from rhubarb leaves and string!

Monday 14th May
Me-Made blouse/top thing,
H&M longsleeved T
This top was made pre-blog, from a dress that I loved, but didn't wear any more.  I used a pattern Simplicity 5195, which I think is OOP. I made view D, the green one with ties at the shoulder.

Again far to cold to wear on it's own, hence the long sleeved top underneath. I'm not sure I'm a fan of this layered type of look on me, but I am using this month to try slightly different things on the odd occasion!

Wednesday 16th May

Me-Made Portfolio Dress
MerinoMink Cardi
Leopard print tights
I am getting a lot of wear out of my Portfolio dress this May.  I think I am going to have to either line the front of the dress or make a mini slip as it walks up my legs whatever I wear it with, which was driving me mad....Worn to my sewing class and lunch with Sister.

Saturday 19th May

Me-Made Portfolio - again
Leopard tights again
Blue curly collar cardi
worn to a friends school fete, where unbelievably, we saw the sun for quite a lot of the afternoon - it was certainly warm enough to remove my cardi whilst outdoors!

Tuesday 22nd May

 Me-Made Sorbetto
Johnny Q jeans

Saturday 26th May
Me-Made Newlook 6895
Kew denim skirt

Worn to Ickworth House for Husband's birthday day out.  This is the first outing this top has had and I love it! It just needs something to hold the ol' bra straps  out of sight - the neckline is very wide.

Sunday 27th May

Me-Made geometric refashion
Denim skirt originally from Monsoon,

The skirt was bought from local charity shop years ago. It has been my favourite summer skirt for some years and it going to need replacing soon... Worn pottering about the garden, weeding and drinking Pimms!

Monday 28th May

Same outfit as yesterday, toasting Husband's birthday!Slightly different weather...

Wednesday 30th May

No photographic evidence of this one, but I was wearing my Turquoise Top:

The End!


  1. Hello Tamsin! You looked great in the MMM12. My favourite is the last top, Love those little ruffles. Also that simplicity pattern: I likey! the sleeved version looks pretty good.
    Your girl is te cutest thing with her leaf-skirt! Looking forward to seeing what you make next!

  2. Hurrah, your mmm def seemed to capture the spirit of the challenge with as you say a bit of experimentation, and loving your me mades. Your outfits are great, do love that last blouse with frills, but your denim portfolio with leopard tights has to be my fave still! Great rhubarb skirt!!

  3. Rhubarb leaf skirt=hilarious. Reminds me I gotta make a portfolio-I've been sitting on that pattern too long..
