Me-Made-May round up #5

The last round up of  MMM 2013!

May 28th:

Fleece Renfrew.  Miserable day weatherwise. Top worn all day to include family trip to the cinema. Husband and I saw the new Star Trek film and the girls saw Epic. The afternoon included a fab coffee at South Street Pantry, and a pretty dismal chinese buffet.

May 29th:

Fleece Renfrew (no picture). For the evening I changed into a new un-blogged make to go to a Private View of an exhibition at Mall Galleries.  Thomas' cousin Barley, and his girlfriend Ellie graduated from Wimbledon College of Art last summer, but this is the first exhibition we have manged to see apart from his degree show. It was fantastic to see their work in a proper gallery space. We went armed with a cheque book, but all the ones we liked were already sold! After the gallery we went for dinner at a small tapas place called Andalucia, on Panton Street.  Many (ok, 16) years ago this was the wine bar where Husband and I met!

May 31st

Stripey Lydia top (no picture). In fact I wore the same outfit as May 9th, minus bright red accessories.  Worn to lounge around and relax at my sister-in-law's amazing house on the north Norfolk coast.

 I have no major thoughts on the month really. I realised that I wear my me-mades quite regularly anyway, without out having to think too hard about it. I have made a lot of tops over the last couple of years which has held me in good stead and if the weather had been better there would have been more variety!  I love looking at other peoples pretty dresses, but to be honest for my lifestyle of being a busy SAHM my wardrobe needs to be more on the practical side, and that seems to be what I have made - so far! I stuck to my pledge of 3 items a week - the hardest thing was remembering to take the photos. Thank you Zoe, for organizing these months - it has been great fun and I have enjoyed following your own challenge this time round. How I wish I sewed when I was pregnant!

I also realised that I am very behind in blogging my makes recently - I have at least three if not more items to blog about fully, which I shall endeavour to do in the next couple of weeks.
