Me-Made-May 2016 Days 27 - 31

Wow, the last week of May!  This month has gone by so fast, but I've been pleasantly surprised to see my handmade wardrobe held up well. 

And after saying that.... no photo for Day 27 as workout gear was worn all day.  I do not make my workout gear, instead concentrating on improving my sewing skills on basics and nicer things to wear as it seems I'm a turtle in the sewing speed department.  ;) 

On Memorial Weekend's Saturday, my family went to see the newly released 'Alice Through The Looking Glass' and my husband, knowing I'd not gotten a photo for this day, insisted we take the time for Melissa to snap this shot, below, on the iphone.   He's not keen on photos in a public place..... particularly a busy movie theater!..... but understands this is important to me, so I especially appreciate his support.  And by the way, highly recommend this movie.  We always get a big bucket of popcorn drizzled with lots and lots of butter, a coke to share..... then off for pizza afterwards to discuss the movie.  Family tradition.  :) 
Day 28
We've had wide temperature swings this month, so it was nice to share cool weather pieces, as well as summertime pieces, like in this outfit I wore to church below. 
Day 29
And I missed Day 30, Memorial Day Monday's photo as our garden needed tending and things needed done around the house so I wore clothes that were not handmade.  And I was okay with missing this second day of photos in this week as May is also about 'real life' and even though a photo a day is important to share my handmade clothes, it is also 'real' that some days..... though not frequent.... I simply do not wear handmade clothes. 

And it seemed appropriate to wear my Monet dress this last day, below, as it was also what I wore the first day.  An early trip to the city for an appointment, then home after eating lunch out.  I really love the comfort of this dress.  
Day 31
Because I've already journaled my month, I shall wrap up everything here by simply saying Thank You so much for following me on this journey to make a handmade wardrobe!

  1. Thank you for sharing Lisa! It was so much fun to see what you've been wearing and to hear about your day! I think it's great that you do not force yourself to take daily pictures and wear memade clothes every day and that you didn't take this too seriously.

It's very sweet of your husband to be so supportive of me-made May, mine is the absolutely nothing like this, I'm afraid! Thanks so much for sharing your daily outfits and titbits of life during the month I so enjoyed all your updates. you are both stylish and elegant and a true lady, and I love seeing you in all your lovely creations :)

  4. What a pretty end to Me Made May. It doesn't matter that you don't wear me made workout gear - make what works for you, and leave the rest. We can't do everything - at least, I can't! Lovely that your husband takes photographs for you - mind would, but I would not ask because he is just so overloaded with other demands. Looking forward to seeing your next make :)

  6. What a pretty end to Me Made May. Like Hana, I enjoy seeing your everyday life as well, and how your clothes fit into your life. How nice of your husband to take photos - mine would, but I don't like to add to his already overloaded and demanding life. One day!!!
