Me Made May – Week Two

And what a great week it was! Not quite a full week of handmade though. I didn’t ever fully commit – although actually that might have just been on Instagram (@fee_smith in case you’re interested), but hey four days are better than none!

So, beginning with Saturday, I went for my current favourites. These shorts are the first I’ve ever made and I’m amazed at how well they turned out! They are Simplicity Cynthia Rowley pattern and I’d highly recommend it! Check out my pattern review post if you’re interested.

I wore these for a great day back at home in the Lakes with the uni girls. It was so much fun my face ached from laughing so much. Take me back to uni and living with these girls! 
 
Up next we have this little crop top. I made this using New Look 6217, which should really be a full length top. This pretty floral viscose fabric was just something I had leftover from a dress I made and I didn’t have quite enough for the full length, so cropped was how it had to be! 
   

  

First handmade workwear of the week was this teal shift dress in polyester panama. Check out my earlier post to hear me absolutely rave about this pattern – I love it! 

  
And to finish off week 2 I wore this handmade skirt for drinks on Friday night. I went for a browse in River Island on my lunch and they have skirts in at the moment that are exactly the same shape but with a zip down the front. I love it when that happens. Maybe I’ll make another using this pattern and pop a zip in. 

  
Thanks for reading, pop back for week 3!
