Me-Made-June Days 2, 3, 4 and 5

Wow! I didn't realize how difficult it would be to get a picture of myself each day of the month. I ended up recreating my last four days worth of outfits today so I could take pictures, but I promise what you see in the picture is what I wore that day!

Day 2
This was my second day of babysitting and after the first one I knew I needed to stay comfortable. I decided to throw on this top with some jeans. I whipped up this top at the end of May because I knew I needed some easier to wear items for my babysitting days. I used a t-shirt of mine to create the pattern.

Day 2- Me-Made Jersey Top

Day 3
This was another day comfort was pretty key. I went ice skating! So I popped on this shirt I redesigned a little while back. It's a 1x shirt from JCP that I cut in half, added a 3" elastic waist, and screen printed one of my cute little sailboats near the hem.

In the late afternoon I got ready for the events for the night and changed into my gray zebra printed dress. Friday was somewhere lovely and nice around 75 degrees so I wore a sweater and my beads! I went to a gallery opening, Boogie on Main, and out to Logan's that night and my outfit worked well for everything!

 Day 4

I had to work in the morning on Saturday. This is not a true representation of how I wore this dress to work that morning. It was a strapless dress at that point and I had to wear a shirt underneath to account for dress codes. Also, the top did NOT want to stay up so I used the scarf in my hair as a makeshift halter strap.
After work I came home and sewed the buttoned straps on and got rid of the t-shirt. I think this dress is so much more wearable now! The only problem is that I used a pattern (I'm going to guess a Simplicity) on this back in college and it doesn't fit my tush, my tush sits a lot lower than the pattern calls for. I wore this for a grad party, a benefit, and dinner and a movie date:)
Day 4- Me-Made Dress (ps. POCKETS!)
 Day 5
Today! (technically yesterday, it IS 1:08am) I made this dress during my senior year of high school. I bought the fabric during a class field trip to Virginia Marti College of Art and Design. I decided it seemed fitting to make a dress from the fabric for my interview at the college a year later! I used a pattern on this one as well, I believe it was a McCall's. I love how I styled it today, sometimes I kind of look like some kind of nurse or grandma. But I felt nice in it today:)

I meant to write sooner, but couldn't figure out the google account thing at the bottom. Look forward to reading more of your posts!

  2. the day 3 dress looks so cute!
