First Week of Me-Made May

I had planned on posting these outfits to my blog daily, but my work schedule has been tough, so I haven't been able to do that. My apologies for the long, picture-heavy post.

Here are the latest outfits I've worn for Me-Made May:

Me-Made May Day 4
Lady Skater Dress and BurdaStyle Denim Jacket
 and a close-up of one of my favorite necklaces that I've made:

I believe I saw the inspiration necklace on caseymaura.com
 It turned rainy and cold one day, so I had a chance to wear a hand-knit pullover:

Climbing Vines Pullover by Joëlle Meier 
 Expecting similar weather the next day, I wore my favorite umbrellas pullover:

Umbrellas Pullover by Joji Locatelli
 It ended up being warm and sunny. Go figure.

 The next outfit carried me through a VERY long day at work in comfort.

 And here I am in my sewing room for the Friday Challenge (show your sewing space).

 I've already come to realize that I've been sewing an awful lot of knits. I like to sew them. They're easy and comfortable to wear. They're also quick enough to fit in a busy schedule...but...I feel more put together when wearing structured items like woven blouses and lined pencil skirts. I'm going to work on making more things like that!

Nothing wrong with knits they have their place but I know what you mean about wovens. Trying to do daily posts during MMM is difficult so don't apologise most of us understand.
