Me-Made-May: Week 1

Thank you all for your lovely comments on my last post! It was like receiving a hundred virtual hugs from around the world. It meant so much to David and me! Thank you!!

I've been participating in Me-Made-May and it's time for a little round-up of outfits from last week (I missed the first day as I thought it was still April...hehehehehe):

The Lady of the Lake dress (McCall 3228 from 1939)

 The 'Life Happens' Blouse (McCall 1192 from 1945) and my 'Yipppeeeee Trousers' (Simplicity 3688 reissued pattern from 1941)

 My 'Paddington Goes to Scotland' dress (McCall's 8877 from 1967) with my Ness belt and shoes

 My 'I Need to Do More Lounging' Pyjamas (Simplicity 1558 from around 1933) and my 'Deco the Halls Tunic' (1933 reproduction pattern from VPLL)

 My 'First Blouse' (DuBarry 5327 from 1942) and my 'Going Green' trousers (Simplicity 3688 reissue from 1941).  I should call this outfit 'Rain, rain, go away....' 

 I tried out Casey's new tutorial for a 1940's braided hairstyle (LOVE it)! Hers is way neater than mine. Lol.

It's been fun to follow everyone's Me-Made-May outfits!  Do you find that you experiment more this month than normal with styling your handmade outfits?

  1. Lovely to see you using old patterns to make clothes.  I am having a 1970's flashback at the moment and trying out a few Willi Smith patterns for the second time.  Not quite the glamorous 30s and 40s, but practical and fun.

  6.  I just love your style!  I've been following your blog for some time and haven't seen a thing you've made that I haven't liked.  I'd love to overhaul my wardrobe in a similar vintage style.  Can you give me some advice on how and where to start?  What are the basics one must have for a 40's/50's style wardrobe?  I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!
