Me-Made-May Week 2

Wow, can you believe we are already in the middle of May? Unbelievable!  Here's a recap of what I've been wearing for Me-Made-May this last week...

1950's 'Betty's Riding Blouse' (Maudella 1268 ), my Ness waistcoat (I'm so happy the blouse goes with this so well!) and my 'Yipppeeee' Trousers (Simplicity 3688)

My '1940 dress' (McCall 3638) with matching Ness shoes and me-made belt

My '1931 Spring Suit' jacket (EvaDress repro pattern) with my '1933 Deco the Halls Tunic Dress' (VPLL repro pattern)

My '1940 Sundress' (McCall 4043) with my Ness shoes and thrifted cardigan

My 'Raspberry Sorbet' dress (a favourite me-make from McCall 5384) and my favourite shoes again (from Ness)

The 'Kitten' skirt (McCall's 8947 from the 50's) with a thrifted blouse and cardigan sweater.

YAY! I'm having so much fun with Me-Made-May!

    Hi Ute! Thanks so much! I really enjoyed pairing up that skirt with a bit more conservative blouse and sweater--they seem to balance each other out! :)

  5. Oh my, you are too cruel for making us pick a favourite Debi! If I absolutely had to, I'd be torn between your stunning raspberry sorbet dress and your playful kitten skirt!

  7. I think this time around, I like day 11 the best, with your 1940 sundress and Ness shoes. And such a cute pairing of different prints to boot!

  8. The only thing that could make me love your blog more is if you scanned in the pattern envelopes. I love to see them. (Surprise!)

  10. I love that last one the Kitten! so gorgeous, really flatters your figure and gives you a lovely waist and the print is fabulous! Also love your shoes!  Love the raspberry sorbet too, but the kitten is just so easy breezy looking!

    I really like this particular outing for your 1940 Dress - your photo here shows it in a completely different light (even though I love the other shots with the jacket too).

    I would love your input.  In a 1916 diary entry, my grandmother describes an outfit she has put together to wear to a wedding.  She writes about a pink chiffon girdle.  Do you have any idea what that is?  Thank you so much.  http://www.starwoodquilter.blogspot.com/2012/05/old-maids-puzzle-quilt-block.html

  16. The Raspberry Sorbet dress is definately my favorite. The fit is great, the colour really suits you and the design is just lovely. I also quite like the 'kitten' skirt.

  17. I'm no real expert here, but in this case, "girdle" might just refer to a belt (in the pink chiffon, probably a fancy one to be worn over the dress). 
    Terms for items of clothing often go through a 'life cycle' of sorts and the contraption we think about when reading the word girdle is after all a form of suspender/garter belt.

  18. Raspberry Sorbet dress! :)  I want one too!

  19. HA! No way could I pick a favorite. These are all so different and so beautiful. And it's lucky that you are so far away because if I saw you in person, I would try to steal your shoes. Or at least drool all over them. Okay, I guess that would be weird. But I do love your shoes.

  20. Each day looks great but 12 and 13 just kick it into overdrive! Beautiful outfits. Also, your hair looks Hollywood-stylist good in the last picture!

  21. Gosh, you are looking so freaking fabulous.  Love these ensembles!  You really have a knack for this, lady!

  22. I love them all, but I think I favour the first and last a smidgen more!
