After wearing pants all of the first week, this week my Me-Made May theme was dresses! And somehow, despite a wardrobe FULL of dresses (easily enough for a whole month) I made three new ones!
May 8th: A new dress! This is hack of my TNT Comino Cap dress, inspired by a friend’s dress on Instagram and a picture I’d pinned last year. I struggle more with anxiety and depression since my concussion, and this was a project that help put me in a better headspace when I was down. And of course, I wore it right away even though maxi dresses will get their own week at the end of the month.
10: More Cashmerette! This Appleton is a few years old but still a goodie! Every time I wear it I think, “I need to make more of these!”
14: Look, I got dressed on the 13th but had a panic attack and went back to bed. So here we are at the 14th! Here’s another example of sewing myself happy – I bought this fabric (and the next one) on the weekend and sewed it up right away! This is a Cashmerette Montrose, and I’ll blog it in full soon!
15: I love pink! There needs to be more hot pink fabric in my life! This is a Groove dress with some hacks. I felt so happy all day in this dress!
So what have I learned from Dress Week? Mostly that it’s too cold for dresses. Also that I need to dig out all my legging shorts for wearing underneath. And… that’s about it!
I cannot believe we are halfway through the month! This week I’m wearing jumpsuits, and (you guessed it!) it’s pretty cold for jumpsuits. Come on, spring!
