Me-Made-June - Day 1

Thinking about Me-Made-June has made me realise a couple of things:

1. I do wear a self made garment pretty much every day, and
2. I don't have a large wardrobe and really can't justify having a huge amount of clothing.

So this has created an additional challenge for me, instead of picking out the usual combination of garments, I am hoping to style these garments differently so you don't see the exact same outfit during the month of June fingers crossed.

Now to get the ball rolling.

For a change today is quite mild, 19c at 7.30am, but I don't expect it to get much warmer as the day progresses.

Blouse/Top: Vogue 8572 (OOP)

Trouser: Custom made for me whilst in China in 2008.

Accessory: Made by a friend for the June Capsule Contest at Stitchers Guild

Shoes Diana Ferrari

Your idea of Me Made June is perfect. I haven't taken a challenge like this before, but have tried to "make due" with what's in my wardrobe and restyle items in different ways. This has created a new appreciation for my clothes and has expanded my outfit offerings. I hope that you will be pleasantly surprised by your self made clothes after June ends.

Your outfit is really nice. Love the hem on the shirt.

Your take on me made June sounds like a good challenge. I tend to wear exactly the same outfits a lot, so I will be very interested in how you vary your style with the same garments.

Good for you taking on this challenge. Yes, the hem on the top is pretty.
