Me-Made-June '11 - Week 3

The weather continued to be hot this week, but since I spent a week in skirts, I thought I'd give pants a go. This week's outfit selection might seem a bit repetitive because I have only made four pairs of pants/shorts:
  • white linen pants - OOP Butterick 4077
  • gray linen-look pants - OOP Butterick 4077
  • denim drawstring pants - New Look 6811
  • khaki linen-look city shorts - OOP Simplicity 4366
  • Monday - OOP Butterick 4077 white linen pants, sewn 2006?; worn with a really old RTW blue t-shirt
  • Tuesday - New Look 6811 denim drawstring pants, sewn 2010; worn with U2 concert t-shirt and RTW scarf as belt
  • Wednesday - OOP Simplicity 4366, hemmed to city shorts length, khaki linen-like fabric, sewn 2007?; OOP Simplicity 4076 twist top, sewn 2009; Simplicity 2443 coral linen jacket, sewn 2010 - I quickly ditched the jacket...too hot!
  • Thursday - OOP Butterick 4077 gray pants linen-like fabric, sewn 2009; Jalie Criss-Cross top, sewn 2009
  • Friday - khaki shorts (again); Vogue 8565 green rayon jersey top, sewn 2009?; handmade earrings
  • Saturday - white pants (again); worn with RTW black tank and magenta t-shirt
  • Sunday - RTW white pants; McCall's 6203 draped top, sewn 2011!
My favorite outfit of the week was Tuesday's. I recently purchased the scarf and have been looking for ways to add it to my outfits. I used to wear scarves tied around my waist all the time in high school. This outfit made me feel young and playful. I cheated a bit on Sunday by wearing RTW pants, but I was tired of wearing all my handmade ones. Plus it gave me a jump start on my theme for week 4 - New Stuff! So much of what I have is several years old, to prove to myself (and the world) that I have been sewing recently, this coming week I plan to wear at least one item each day sewn within the last year.


  1. wow, wow, wow! What great outfits!
