Today's outfit was put together in a flash. The vintage men's shirt was given to me by mum. For many years I didn't know what to do with it but kept it anyway and even fitted it.
The collar I crocheted this winter after I fell in love with the color of the thread. Alas, it was so expensive I could afford just one roll. Thus, the collar.
Skirt thrifted and shortened/taken in.
See my lovely bag! It was waiting for me in a pile of belts , bags and wallets and had my name on it.
And now a closer look at the star of this outfit
What? The new collection for summer and spring is out in the big retail stores? Who cares? Certainly not me!!!

This is my first Me made May outfit post where I took a pledge to wear at least one item or accessory that I either sew/crochet or refashioned myself. I thought this would be such a great challenge to wear what I have made and also realize how much I have made the past 3 years.
In the photo above I've sewn the skirt 3 summers ago and it's a simple skirt attached on a piece of elastic, one of my first and easiest projects.
Although I've worn it a lot I don't think I've made it justice up until today that it was included in a 40s inspired theme.
I'd love to show you a bit of the details in my outfit. I've drooled over those elastic belts with wonderful clips so in lack of one I improvized with my new/old brooch. See, when there is will there is a way.
The following is the fastest refashion project I've ever made
To this...in minutes
Bye bye for now and don't forget to check tomorrow for my next me made outfit.
