Skirt me made

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

Bye bye for now and don't forget to check tomorrow for my next me made outfit.


  1. So beautiful! I love all the ideas that you give here, great blog! Lots of inspiration!

  2. I love this expression: "me made". Great colorful skirt!

  3. Most excellent! One day I will do Made Me day!
    I love the skirt, and I LOVE the transformation of one piece of jewellery into TWO! Hurrah! XXX

  4. Wonderful! You look so beautiful! I love your skirt and that fabulously blinged-up belt.
    I did Me Made May a few years ago, I don't know why I haven't repeated it. Looking forward to seeing you fabulous makes. xxx

  5. I find this more exciting than a catwalk.

  6. You are so a talented seamstress, Angie! Congrats you did a good job! I love the style and the colorful floral pattern and how you make a vintage look with it. Whenever I see you wearing a turban I will try it too. But always the scarf is slipping away or my ears are boring me. Perhaps you will show us some time how you fix it.
