Hello readers! I hope you have been enjoying yourselves lately. It's been a very chilly May so far - winter is so close! So it has made for some very interesting outfits lately. Sometimes I forget to wear tights when it's cold and sometimes it's too warm for a coat and I have to carry the darn thing around. The other day I completely forgot to check the temperature in the morning and walked out dressed for a 20 degree day and it never went above 16! By the time I had to go home it was below 11 and so I resorted to wearing my wellington boots home with my stinky gym socks to give me some small about of warmth!
The things you do for fashion!
Anyway, so here's how Me Made May has been going so far...
How have you been? Its been a while, but we have no one to thank for that except but my naughty little modem who decided to conk out last week leaving me internet-less until yesterday!
I have been sewing quite a few little projects in the mean time, but I can now finally share with you the blouse and pinafore outfit that I have dubbed Peggy, in honour of the return of Mad Men for the year!
Once I had finished and popped on this outfit, it felt like something the smart and career minded Peggy would wear. I just missed the deadline for the Mad Men sew along so I never got to submit it, but I guess sometimes my whole blog is just one big Mad Men sew along anyway!
And so I present to you now for your perusal - the Peggy Pinny!
I feel like I've been
neglecting this poor little blog of mine and most of all my sewing machine! I'm
so flipping exhausted when I get home that I just need to have a little sit
down like a Nanna before starting dinner.
It's all totally self-inflicted,
you see. I had this marvellous idea (not really) to go to the gym after work
each day, and then come home and make dinner. But work being the way it is,
means I finish later than intended, go to the gym and end up catching the all slow
And then I keep
picking the most complicated things to make for dinner when really my dear boy
is just happy with having chicken wings and rice! Bless him.
And then there's the
pile of laundry that's sat un-ironed for the past 4 weeks! Oh yes 4 weeks. We
keep picking things out every morning to iron and wear and it gets
progressively smaller, and then a new load of washing is done and we start the merry-go-round
