Me-Made-May 2015, Days 21-25

Hello everyone! 

Today is the second to last installment of my Me-Made-May documentation photos! This month has been a lot of fun, but...*whispers guiltily*...I bought a new ready to wear top last week and am really looking forward to wearing it with my jeans! 

Day 21: Sewaholic Belcarra (3) 
A week of repeats I'm afraid! This is my third version of the Belcarra, worn to my final exam of the year (woop). 

Day 22: Sewaholic Renfrew Dress
Now I promise I did wear this on Day 22, when I was still at uni, but the photo was taken a couple of days later when I got home, as I was quite busy and never got round to it at the time of wearing! Sorry about that. This was worn out to lunch with a couple of friends and then to hang around packing up my room. 

A familiar outfit by now I know, but so comfy and, I think, quite flattering. This was worn to travel back from uni and then to do some gardening with my dad which was nice. 

Day 24: Sewaholic Belcarra (1) 
One of my favourite outfits of the month! I love the Belcarra, since making my first it has become a real wardrobe staple. As you can see, I am not in my room - I spent the day at my boyfriends where we had planned to watch Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, but realising the DVD was missing watched the Extras disk instead...don't, it is boring! 

Day 25: Sewaholic Becarra (2) 
I know, three Belcarras in a week is quite a few, but at least I know what I like! I spent today at a Forties Weekend at the East Lancashire Railway near Manchester, a preserved line which often holds special events. I had planned to dress the part but what with exam revision and travelling back and forth from uni I never quite got round to making anything appropriate. Still, I had a fantastic day, got to travel behind some gorgeous steam engines and picked up another vintage pattern for a skirt, blouse and waistcoat from 1963! 

So, there we have it! I hope you all have a fantastic week everybody and that your Me-Made-May challenge (if you are taking part) is going well. 

Thanks for reading,
