Week 4 || Me-Made June 2011

Heading Into the Home Stretch!

Monday, June 20: Third Time's A Charm

This chic little number is fantastic! I love that it's reversible, that it packs down to practically nothing, and that it's easy to dress up or down. This is the third time I've made this dress, so I really like it! This time, I used Sandra Betzina's method and lined only the skirt so I wouldn't have to hem it. I'll do just about ANYTHING to get out of hemming!
  • LB(rown)D travel dress: M6069
  • Necklace: Made by me (I bled for this little piece of stained glass!)
  • Jean Jacket: Calvin Klein

Tuesday, June 21: Going In Circles

It was 83º here today, so I thought I wear a summer dress. I made this knit dress when I started sewing a few years ago. It gets a TON of wear in the warmer months and the circles hide a multitude of sins. What's not to love?

  • Dress: S3503
  • Necklace & Bracelet: Made by me
  • Cardi: Refashioned

Wednesday, June 22: Solid Gold

The weather turned warm-ish (hence the wrap), so it's time to rock my gold top! I bought the sky-high wedges and white pants last weekend, and couldn't resist wearing them ASAP. I can't believe I made it through an entire day without getting something on these pants! Last time I wore white pants, they made it two hours before I spilled coffee on them. I thought I was cursed.
  • Top: NL6356
  • Necklace/pants/shoes: NY&Co.
  • Cuff: Made by Me
  • Pashmina: Ebay

Thursday, June 23: Channeling Chanel

Cold and rainy again today, so it was a great opportunity to wear my Chanel jacket. It was my greatest sewing achievement this year. I feel like I'm a grown-up when I wear this, since it so fancy!
  • Chanel jacket: V7975
  • Necklace, Pants and Tank Top: NY&Co.
  • Shoes: Thrifted (Patent Crocodile! Yay!)

Friday, June 24: Red Hot

This swing cardi is getting a lot of wear these days. The weather is still...variable here in June, so I needed something to keep me warm. I rarely wear this tank, so it was fun to break it out. I really like the red and brown combination!
  • Swing Cardi: M5241
  • Tank: Max Studio (thrifted)
  • Necklace: NY&Co.
I'm still knitting that sweater I told you about last week. Lots of frogging happening, so it's slower going than I thought it would be. I've also completed a dress or three and a skirt that I'm looking forward to showing soon as the weather gets warm enough to actually wear them! Around these parts, it's often been said that "Summer doesn't start until July 5." I hope that's true. This non-summery weather is starting to get to me. :(


    1. You've got a lot of depth in your self-sewn wardrobe. It all looks so nice and so professional too.

    2. Oh, I used that same pattern for my Chanel-style jacket! Snap!
      Gorgeous outfits, as usual. And looking good for summer, Oh, and ps, thanks for the rain! Much appreciated!
