I spent some time last weekend sorting out and photographing outfits which led to the realisation that I need to knit up the cardigan quantities of green yarn which I have stashed, and I could also do with a pink t-shirt! Photographing things in advance saves the hassle of doing daily photos, which I find makes for an easier life.
So, without further ado, here is my round up of the first week for this year's Me Made May challenge.
Monday was a bank holiday and therefore was freezing cold! I wore my Monochrome Breton jumper with some black leggings (although the photo shows a skirt - I can't put trousers on Myrtle unfortunately).
On Tuesday I wore a dress which I made during MMM 2016, and an rtw cardigan. I have these in several colours and they will probably feature a few times this month. They're very useful with summer dresses and are from Woolovers, although they don't seem to have them on their website now.

On Thursday I wore a lime green By Hand London Elisalex dress and rtw cropped cardigan from Fever - again, not on their website now.

On Friday I wore my green birds dress with an rtw cardigan

Saturday's choice was my tape measures dress and rtw cardigan from H&M. A woman came up to me in the petrol station as I was going to pay and told me she loved my dress - it's lovely to get a compliment like that, I was smiling all the way home!
And today I'm wearing my red roses dress and an rtw cardigan by Banned.
I hope to spend a large part of tomorrow sewing because I haven't taken the cover off my machine yet this month! Actually this year... There has been progress on the knitting front though, so that's good.
