Me-Made-May - Days 20, 21 and 23

I'll need to re-do Day 22, since I didn't take a picture.

Day 20 (Thursday): I cheated on Thursday. I wore a dress I'd made but it needed a tank top, and I wore a store-bought one. That's using one of my 3 Get-Out-Of-Jail-Free passes. I hope to avoid using the other two. This is Simplicity 3503.

Day 21 (Friday):
I had an early morning flight to Ottawa, but I was up early to hem these pants. Ah, pants. I'll do a whole review post on this one, but here's a sneak peek. These are McCalls 5817 (pants), worn with my worn-to-death white t-shirt (Simplicity 4076, view C.)

Day 23 (Sunday): It was beautiful and sunny, and tomorrow is a holiday. What could be better? Vintage McCalls 5885 - and I'm surprised I'm wearing it as much as I have (this is the 3rd wear since March, which is a success for a dress that has as many gathers around the hip as this one does.)

I'm nowhere being able to wear something I've made every day in a month but have enjoyed watching your me-made-may. :-)

I don't know if you'd be interested in this or not, but a friend in Toronto just called to let me know the Textile Museum of Canada is having a Yardage Sale today & tomorrow - vintage fabrics, etc and apparently they only do this every few years. I wish I was in T.O. this weekend !
