Me Made September starts today and I admire anyone who can commit and participate in it everyday. While I probably do wear something that I have made everyday, especially in the summer, taking and posting photos each day for 30 days? Well it's just not going to happen.
However I recently spent a long weekend in Singapore as my husband was working over there and as I was packing my bags with stuff I'd made decided I would do a mini Me Made Singapore Weekend.
Friday afternoon travelling
Not a lot made here, just the top version of Vogue 1250 . Singapore is only a 3.5 hr flight so I ignored all the conventional advice to not wear jeans or heels!
Friday night bar hopping
My new Vena Cava Vogue 1258 dress. As predicted I can't keep my hands out of the pockets, consider me a pocket convert!
Burda 05/2011 - 104 with obi belt. Blog post to follow!
This black silk dress was perfect for shopping on a hot day (although I didn't find it as hot as Hong Kong is at the moment). I had to (yes, genuinely had to!) go to Arab Street which is filled with fabric shops - more on that another day....
Saturday afternoon poolside
McCalls 6069, this makes a perfect beach/pool dress. Actually I confess this photo is from Sunday afternoon as I realised looking at the photos that I had the dress on backwards on Saturday - thought the front was lower than I remembered!
Saturday night dinner
Vogue 1120 DKNY blue silk dress
Admittedly we only got around to taking photos after dinner by which time both model and photographer were tired and had got through a fair bit of wine so these are not the greatest pictures!
I wore this all day, except for another spell by the pool - Vogue 1250 LBD
