And here we are at the end of the second week of Me-Made-Me 2014, halfway through. As per my pledge, I am wearing at least one garment that I’ve made, refashioned or embellished each day of this month. You can see the first week here. I continue to have trouble because of a glaring lack of me-made clothing for in-between weather, as we’ve been having. Also we never know what the weather will be like from day to day (or hour to hour, really). Yesterday, for example, was incredibly sunny and warm in the morning and then rainy, windy and cool with black clouds covering the sky. It makes for a difficult time when getting dressed in the morning!

- Layered reverse appliqué t-shirts with a twist on the Alabama Chanin style
That day I also met the wonderful ladies behind the Riciclattoli books, Valentina Cavalli and Pucci Zagari at a presentation of the book Riciclattoli Tutto l’Anno* in Naples. (The book is full of adorable toys to make with kids using upcycled materials.) Check out Valentina’s shirt. It’s basically a white t-shirt with fabric stitched on like a fake vest. Awesome! I think I’m going to have to be copying the idea one of these days…

Today’s Friday theme is “Too Pretty to Wear Pants.” I took this as meaning “so pretty that you should wear a skirt or dress” and, taking it one step further, my skirt was made from an old pair of pants, but afterwards it occurred to me that the theme was suggested by a gal from England, where the word “pants” refers to underwear. I don’t think I’m quite that pretty and I confirm that I am indeed wearing underwear today. (But speaking of which, I totally forgot to mention that most of the days last week I was also wearing me-made cloth pads.)
