It’s the 12th of May today, which means that I finished my first 10 x 10 style challenge for Me-Made-May 2019. You remember that for this years Me-Made-May I levelled up my pledge a little. Instead of picking a random me-made garment every morning, I created three wardrobe capsules.
Below, you can read how it went and how my second wardrobe capsule looks.
Did I succeed in my first wardrobe capsule?
I did! I managed to dress 10 days in 10 outfits that were combinations of the 10 items I selected for my Green & Black capsule.
- Day 1: 2 + 4
- Day 2: 5 + 7 + 10
- Day 3: 3
- Day 4: 5 + 6 + 9
- Day 5: 7 + 9
- Day 6: 8
- Day 7: 3 + 1
- Day 8: 6 + 5
- Day 9: 1 + 4
- Day 10: 8 + 9 (not photograped)
I documented my outfit every day with a photo on Instagram. This is a capture of my grid so Day 1 is in the right under corner.
How did I feel about it?
First of all, I am a little proud of myself that I made it and at the end of the ride I enjoyed it. There was some unusual chilly weather some days and that annoyed me a little. Without my pledge, I would have worn something else these days. Here the black V-neck pullover came to the rescue. I wore this and the black T-shirt for three days. So that makes them the winners of this capsule.
My striped Nanöo top was only combinable with the grey skirt so that makes it not a very good capsule member.
Although I’ve worn the greenish box pleat skirt a zillion times before, I’ve never combined it with black tops before. I’m sure I will wear this combo again.
This challenge also brought back my love for the grey Seamwork Brooklyn skirt made out of a curtain sample. The combo with the very old RTW rib cord turtleneck is also new and a winner.
My second capsule: Something red 💃🏻💃🏻
So it is time to compose my second capsule. I dug in my closet once more and although it is evident to select separates—as they are easier to mix and match—I selected three dresses. It turned out an eclectic selection again, but that is my wardrobe.
Ten garments with something red in it. This capsule is 90% Me-Made. I’m glad I could increase this percentage, the Black & Green capsule was 60%. For the third capsule, I’m going for 100%
- Ali Sweatshirt – Sew DIY
- Seamwork Brooklyn skirt
- Telma dress – Vintage en retro naaipatronen
- SJ-Tee – Papercut
- Julia Sweater – Compagnie M.
- Moneta dress

- Flared skirt – Allemaal Rokjes

On the first day of my Something Red capsule, I wear my Telma Dress. I sewed it in 2016!
