It’s the 22nd of May and that means the start of my third wardrobe capsule for this year’s Me-Made-May. For MMMay19 I created three wardrobe capsules following the guidelines of the 10 x 10 style challenge.
Starting a new one also means I finished my second wardrobe capsule. You can read below how it went and how my third wardrobe capsule looks.
I did it again!
Yes! I managed to dress 10 days with 10 different outfits using 10 garments. I called it my ‘Something Red’ capsule and I interpreted red with major liberty!
- Day 1: 3
- Day 2: 5 + 8
- Day 3: 7
- Day 4: 2 + 10
- Day 5: 1 + 3
- Day 6: 4 + 5 + 9
- Day 7: 7 + 9
- Day 8: 1 + 2
- Day 9 : 6 + 9
- Day 10: 6
I documented every outfit with a photo on Instagram. Below you see a capture of my grid and I love the ‘Something Red’ vibe it radiates. My overview starts with Day 1 in the right-under corner.
How did I feel about the red wardrobe capsule?
First of all, I’m not particularly fond of the colour red. It’s not a colour that I gravitate to. So I’m rather proud of myself that I could make this work and enjoyed doing it. I managed to dress with something red 10 days in a row and my dressing was fit for all the occasions of my life. Teaching, dinner with friends, lazy day, school meeting… Even the chilly weather could be attacked by wearing red tights and my cardigan. By the way, this red cardigan is the winner of this capsule. I wore it 3 times!
There were several! The African Wax Brooklyn skirt paired with the colour blocked Seafarer top is absolutely a winner. I also enjoyed the pairing of the same skirt with the red striped Ali sweatshirt. I’m sure I will wear these combos again!
My third capsule: Everything goes!
For my third capsule, I wanted it to be 100% me-made. So I couldn’t work around one colour, although blue seems to be a little dominant. I call it the ‘Everything goes with everything’ capsule.
- n°7 Vanlose trousers – How to do Fashion
- Julia sweater – Compagnie M.
- Wanted Tee – Vanessa Pouzet
- Faux Wrap skirt – Knipmode
- Kingfisher top – The Sewing Revival
- Hollyburn Skirt – Sewaholic
- Juniper Cardigan – Jennifer Lauren Handmade
- n°7 Vanlose top – How to do Fashion
- Snowball high neck dress – Waffle Patterns
- Seafarer top – Sew Much Ado
Bonus: I give myself permission to change any of these garments with a freshly new made one within the next 10 days!
On the first day of my ‘Everything goes’ capsule, I wear my monochrome Seafarer top with my blue Faux wrap skirt. Who says you can’t combine black and blue?
How is your Me-Made-May 2019 going?

What a great pairing of your wardrobe items…that wax print skirt has me craving a few yds for a skirt too. That faux wrap skirt looks wonderful on you too. I do not make skirts, but hey, now I just might. Love the red.
Thanks for stopping by and reading! I’m not someone who tries to convince other people to wear clothes they normally don’t wear but wax print skirts (and other garments) are super fun to sew and to wear. I feel honoured that I could inspire you because I find you a very talented sewist and woman! Love Wis xxx
I love your anything goes capsule! I like how you are having so much fun with MMMay!
Thanks for your compliments, Angie! I had indeed a lot of fun with this years edition of MMMAy. Wis xx
