Me-Made-May'13 Day 1-6

It's time for me to start documenting MMM'13, a challenge to wear self-stitched garments or anything handmade during the whole moth of May.

Day 1
On Wednesday 1st, I wore My pink shorts. I, my husband and little Eduardo went out to the new garden here in our area and continue walked around in our small city, then we went for lunch at Chinese restaurant nearby.

Day 2
On Thursday 2nd, I wore My Shift Dress. We went for lunch in our friend restaurant (O Santos Comida Portuguesa) here in our city. I took a picture in the main square near the place where we had lunch.

Day 3
On Friday 3rd, I wore shop-made outfit but the bag is me-made. Same story as the day before, we went for lunch at O Santos Comida Portuguesa again.
As the Friday theme is water, I decided to take a photo near the river on the way back home but unluckily the rain is coming on the time when we took a photo. Well, I got double water:)
Here is the bag link, The G Bag

Day 4
On Saturday 4th, I wore my old dress. Sorry that I didn't blogged it, a very simple self-drafted  sleeveless dress with front and back gathered skirt. I made this dress just after I gave a birth to my son Eduardo.
We went to shopping at the shopping area in Macau ( New Yaohan and around Leal Senado). I also went to fabric store and bought some more fabrics for my stash.
I took a photo in front of Casino Lisboa and Whynn Casino, sorry for bad quality photo. It was very ugly day, fog and little rain.

Day 5
On Sunday 5th, not so much story to tell about that day. We stay at home during the whole afternoon cleaned up our storage room. Then we went to the supermarket nearby in the end of the day.
I wore Cinnamon Dress, its very airy tiered mini dress based on Burdastyle pattern.
I took a picture on the side of parking near our house.

Day 6
On Monday 6th, I spent the whole morning working on men's shirt for my husband. I'll post on the blog as soon as I've done it.
For MMM'13 day 6, I wore A-Line Dress based on Burdastyle pattern. My husband picked us for lunch and we went to one of the restaurant here in our small city.

That's all my MMM'13 recap for day 1-6, I also posted all my MMM'13 photos on MMM'13 Flickr Set. Or if you are interested to see all the MMM'13 groups photos, check out MMM'13 Groups photos on Flickr.
