It’s over and I actually did it, I wore two handmade items (and some times more) for each day of May. I thought two would be a challenge (I did one item last year) and some days it was, some days I did cheat little by including my watson bra as one item (technically it is, but you know what I mean). The hardest thing was remembering to document every day and I did slack a little on that as you can see if you count all the photos (only 22…..opps), but….to be fair I did go camping in the middle and was trying to be phone free!!!
If you were participating in Me Me May ’15 how was for you? Did you complete your pledge? And if you were just observing did you get inspired? I personally loved checking Instagram everyday to see what fab creations were popping up!!
Row 4, BHL Victoria blazer with Jamie jeans and Sew u home stretch Breton top, Vogue 9175 culottes jumpsuit, Simplicity 1696 top with new look 6104 trousers
Row 5, Watson bra with dress, Jamie jeans with simplicity 1366, new look 6145 in chambray (and watson bra!),
Row 6, New look 6048 & Simplicity 2451 hack dress in Liberty print , Republique du chiffon robe eve with Nettie underneath. And a new Stylearc Carly jumpsuit in blue slinky microfibre!!
Ok so the conclusion is that I have pretty decent handmade wardrobe and most items are in quite heavy rotation, I probably need to try not wearing jeans so much in my life., and I seem to have a thing for yellow shoes!!
I’m missing some decent skirts and maybe a few more t-shirts would be good, but apart from those I’m quite happy, of course I have sewing plans…always have sewing plans, next up is a few summer dresses and a pair of culottes !!!!
How about you what next on your sewing list??
