We are halfway through Me-Made-May’17 so it’s time for some observations. It’s the second year I’m participating, therefore I extended my pledge. Besides wearing one me-made garment every day I also endeavor to wear at least 10 me-made garments I didn’t wear last year. I also want to wear 31 different outfits. Did I succeed so far?
So far I wore 7 new me-made garments thus I am on track. Except for the Moneta dress, these were all sewed last Summer. The Ariadne Tunic is, in fact, an old make but I did not wear it last May. I sewed it in 2014. The back is perfect but there are some imperfections at the front so I don’t wear it often.
Paula pleat skirt — Maria Denmark // Amelia Dress — Green Bee Patterns // Hudson Pant — True Bias // Sureau dress — Deer&Doe // NewLook 6106 // Julia Sweater — Compagnie M. and Skirt from Allemaal rokjes // Odette dress — Blue Gingerdoll
Seven days I wore clothes that I also wore in last year’s me-made-may. I don’t consider that a bad thing. It means they still fit me and that I am happy to wear them.
- A LOT of prints! I definitely have to sew some solids.
- A variety of colours.
- No repeats, so far.
- An eclectic style.
- All the tops—execpt the Julia Sweater—are old rtw’s.
- Taking a picture of yourself every day is quite confronting. Also, there were a lot of grey days with bad light. A true damper on the party.
- I enjoy the challenge to search my wardrobe every day to look for a new me-made!
How is your me-made-may going?
