My first ever attempt at Me-Made-May is off to a good start! I’m going to be wearing everything I’ve ever made (that I still have) throughout this month and decide how I feel about each item. Before I started I was worried, what with May being a spring month and everything, that I would be unable to wear my knitted stuff as it would be too warm. No worries on that score. I’m now concerned that it’s going to be too cold to wear my summer tops!
My knitted tank top that I described here.
My Safari skirt that I love and adore. Definitely a keeper.
I felt ridiculous in this knitted top. I like the pattern but I made this far too short. The sleeves are too short as well. This was made 9 years ago and I’ve worn it twice (now). It’s taking up valuable space so it’s going to be unravelled and made into something else. That Rowan wool is too posh to chuck away.
My Pie-smuggling top. It’s OK but not really one to wear in public unless I can wear a coat over it. I’ll keep it for now..
Another hand knitted jumper. Has been washed and worn loads so another keeper. Collar’s a bit dodgy though.
A bit of a cop-out this one, but then I did say ‘refashioned’ in my pledge so it counts. I added the ribbon trim to a denim skirt but the trim has faded and the skirt is massive. Off to the charity shop with this.
Sorry about the mirror selfie – the family is getting bored of my photo taking! This is an unblogged freebie pattern. The pattern came in small, medium & large. It didn’t come with measurements so I went for the middle one. It’s too big (and no one can say I’m small) and boxy. It’s also too short, despite me adding length to it. Another one for the charity shop.
How are you getting on with Me-Made-May?
