The end of Me Made May 2018

That’s it for another year! My family, and probably my non-sewing followers on Instagram, are no doubt breathing a big sigh of relief!  For the sake of consistency I’ll start this post by showing what I wore for the last week and a bit of May. Continue reading

Me Made May 2018

Is it May already? Time for Me Made May 2018. I actually love this challenge but my family hate it! All those photos I make them take! However, since last year I have been given a tripod with a phone mount, and I have a phone that takes pictures when I say ‘cheese’!

Me Made May 2017 week 2

Last week I promised myself that I was going to incorporate more dresses into my days and I just about managed it. I don’t know why but I always feel overdressed when I wear a dress so I usually stick to separates. Sometimes it’s good to come out of your comfort zone.

The end of MMM15 and a new frock

Success! I’m so happy I completed Me Made May. I’m also quite pleased that it’s over and done with! I’ve enjoyed wearing my own clothes but the weather has been so awful & cold I’ve not always been able to wear the most appropriate items. My challenge was to wear everything I’ve made at some point so my summer makes did end up with lots of layers over the top, which defeated the object somehow. Continue reading
