I have also signed up to participate in Me Made May this year. I thought that its no use making myself a lovely home-sewn wardrobe if I’m not gong to take pride in the things I have sewn.
In the spirit in which the event is intended I’m not going to be frantically be making something new all month. I’m going to get some of the things I have already made out of the wardrobe, and take pride in the fact I have made them. I will be posting pictures on my Instagram and my Twitter feeds. I wont be taking photos every day as I hate selfies but I will be posting things to keep myself going.
‘I, Mel Keable of MelMakesMelBakes, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’16. I endeavour to wear at least one home-made item or item with significant alterations made by me each day for the duration of May 2016’
Here are the offerings from day one and two!
A variation on Gertie’s “Pin Up Sweater” (to be blogged later this week) and a panelled half circle skirt.
The finished Portrait Blouse (Quest for a cotton Blouse – part 1 and 2) and a simple pencil skirt.
