Me Made May 14 is officially over for another year. Didn’t it go past so fast? I came unstuck on the home stretch and haven’t got photos for days 22 and 24 but did wear handmade on those days. I’ve managed to exceed my original goal to wear 5 home sewn garments a week and ended up wearing handmade every day in May!
Here’s a run down of what I wore during the last two weeks. The sun stayed out and I was able to get in a few more dresses and wear more summer clothes. Most garments are pre-blog with the exception of the Vogue 9668 dress, Renfrew and Plantain tops and Sewing Bee skirt. You’ll notice I have a soft spot for Liberty prints. The Port Elizabeth top is a brilliant stash buster and you can download the free pdf pattern from Burda here.
I’m glad I got to wear my New Look 6494 fuchsia linen skirt. It’s very special as it’s the first handmade garment I ever made. Yup I still wear it. The skirt is a bit faded but the seams are still holding up. I made it at a sewing class and we spent a whole term making the one skirt. It doesn’t have a zip and it’s fastened with a draw string. Do you still wear your first ever make?
I’ll post more musings on Me May May 14 in another post. Happy Sunday everyone.
