Day 2: Bow print shirred dress (based on this tutorial)
Day 7: Lace peplum top (blogged here) with primark maxi skirt
Day 8: Re-fashioned skirt (blogged here) with blouse from H&M
Day 9: Circle skirt (never blogged) with blouse from Mango.
Now you may notice, I got off to a slightly slow start, I think I almost failed my pledge without realising! I’m now properly into it though and really enjoying it. I love seeing all the inspiration on Flickr and Pinterest and what other people are making and wearing.
I’ve identified a couple of points about my Me-Made wardrobe so far:
1. I tend to make pieces with bold fabrics that are unique but, it makes it more difficult to mix and match different outfits for every day wear.
2. I wear a scarf every day, I have lots of hand knitted ones for the winter but in the summer revert to shop-bought ones. It would be really nice to have a handmade light scarf for spring/summer.
3. Whilst I sew lots of pretty dresses, they don’t tend to be suitable for work and are more for going out/weekends.
So these are my goals to look into for the weeks ahead and I’ll keep you updated how it goes!
How’s Me-Made-May going for you if you’re participating? Or are you feeling inspired to get sewing if you don’t already??
