I have never officially participated in Me Made May, a challenge revived every year by So Zo at http://sozowhatdoyouknow.blogspot.co.uk/2014/04/me-made-may14-sign-up-here.html\
This year I am. I have always enjoyed seeing what makes other sewers actually wear each day, and I look forward to learning that lesson about myself. I think this challenge be a great exercise to find out just what I do, and do NOT wear, of the clothes I make. Making something fabulous that hangs in my closet, unworn, does not make be feel good about sewing. I want to make what I can use, and then use it. As for the daily photo diary..... I don't take the most glamorous shots (ok DH took this, it was the only non blurry one) but at least I can capture what I wear, and perhaps learn, that some things work together and some things don't, like only a picture can show you.
Today's outfit is Vogue top 8451 made in May 2009
and my TNT trousers, adapted from V8774 made April 2014
I had to look up when I made the top, as in my mind, it was like a year or two ago. I wear it probably every other month or so. I was shocked to see that I made it 5 years ago. It is still in perfect shape, no pilling, no stretching out. This was definitely a good make.
These are the type of lessons I want to learn. So that I can repeat my successes, and stop making things that are easy, or popular, and yet that I do not wear.
I hope that while I learn, you at least are somewhat entertained, if only by my lame attempts at photography! And, I look forward to seeing what YOU are wearing.
and if you can't sew
Enjoy doing what you can do!
