Me-Made-May 2019, days 15 – 31

Better late than never, eh? May 15th: I was on a flight, so went for comfortable basics. Jeans, a tiny tank in Indian cotton and my green monster coat as I was flying to England and the weather can never be counted on. May 16th – 22nd: I did not record what I wore. May […]

Me-Made-May 2019, days 1 – 14

May 1st: A casual start, wearing a plaid cotton Archer shirt. I don’t love this, it doesn’t SPARK JOY, but it’s very comfortable and I wear it a lot. This shirt always makes me feel practical. May 2nd: I wore my new Roxanne shirt with some jeans and a cardigan. I later went out and […]

Me-Made-May 2019

‘I sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May 2019. I endeavour to wear me-made clothes  for five days each week during May 2019.’ It’s that time again, kids, Me-Made-May is upon us, and this year I am participating on a small scale. The last two times I have joined in, I became very frustrated but […]

Me Made May part three

Friday 23rd: No picture, no me-mades Saturday 24th: No picture, no me-mades Sunday 25th: No picture, but I did wear this guy (the floral one). Monday 26th: I was at home caring for a potential hospital patient. Wearing my polka dot Blank Canvas Tee and some ropey shorts. Tuesday 27th: No picture, but I was […]

Predictable me

Me Made May may not be over yet, but I’ve already learnt a lot about how I currently dress for my lifestyle. I will go into more detail about this in my much anticipated MMM finale post, but for now, lets rest assured that I am aware that most of my wearable handstitched garments come […]

Me Made May part two

Highly sporadic picture taking, that’s the name of my game. Sunday 11th: I can’t actually remember, and I didn’t take a photo. Uh oh. Monday 12th: Plaid Archer for college. Tuesday 13th: My mystery Scout and an unblogged jacket. Wednesday 14th: An unblogged 80s knit dress I made last summer. I’m planning on making another […]

Me Made May part one

Here’s my obligatory MMMay round up for the past ten days. Some of the pictures were really crap, so I haven’t used them. Instead you have links and some slightly less crap pictures. Thursday 1st: My first viscose knit Hemlock. Just working at home today, so nothing fancy. Friday 2nd: Red Moss skirt. Unblogged jacket. […]

All the M’s

In which I complete my first adult cardigan, and my second major adult knitting project. Granted, it is cropped with three-quarter sleeves, but it’s a cardigan no less. The pattern is Andi Satterlund’s Marion, and like Chuck, is an easy to understand pattern, and a relatively quick item to knit. I followed the pattern for […]

Me-Made Mess

Participating in Me-Made-May was a really great idea in my head. I love the thought and inspiration behind Me-Made-May. I’m a huge fan of Zoe’s blog and find myself nodding along in agreement when reading her valuable posts about sustainability and about making self-aware choices in consumerist habits. I thought that for one month I could discipline myself enough […]

Me-Made-May 2013: week four/five

It’s over! Here’s how my last week went (spoiler: it’s disappointing) Friday 24th: Nothing me-made was worn to work (apart from wearable muslin Betty knickers), but I did sleep in a me-made top. It’s a jersey kimono sleeve tee from Burda. It was the first t-shirt I ever made, and the neckline is quite  rubbish. […]

Me-Made-May 2013: week three

This week was hard. It’s been dire on all fronts. A fair few repeats and realisations, and very few photos. I wear the same outfit every day, I struggle to think outside my ‘jeans and a top’ box. I’m starting to accept that I need to make a sewing wardrobe plan and stick with it. […]

Me-Made-May 2013: week two

Wednesday 8th: Silken Scout Despite the stain, I still wear this from time to time. I’m concentrating more on what I wear and what I have made, and I think I need to lower the armholes a tiny bit on future Scouts. Thursday 9th:  Calvin Klien/Vogue blouse (unblogged) This blouse was made after this mess […]

Me-Made-May 2013: week one

As this is my first ever Me-Made-May, I thought I should make an effort document it and what I am learning about my me-mades. This first week has been okay, although it is a bit of an effort making the conscious decision to choose from a limited wardrobe selection. Honestly, I thought it would be […]
