Me-Made-May 2014 – Roundup – Part One

It’s day twelve of Me-Made-May 2014 and so far I’ve upheld my pledge to wear at least one me-made garment every day this month. I’ve been posting my pics daily in the #MMMay14 page under ‘Makes’ in my header menu bar and also on the #MMMay14 Pinterest page.

I’m glad I’m doing this. I love to see other people’s makes on Pinterest and it’s a good way for me to find out what I need to make more of and looking at the photos forces me to see what suits me and what doesn’t.

After a really warm April, it’s turned chilly again and it’s been a challenge to find trans-seasonal pieces in my me-made wardrobe. I usually layer up tees and blouses with cardigans or jumpers and jeans. I can see I need to make more layering pieces such as light jackets and cardigans.

May 1st was a national holiday in Germany and we were invited for a bbq with friends so I wore my latest Ralph Pink jumpsuit in Liberty tana lawn cotton. I’ll blog about the making of this soon.

May 6th was my birthday so I marked the occasion by wearing my latest dress (un-blogged) in Italian cotton and cotton/silk. It was a bit cool so I wore it tunic style over jeans. The design is by Ely Kishimoto and the pattern was in Cut Magazine. I love this dress and will blog my review of it soon.

Are you joining in Me-Made-May 2014? How are you getting on? Are you discovering gaps in your me-made-wardrobe?

#MMMay14 Me-Made-May 2014 Challenge!

I’m in! I pledge to wear an item of me-made clothing everyday of May 2014.

I hope I can keep this up! At least it’ll give me a chance to air the me-made things I don’t have time to blog about.

So here goes.

Day One.

Sorry it’s a bit dark! We’ve been out and I almost forgot to get a pic – not a great start for day one!

What did you wear today?

UPDATE: I’ve created a new page under ‘Makes’ in the menu at the top of the screen. I’ll be posting my daily #MMM14 pics in there.
