When Me-Made-May happened last year, I was just getting into making clothes and thought for sure by this Me-Made-May I’d be all set!
But I’m not, really, I fell into the classic novice crafter error of over-committing on sewn Christmas presents, and then friends had birthdays and babies and I fell down the wedding sewing rabbit hole (bunting and table cloths, no dresses).
Long story short, I haven’t sewn anything for myself in well over six months, and my total home made wardrobe thus far consists of two dresses, a skirt and a top (I’ve also made a dress and a top that are not wearable.) I don’t love one of the dresses or the skirt, but I plan to do a dye job and maybe a little nip and tuck… I’ll report back on this.
With just over six weeks to the wedding, I’m trying to be realistic that I won’t be making any beautiful (or otherwise!) dresses this month, much as I might want to.
But! The challenge is meant to be, well, a challenge and so despite this paltry collection of outfits (all pictured here!), I have signed up. My personal pledge is to wear a home made garment three times a week.
I’ll be instagramming my wears (@annabelvita) and will post a round up of all the different outfits at the end of the month.
Happy May, one and all!
