It was a close call but I actually managed to wear st least one thing I’d made everyday during May😃 I even managed to get a pic of them all & post on Instagram (unfortunately I didn’t save them to include here so this post is very wordy!)
So I’ll just share the numbers instead:- 13 tops, 7 dresses, 6 waistcoats, 5 skirts, 2 jackets, 1 pair of trousers & a bag!!
This round up have really highlights what I though was wrong with my me made wardrobe….it’s very top heavy!
I love pencil skirts & they are straightforward to make so why have I got only 3 me made ones???
I regularly wear trousers but lounge pants are the only ones I’ve made.
I wouldn’t say I was a dress wearer but there were more than I expected in my list. Some of these had been made for particular occasions and had been hiding in my wardrobe since so it was good to bring them out.
The challenge has really confirmed that I sew erratically, not really thinking about co-ordinating with the rest of my wardrobe.
So how will this effect my future sewing. Well I’m already thinking that by next May I want to have more of a capsule wardrobe. Pieces that work together in a variety of ways.
Not sure the 3 tops I’ve just made & the dress I’ve cut out are working towards that yet but, oh well another 10 months of sewing to work on it😃
