The better weather in May certainly opens up my wardrobe for Me Made May 2014.
Days 11-13. From left to right, Megan Nielsen Briar (this version not blogged) with Grains de Couture Nautique skirt (yet to be blogged, get on with it lady), Tova in Martha Negley feathers, Megan Nielsen Darling Ranges Dress (one of my favourites).Grains de Couture Maxi Opale skirt as before, Simplicity 6329 vintage dress in Denyse Schmidt fabric, a partially successful floaty vest style top from Grains de Couture.
Days 18-20: Wiksten tank with a few tweaks (not blogged), Deer and Doe Bleuet in Melody Miller fabric, Jim jams made last summer for Fat Quarterly retreat classes.
This week I realised that I need to go through my existing patterns more and make the tweaks and changes and new hacks and combinations. I've just ordered a Fashionary to organise my clothes making a little better. I also realised that test garments are a total pain in the backside but they are necessary- you can rarely expect the first time to be perfect. I have made a tester cami and shorty knicks for the Gertie slip sew along, and I was so glad I did! Pics coming soon- some already on IG (@verykerryberry) My wardrobe is growing, this time next year, I hope to have crossed over further to a world of me-made.
