Apologies in advance for this big list but I thought it would be useful for me to list what I did and didn't wear, so feel free to skip this part if it's a bit long!
Pink Tiny pocket tank - unblogged (2x)
'Lush life' tiny pocket tank (2x)
Pink Sorbetto (1x)
Green Sorbetto (1x)
New (Made in May) Scout tee - unblogged (1x)
'Sherbet' scout tee (1x)
'Sailing, I am sailing' scout tee (1x)
Bird kimono tee (5x)
Pink plantain - unblogged (2x)
White Banksia (2x)
'Wildwood flower' Colette meringue skirt (1x)
New (Made in May) Purple knit pencil skirt - unblogged (1x) I would have worn this more if it hadn't stretched so much. It's currently sitting waiting to get some width cut off the waistband & restitched.
'Not such a disaster after all' tiny pocket tank maxi dress (2x)
New (Made in May) Teal plantain dress - unblogged (1x)
Me-makes I didn't wear -
Autumn colours circle skirt - I don't have any tops that go with this right now, plus the waistband is a bit snug.
Teal McCall's 2401 dress & beige McCall's dress (unblogged) - both are winter dresses for wearing with tights.
Liberty pyjama shorts (unbloggged) - not warm enough for them. STOP PRESS - summer is here and I'm pleased to say these have suddenly been getting lots of wear!
Quite a few me-mades have gone to the charity shop in the past year so it's not surprising there aren't many I didn't wear. Definitely a RPO - repeat pattern offender - but I'm not ashamed of that! The colder May weather has once again made me realise I need to make some trousers. Maybe this will be the year of the trousers?! Taking part in MMMay this year has made me realise just how often I wear the clothes I've made. That gave my sewing confidence a nice boost and spurred me on to make 3 new items in May (highlighted above in bold and hopefully to be blogged about in the future!). Asides from that I've got no big realisations from this year, just confidence and determination to continue sewing my own clothes, and confirmation of my love for bright colours.
I've absolutely loved taking part again this year, seeing everyone else's makes and being part of this amazing on-line, and real-life, sewing community. Did you take part? Did it lead to any big sewing realisations?! or change/reaffirm your sewing plans? Thanks Zoe for being our organiser extrordinaire for another fun and inspiring year of Me Made May!
