I mentioned a few blog posts back that I was participating in Me Made May this year. It has been more fun than I anticipated watching people’s outfits pop up on Instagram and in the flickr group! I love that there are so many people wearing self-sewn (and knitted and crocheted) garments. Just wonderful! Here are my outfits for the first two weeks of May.
My challenge was to wear me-made to work as well as casually. This hasn’t actually proved to be a problem at all.
Actually, for many of these days, all of my outer garments are me-made. My shoes, socks, stocking and underwear aren’t made by me, but most other things are. Including scarves and bags!
So overall, me made May really has started off beautifully. Getting a photo taken each day is the biggest challenge, especially now that the days are shorter and there isn’t much light for mirror selfies. My work colleagues and my kids have been doing the photography honours most of the time.
Further information on any of these outfits is on the flickr photos. I encourage you to check out the flickr group, and see how creative people are with their sewing and their daily outfits.
