Around the blogsphere Me Made May round ups are starting to take place so I thought it was time for my first. My pledge was to wear something made by me for five days a week, to make two new items and repair at least one. I have just finished a new project but you will need to wait until the middle of the week for more on it. Before I start with my items, have you seen the Flickr group yet? SO MANY people and SO MANY amazing outfits. It is taking up a lot of my time working through the photos but I just can't help myself!
I wore one of my Ginger skirts. I love this pattern, it is so comfortable and really flattering. I don't normally like high waisted skits or trousers but this one changed my mind. Although as you can see from the photo I am unlikely to show off the waistband (some kind of weird hangup about my stomach that I am working on!) I'm not sure what the fabric is, it is a mix. The pink is definitely elastic but what the purple is, I have no idea! I made it with flat felled seams.
My first Alma. I generally make a toile of everything I wear because something is normally slightly off. But not so with the Alma and this has become a wearable toile and a staple in my wardrobe. The fabric is left over from a dress I made a few years ago but couldn't wear (I didn't really know what I was doing then!). The zip isn't right but it is under my arm so no one can tell! There is photographic evidence of me in this but the photo is awful so you'll have to make do with seeing it on the hanger!
The theme for this Friday was water. I had the perfect plan of going to the canal near work and persuading a colleague to take a photo and then I realised I had the day off. So my Mathilde came to the rescue. Submarines and seaweed was the closest I was going to get!
If you're taking part, how are you getting on?
