MMMay16, days 19-25

Time for the fourth instalment of MeMadeMay, which is actually 7 days instead of 6 as there was a repeat on consecutive days (or perhaps a fail in terms of me-made, depending on your view). Almost all of these makes are unblogged; I really need to sort that out! I’m toying with the idea of vlogs instead of photos, in an effort to get some of my many unblogged makes out there in the world. Thoughts? Anyway, let’s get to it.

Me-Made-May ’16 and I

After watching from the wings for the last few years, I’ve finally signed up for my first Me-Made-May! Organised by Zoe of So, Zo… and Jen of Jennifer Lauren Vintage. My pledge?

I, Jen, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’16. I endeavour to wear one me-made item each day for the duration of May 2016.


Want to join in? Head over to Zoe’s blog for sign up details and more general information, including a Pinterest board and Flickr group you can join, and the #mmmay16 hashtag for Instagram etc.

Following an inventory of my wardrobe, it seems I’ve made 37 garments! Including 14 dresses. A decent collection. Sadly, 6 of these are no longer wearable, either because something ripped or came apart (and I couldn’t fix it!) so that leaves 31 ‘wearable’ garments. But, you know how it is, I don’t like all of them and several aren’t day-appropriate. I’d probably wear around 15 of them.

Now, Zoe explains that there shouldn’t be any panic-sewing so I shall certainly stick to the ‘rules’ but my April sewing might need to address my selection. That being said, my sewing plans already included another Sewaholic Granville shirt and a navy Colette Moneta dress.

Who else has signed up?!
