This is so fun, being part of this Challenge! But can I do it?
I have no time to speed sew up some outfits like a “Road Runner” to fill up my month of May. But I do want to take a serious inventory during this Challenge – what is really in my closet?
Quite often you open the door and say there is nothing to wear. I thought I would try Me-Made-May’14 and see what’s really in my closet and what I need (to sew) to fill in the gaps! Do I have 31 outfits? That’s my Challenge. So every weekend you will hear from me, whether I made it through the week or whether I have added an item of clothing to my never-ending list of things-to-sew! (and I so cherish that list!) 😀
Thursday, May 1 – it was 23 degrees Celsius today (73 F). Time to pull out the summer dresses. Don’t have the faintest idea when I sewed this up, which pattern I used nor what it is made of, but it is very flow-y and comfortable! And it doesn’t need ironing, probably a polyester of some sort, not a knit.
May 2 – Friday casual (jeans) day at work. Jeans and a top. I haven’t made myself a pair of jeans yet, maybe someday. I do want too. After all, I have black jeans fabric and the pattern for them – just need the time! (On the list) I made the top from a polyester knit.
Saturday, May 3 and Sunday, May 4 – the usual Mom uniform. T-shirts and yoga pants, comfortable and hard working! Apparently all my T-shirts are store bought and there are a lot of them! When they wear out I will have to sew some more up. (On the list for years in the future!). I do have quite a few hand made yoga pants so I have that covered. These are my favourite!
I made it through the first week (ya, alright, it was a short one!) with one item on my list – sew Jeans!
