Hello All! 👋😁 I’m back! I had a lovely week off work during which I got a lot of “work” done!
I signed up for #MMMay18 this year and now that it is pretty much over I thought I’d give you my version. The last time I signed up for #MMMay15, I took frantic photos every day of my me-made garments. This #MMMay18, I decided to not take photos every day, but to learn what I had in my closet and what I should make. Are my sewing plans on track?
I did #MMMay15 around the same time I started my RTW fast. For three years I have only purchased things that I can’t sew – like footwear, undergarments, socks, knitted things …
When I analyzed my wardrobe this #MMMay18 I found at least 60 me-made items. You’ve seen them all here before. You don’t have to see them all again!
Instead, I wanted to analyze what’s needed … I took everything me-made out of my closet and tossed it on the bed. (The cats loved it! 🐈🐈)
JACKETS AND CARDIGANS? Looks like I didn’t include one or two here.
PANTS/TROUSERS AND SKIRTS? Lots to wear with my tops.
I bagged up the few pieces I don’t wear anymore and from all this decided that I seriously don’t have any me-made casual clothes – tops yes, but sweatshirts, shorts, joggers, yoga pants or cargo pants … no. Another pair of jeans would be nice too, as I only have one me-made pair. Maybe some solid coloured tees to go with my new casual clothes?
I would also love to make a couple of jackets or light coats too. I have a me-made heavy winter coat and a light denim style jacket, but something in between, for the spring/fall months would be nice.
STASH BUSTING WITH THIS PROJECT? I don’t know if donations count (hopefully they do!) but I used to have 134.5 metres and now I’m down to 132 metres – and it’s been inventoried!
