Me-Made-June... Days 27, 28, 29 and 30

I spent the last four days of Me-Made-June on a course for my fellowship in rural Kent. Lots of quality time learning from cultural leaders and playing hide and seek. More importantly, a change of background for my MMJ photos...

I don't have the time or the internet connection to debrief on my experience of MMJ now, so I'll come back to this in another post. In the meantime, it'd be great to hear from you - how was MMJ for you, whether a participant or observer? What did you learn about your self-made wardrobe?

Ooh and thank you to everyone who has helped identify the mysterious pattern. Some fascinating historical clues and varied guesses as to a date - I'll keep digging. I paid $2 for it, which may not sound particularly exciting for American readers, but for a Brit that was pretty astounding...

  1. Score! I felt sure you wouldn't have paid crazy money, but two dollars - bargain-a-go-go.

  2. Something is going weird with your comments I think - I got sent to a page with the same text as didyoumakethat's comment the first time I clicked 'post comment'.

  3. Anyway, I was going to say I wasn't intending to take part in MMJ, but somehow did - although there is no photographic documentation, just a list in my diary. I learned I need to make myself some more clothes, though as there was an awful lot of repetition (and I wouldn't have got away with it without necklace/shoes counting for my me-made item some days).

  4. I just love that Loire Valley skirt, Tilly. The fabric, the flairiness, the drapiness, it's just so pretty. An absolute classic. I always try to think: WWGAW, "What Would Grace or Audrey Wear?" I think both would have loved this skirt.

  5. MMJ was a good challenge for me. The last week was kind of a wash, but for wearing the same couple sleep shorts to work at home most days. But I did take a little more care with getting dressed and wore some MM jewelry too. Not all of it got blogged as I'm bogged down with a LOT of stitching work right now for others.

    I've enjoyed your outfits. You look lovely and bright. So glad I found your blog.

  6. I have really enjoyed looking at everyone's MeMade's though through jealous eyes! I can't wait to have enough wardrobe content to join in and I have been thoroughly bombarded with work recently which has jinxed any sewing opportunity... just to add to the pain! Thank you for making such lovely posts, Tilly. It all adds to inspire me to do more! x

  7. Those are some lovely backgrounds! Looks like you had fun! :)

    I really liked all your MMJ outfits, but that Loire Valley skirt is really something, I love the color and print! I recently had to buy some fabric of a similar color and print, just because it reminded me of your skirt (although it's an Ikea canvas print, probably not very suited for a skirt... Ah well, it'll make a lovely purse...)
