More Me-Made-May Madness!


Life has been pretty crazy recently. So you'd think that challenging myself to wear homemade garments every day for a month would be just one too many layers of crazy, enough to push me over the edge. Surprisingly, however, Me-Made-May has been really easy! (Check out my Me-Made-May photos from the first half of the month too.) It just goes to show that wearing homemade is becoming part of my regular lifestyle. Awesome :)

Erm... about the random chest shot on Day 20. I was at the Cannes Film Festival (darling) and too embarrassed to ask anyone to take a photo of me, so I just turned my iPhone camera on myself while waiting for a movie to start. Ah and if you're wondering what the rail of clothing is on Day 29, they're the garments featured in DIY Couture! The photo was taken by Karen at the book launch, where we had mega fun (although it was insanely hot) chatting to other stitchers and crafty peeps.

I've been working hard on the Picnic Blanket Skirt tutorial, but I've promised myself a day off tomorrow so I hope you don't mind waiting a few more days. In the meantime if you want to get your fabric ready, 2.5 metres should suffice, give or take a bit depending on your frame and how gathered you want the skirt to be, plus you'll need 7 to 10 3/4 inch buttons depending on your height.

In the meantime, hope you have a lovely weekend. Any sewing plans, perchance?
