Wrapping Up Me Made May '13

Well, here we are, Me Made May has come to a close. A big thank you to Zoe for coming up with this idea, and encouraging us all along the way! Here's how I did with the final two days...


Back in Time dress.
The weather was cooperating at last, and I've started wearing an apron at work, so dresses during the week, here I come!



Victory Patterns Chloe dress - new make!
I often think that I'll make up patterns again, and this time I did. 
I'll give this one a post of it's own later this week.


As for Me Made May 2013, well, I did miss a few days. Until halfway through the month, I didn't have any t-shirts in my arsenal, and had to resort to some RTW items for gardening etc., since most of the things I make are for more suited to wearing out in the world. But on the whole I'd say it was a successful challenge. I eliminated a couple of Me-Mades that were not up to snuff (amazing what taking a photo of yourself everyday will do!), and wore just about every piece I had, weather permitting. And I have a list of new makes to fill in some holes in my spring/summer wardrobe. 

And of course, one of the best things was finding new blogs to follow! It's pretty cool to think of us all doing something together, from all over the world, without even knowing each other. 

Tune in soon for some new makes!
