Bloody hell, has a year really gone by already?! So much has happened but I'm excited to be back and challenging myself again this May. It seems that for most Me-Made-may participants who have been sewing for a while, the main thrust of their pledges is to excavate what lies within the dark crevices of their hand-made wardrobe! I am doing that in the form of wearing skirts and dresses far more than I usually do, to see if I can get myself out of my 'jeans and knit top' formula/rut. Here goes:
Day 1 (spent in Spain!)
Day 2 (spent in Spain)
Day 3 (spent in airports)
(with secondhand jeans)
Black leggings (yes, they were once maternity leggings, although I called them treggings back then)
- How comfortable a dress or skirt is really seems to hang on the comfort levels of the footwear and hosiery! Dresses and skirts that can be worn with trainers stop people asking 'why are you all dressed up?' when they are used to seeing me in stained jeans every day.
- Doing no photo editing whatsoever leads to less than fab photos (unless you're in sunny Spain) but makes the documentation and sharing process much more amenable.
