So I have decided to take part in "Made by me May" or perhaps that should be "Made by me May Lite", basically I am going to try and wear on thing I have made myself for each day in May - which is going to mean I'll need to make more things or have a very boring month wardrobe wise!
Taking part in a challenge like this is one of my "35 before 35" goals, so I figured that now was a good time to get started.
I got the idea from a blog called "So, Zo.....what do you know?" - I'm not joining the official facebook group or anything as I don't feel that my skills will really measure up to a lot of the other girls on there who look like they have mad sewing skills and I'm still struggling with invisible zippers. So I've decided to take the idea of "Made by Me May" but kind of "go it alone" so to speak. Maybe next year I'll have more confidence in my sewing and I'll want to make it all official like.
Finally I decided I just needed to make SOMETHING with the fabric so I decided on a wrap around skirt - part of the skirt is Sailor Moon and part is plain purple fabric.
I wore to to work today (as evidenced by the swipe card at my waist) but I'm not sure about wearing it with this lacy top - I think in the future I'll pair it with the tee or a singlet.
I'm also a bit weirded out by the A-line shape of it - there was a time when I only wore skirts and the only skirts I wore were A-line. But I haven't been wearing skirts that much in recent years so I feel like this shape looks a bit weird on me. However an A-line skirt is pretty much the most flattering skirt shape in the world so it most likely looks fine.
Well, wish me luck for the rest of "Made by Me May" - I feel a lot of sewing in the near future.
