Me Made May – Week One

My first week of me made may has just finished, for anyone that doesn’t know it’s a month long challenge set by Zoe over at ‘So zo.. What do you know‘ to actually wear the clothes you make, I decided to wear something handmade/refashioned every day. You can check out the photo’s of what I wore all week below. I’ve learnt a lot about myself this week, probably more from the act of taking photographs of myself everyday! The first thing is that I need to start making things other than dresses, as much as I love wearing them I’ve been craving jeans and flip flops! Secondly I need to make more effort with my hair and I’m not 100% sold on the fringe I cut it so I could grow out my eyebrows, but now they’re back to normal I’m not sure if I want to keep it. Lastly I put on quite a lot of weight over the winter and although I usually lose it over the summer it can’t be right to yo-yo up and down so much each year!  (I know the last two aren’t really related to sewing but they’ve been really bugging me!)

I’m loving checking out what other people are wearing on flickr (even though I’m not the best at uploading everyday!) it’s great to see so many others inspired by this challenge.

Oh I almost forgot! I’m still stash-busting and haven’t bought anything crafty all week, although I’ve sorely tempted as I’ve been doing a lot of embroidery and my selection of floss isn’t great, but I’m going to try and stick with it!
