So my Instagram feed is chock full of fabulous Me Made outfits from sewists across the world. I am loving seeing people's takes on all sorts of pattern.
You may have read that I have decided to take part in Me Made May this year And not just because I am a sucker for alliteration. I thought it would be fun to see if I could wear or carry at least one me made item every day for a month.
Week one has seen quite a big drop in temp here in Mildura, as you will see from the photos, I started may with bare legs, and today I am wearing tights, a scarf and coat.
Ok, so hear is the run down so far. In no particular order (left to right, top to bottom):
Image one, Isley skirt by Marillia Walker in chambray.
Image two, a vintage shirt dress patterns from Butterick in double gauze ikat.
Image three McCall's 6885 in striped upholstery fabric.
Image four New Look 6394 in a red and white gingham print rayon.
Image five, Rebecca Taylor for Vouge 1395 in a bow print poly
Image six, pants Simplicity 1430 in red strech satire with a bambo print, jacket McCall's 7100 in black neoprene, the gorgeous boy is borrowed.
