Me Made May 1

During our cold snap a couple of weeks ago, I wore my own knitted creations three days in a row. Once I was on a roll, I decided to see how long I could keep it up. I've been wearing something that I knit, sewed or dyed every day since then.  This morning, Iris even joined in and wore both a top and skirt that I sewed for her!

That makes me an ideal candidate for Me-Made-May. The great thing about Me-Made-May is that we get to define our own rules for success.  I don't have any desire to make everything I wear.  But, I will challenge myself to wear something that I made or refashioned every day through May.  I did my semi-annual closet purge and inventory last weekend.  There were so many lovely things that I want to enjoy more often.

I don't have the time and energy to post every day, but I will try to post weekly through May, usually on the weekend. This is what I wore on May 1. You will have to wait to read the review of the jacket pattern. A free gift for the first person to guess the pattern! Leave a comment with your guess.
If you are new to this blog, you can see some of the things I have

  1. I like those pieces together. I didn't join me-made because I am eliminating faster than I am making or even re-making but after I looked at your photo I realized I have worn something I made every day this month. Granted that is only 4 days and today I am wearing hand-knit socks which no one sees, but still. I think I'll see how long I can do this, just for fun.

  2. ooooooooh I do like this outfit.

    I don't seem to make clothes any more lack of fabric stores here in UK is the main problem
