In my head I am a sewing goddess, fabulous with fabric and zappy with a serger (I don’t even own one) with a wardrobe bursting at the seams with home-made, well-made, vintage-style garments. My head is also very good at allowing me to think that a) I can sing b) I am assertive and c) when I ride my bike I look like a French Resistance heroine. You can safely say that I have a very good imagination.
Do you see where I’m going with this…
Me-Made-June is very hard to carry through when your wardrobe is made up of imaginary clothes. OK, I have actually made clothes and if it was sunny, I think I could manage to see through this pledge. But, while everyone else is on day 17, I’m on my day 2 (I didn’t see the challenge until the day before yesterday, honest!). I am looking at the weeks ahead wondering how I’m going to do this because unless the sun comes out I’m going to have to break my ‘No Tights in June’ rule –Oh heck!
Right, I will try my very best. I may even get some opaques out from the back of the cupboard (with my green skirt?).
Day 1 (or 16 if you’re doing this already):
My black, jumble sale fabric made into a sun top. I couldn’t believe my luck when I found this and there was enough to make a skirt too. I’m wearing it here with a black t shirt because our office has been a bit chilly of late, and that’s where I was heading after this photo. Incidentally, I don’t actually have a hairy face, well not that hairy anyway.
Day 2 (17 to you)
No photo, but I promise I am wearing my Liberty top. It’s a bit tight, so tomorrow I’m going to sort out the elastic. When I take it off tonight I’m going to have a very attractive crinkle line.
I will do my best to keep this up … have a good weekend!
