May is just moving right along whether I am sewing or not, and actually I am sewing, finally! I got to my first project of three Saturday night, and I finished it. I should get a chance to wear it sometime this coming week. As far as wearing me-made items, it really hasn’t been that hard. If I had a few more to start with, I would have endeavored to wear more than just one a week. Most everything I have made, I do wear. The few that I end up not liking once they are made, I am able to get rid of them pretty easily.
I don’t just make skirts either, I do also have a few dresses and shirts, but the dresses are not warm weather appropriate and I have yet to perfect a me-made shirt. So you all are stuck seeing another one of my homemade skirts.
This one is a favorite. I like to also wear it as an under skirt to add length to some of my not-quite-ankle-length dresses. And since the material is thin, it is cool and comfy for a hot and humid day, even though it is black.
I have spent a little bit of time browsing through some of the other Me Made May blog posts, and I must say I am very inspired. There is a great community of homemade fashionistas out there! I haven’t made it to the flickr page yet, but I am sure there is even more over there. I have gotten so many ideas just from what I have seen on other sites. Good work to all of you, fellow participants! I am looking forward to the rest of your homemade styles as the month goes on.
