I'm sure I'm not the only one a little sad now that OWOP is over... These days I have been enjoying wearing the clothes I have made more than ever. Partly because my skills have improved, but mostly I think, because I am learning better how to make for myself.
When I first began making my own clothes, I would often get a little carried away with an idea, not really stopping to think (and not really having the experience to judge) how certain fabrics might react to certain shapes, and how the finished piece would actually look on me. Being a self-taught sewist, trial and error has taught me everything I know. But I feel I have now reached a point where I am consistently making clothes that I love and want to wear all the time. I no longer feel like a fraud!
So it is with great excitement that I am signing up for Zoe's 6th Me-Made challenge, Me-Made-May'12 (MMM'12), pledging to wear two items of me-made clothing every day for the duration of May 2012. This will see me upping my pledge by one item of me-made clothing since the last time I participated in Self-Stitched-Sept'11...
Like last year, I will be compiling a new inventory of my me-made wardrobe (but this time Clueless-style! Watch this space for the wardrobe inventory to end all wardrobe inventories!!), and spending the last week in April filling in any obvious gaps.
One thing that I did find to be hugely challenging last time though, was the daily outfit photographing. Any tips/ideas on making this less of a hassle??
