I've watched Me Made May from the sidelines the past couple of years, but this year, almost at the last minute, i jumped in. I have pledged to wear at least one me-made item every day in May, and am using it to identify gaps in my handmade wardrobe. So far, that translates to i am great at summery tops but need more cold weather wear. I also need weekend wear - specifically bottoms - as i'm tired of wearing jeans every weekend. I don't look good in jeans (short legs + childbearing hips = dumpy potato). However i like the non-ironing component of wearing jeans and so i channelled my inner bogan and sewed a denim skirt, and wore it on Sunday. Go me. The other thing is that i need dresses. Skirts, check. Tops, check. Cardigans, check. Dresses, not so much.
So, dresses, particularly winter dresses. And maybe some pants and warm tops.
I'm logging it daily over on Instagram, together with never ending photographs of pretty leaves because hello Melbourne autumn, but here are some for your viewing pleasure.*
Bonus Burmeses. Look at the body language. Little One, leaning in: I love you! I look up to you! I worship your whiskers! Big One: Really, do we have to do this? Can I go now?
* i saw my blog on a computer-size screen the other day instead of just on the iPad and was shocked at the quality of the photos when they're that big. Those iPhone photos look fine on a phone or iPad screen. Apologies! I really should get back to using the Big Black camera but i can't go past the portability of my phone.
