Me-Made-May is an annual event for sewing bloggers. We make a pledge to wear something made by us every day of the month. I pledge to wear at least one item every day.
This is aligning with my TV Fast so I should have time to take photos every day. Taking daily photos is the most challenging part of the pledge for most of us it seems. For example, I only have 2 photos for the first four days. : /
On the weekend I wore my plum pencil skirt and Digital Dot Pendrell blouse. The jacket is purchased from Gap.
The second photo is of me and my dog-brother, Piper. He is my parent’s dog and we constantly fight over who is the favourite child. So far I am losing. I’m wearing my London-inspired Minoru rain coat.
Are you participating in MMM? If yes, when do you take photos?
I am in! It’s the first time for me, so I think I am kind of slapping everything together here. Hopefully it will all turn out!
More than anything it helps you find where the gaps in your wardrobe are. Every year I tell myself to sew more separate knits! But I make more dresses!
This is my third year. This year I decided a quick cell phone selfie in the mirror, on my way out the door to work, will do. The last two years I got up a little earlier, used my good camera and tripod, and took pics most mornings. But I’m notoriously slow in the morning, and it was a hassle. So it’s been a real relief to just snap a quick mirror pic and be on my way.
Good idea! Tho I would have to clean my mirror. 🙂
