This year I decided not to clutter up my blog with daily or weekly posts and the collage below is what I have worn during May. This link will take you to my Flicker Album if you would like to see any of my outfits in more detail.
I know I don't want a large wardrobe, so I am quite happy to see most of my garments being worn multiple times, my biggest challenge is to make the outfits look different when I am sitting at my desk at work.
There are still holes in my wardrobe and this is what I need to make:
- I still need layers in my wardrobe and even though this comes to light every May I haven't managed to rectify this.
- I only have 1 plain long sleeved top and this made it difficult to wear a couple of other items in my wardrobe when the weather finally got cooler.
- Some more necklaces.
So how did I go with my challenges for May 2016?
"I, Sharon from Petite & Sewing, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '16;I will wear handmade clothing (except lingerie) for the duration of May. My challenge is to finish the Burda wool jacket I started in January this year as well as lengthening the 3/4 sleeves on my Miette cardigan."
Not 100% finished but both garments are looking like they will be worn this Winter so that is a plus and it means two more layers added to the wardrobe!
- Burda 7286 has the hems, pick the buttons and buttonholes left to do.
- My Miette has one long sleeve and the other one is halfway there.
I really liked seeing the variety in the MeMadeMay2016 Flicker group and there are a few things now on my wish list and that includes some cardigans!
