Me-Made-May 1-5

So another Me-Made May is upon us.  I didn't officially sign up this year, more due to absent-mindedness than anything else, but I have been thinking about it.  My personal pledge this May is 3-fold:
       1. M-F, wear all handmade with the optional exception of one garment each day (under-garments and layering camis don't count toward my one RTW garment)
       2. Weekends, wear at least one handmade garment every day
       3.  Don't stress.  I didn't officially sign up, after all, so cheating is acceptable from time to time.

Here's what I wore for days 1-5.  There are some new things that I'll come back and give their own blog posts.

Friday the 1st
       I wore my recently-made Simplicity 1810 with a new knitted shrug, soon to be blogged about.

Saturday the 2nd
       I wore purchased shorts and my flamingo tee.

Sunday the 3rd
       I wore my brand new Marfy 3443, soon to be blogged about.

Monday the 4th
       I wore this skirt with a new blouse.  Sooo, I seem to be a bit behind on blogging about recently finished projects.

Tuesday the 5th 
       Today was a big old fail.  :-(  Well not really frown-y face - it was a perfectly happy day, but you know what I mean.  My mom's been visiting, and we've been shopping, and I bought a new top, so yeah, I just wanted to wear it today.  And I wore it with store-bought jeans, so yeah.  Bad Jenny.  I didn't even take a photo since I was sure I'd be able to find a pic of the top on Anthropologie's website, but no such luck.

Who else is participating in Me-Made-May?  The Marfy dress above has had my full attention for the past two weeks or two, so I'm anxious to get a few easier pieces made soon.


  1. OOh I like that Marfy dress. Looking forward to your post on that!

  2. I have yet to finish anything I've started for myself! I should tell the grandbabies to do Mimi-made May!! The girls have several skirts :-).


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! It is wonderful to know someone is reading. :-)
