Phew! We're done!
My second Tonic 2 tee. (This has since had the sleeves shortened to summer length.)
My Paron Multicities skirt with matching blue dunny seat. This skirt has had a couple of wears this month. I need to fix the lining though.
Locker room shot! Also a Three-Made-May day - croheted cardi, tonic tee and skirt.
You know how it is - you are invited to a birthday party and you have nothing to wear. An hour later, the problem is solved with another Tonic 2 tee (with thanks to my new overlocker)
Wore the same Tonic 2 tee to the swimming pool, in the garden, and to the garden centre. BEST SHIRT EVER.
This must be the third or fourth wear of this skirt this month. And that dunny seat is pretty damn awesome.
Skirt. Crocheted scarf held in hand. The weather has been really mild for most of May, so for once Me-Made-May in Canberra has been very pleasant.
Skirt, shawl, bus pass. Bored now.
Skirt, shawl and a fabulous dose of afternoon hayfever.
Finally, the end. A new Tonic tee. I also wore this to dinner that night with the shawl from the day before.
So what did I learn from this year's challenge? Not including the revelations from yesterday's post, I learned that:
1. I have some great staples in my wardrobe
2. I really do need more winter skirts
3. I need to make more t-shirts for lounging at home as my old Bonds ones are dying and heck - for a few bucks of fabric and an hour of my time, I can have a whole new t-shirt.
4. A pair of lounging PJ pants would come in handy for those days I was home sick (there were a few this month)
5. I have a great looking pattern for leggings and a new found love of knits. I should get on that.
6. I hate selfies.
I hope my fellow sewists enjoyed Me-Made-May as much as I did, and learned as much as I did. This year has been a revelation - I went from wanting to quit sewing at the end of last month, to absolutely being in love with it all over again.
