Hello! I'm here - swamped with stuff and a bit manic - but here none the less. And I've managed 4 Me Mades in the first 6 days of MMM '13 so I'm on target - woo hoo!
I even managed to figure out how to upload stuff on Flickr - occasionally I just have a 'special' moment - I have no idea why I was struggling with it, I'm perfectly IT literate but lost the plot. I'm blaming it on tiredness. Anyway, enough waffling, here goes:
|MMM ’13 – 03/05/13 – Free Colette Sorbetto pattern –|
Vintage fabric, 36” wide, approx 1 yard, £6
MMM ’13 – 05/05/13 – Free Colette Sorbetto patter, ‘Mena sleeves’,pleated neckline & facings –Liberty lawn remnant, approx 1 m,£9.74
Another Sorbetto I made last year. I fell in love with this fabric but was worried that it was expensive (about £18 a metre) and I didn't really have a clue what I was doing. As soon as I saw it in the sale I bought it and decided to get brave. The quality is lovely, I now have some more I picked up secondhand - I'm just deciding what to do with it. I don't know if you can tell but I pleated some fabric around the neckline (which has a facing) - I didn't want to use bias binding again. And the sleeves are the ones Mena drafted on The Sew Weekly. This top is longer and is so versatile, the colours mean I can pair it with lots of things, tucked in and hanging out. It is my favourite thing I have made.
Finally, today - and it's a bit of a cop out. I've been gardening and rushing about in my 'scruffs' so my Me Made today is PJs. I know, I know, but I did make them as part of Karen's Pyjama Party about a year ago.
|I used this pattern - have had it donkey's years as it was used for a top my daughter made in Design |
Technology - honestly, must be 12 years ago! I'm nothing if not frugal!
As you can see, I made the shorts. Cost - £0.00 as I used leftovers from a skirt. Bargain!
So that's it, my quick round-up. I am so enjoying seeing everything everyone is wearing. Now I need to plan next week ...
