I'm wholeheartedly enjoying following all the Me-Made-June posts out there, even though admittedly, there's a part of me that is sad not to be joining in. Fingers crossed though that I'll have enough me-made clothes for September eh!?! To counteract this sad feeling and to take me one step closer to joining taking part in the future, I mentally set myself a self-imposed challenge last week. It's only on a tiny scale, but it's been very motivating, so I thought that sharing it with you all will keep me going.
On 15 June I'm heading to Cyprus to visit my family and for the first time ever, I'd like to take some of my self-made clothes with me. Due to the limited time frame I settled on three me-made garments - secretly because three is my favourite number and of course 'the magic number'. The first one was my Crescent Skirt which I managed to complete this weekend. So one down, two to go!!!
The two remaining garments that I'm working on are:
The gorgeous and generously free Sorbetto Top by Colette Patterns, in a sheer cotton voile that I picked up at the Goldhawk Road Fabric Fandago.
Vogue 7648 from the 1950s, which I think has such a summery vibe. I'm not sure about my fabric choice though! It could be a massive fail with the fluorescent pink and orange flowers, but at only £3.99 p/m I haven't got a lot to lose...and it is incredibly soft!
So, what's on your cutting table?
