So, peops, how´s it going with the MMMar´11? Judging from the Flickr Pool, it´s seems to be working out great for most.
Just to refresh your memory (and my own), here´s my vow for the month:
‘I, Sølvi of delfinelise, enthusiastically sign up as a participant of Me-Made-March ’11. I endeavour to wear as much me-made and refashioned items as possible, all depending on weather, and with the exception of tights and undies each day for the duration of March 2011.’
So far, I´ve only worn me-mades, not any refashions at all, actually. This is mostly due to the fact that I didn´t remember if I´d written it in my little vow (and didn´t bother to go back and check. Hello lazy…). Apparently I had, so for the rest of the month, you might see some refashioned items as well.
My neglected, almost finished jacket.
I am, for the most part, quite content with my month so far. The only thing I´m missing is outerwear. I am nearly finished with a cute transition appropriate coat/jacket, but I haven´t made the buttonholes yet due to:
- random laziness
- not having thread in the right color
- fantasies about bound buttonholes (but that really is too late for this project, should have thought about that earlier)
- my sewing machines buttonhole function has been going crazy lately
So really, I should go to the store, buy some proper thread, hand stitch my buttonholes, and ta-da! I´ll have a new jacket…
Enough about what I didn´t do, here´s what I DID wear so far:
For details, check out my Flickr Set, I have all the pattern numbers and such there.
Except from one knit top, I actually wore different pieces each and every day. The oldest items are the black pants from day 15, the red pants form day 1 and the dresses made into skirts seen on day 3 and 4. All those pieces are from 2005 – 2009. Everything else (I think) was made last year or this year. This tells us quite a lot about my increased sewing mania. 🙂
I hope MMMar´11 is going great for all of you who participates, wether you are able to document it or not. Happy sewing!
