The first week of Me Made March 2011 is now over! I gave myself a rather ambitious challenge – to wear only outfits made entirely by me (including underwear!) for all of March 2011. So far, it’s not going too badly, although there have been a couple of slip-ups (however, all with very good reasons!). I’m really liking focusing on wearing things I’ve made myself – in fact, it’s making me want to make more and more and get rid of everything from my wardrobe that wasn’t made by me! (Although that may take a while let….)
The other thing it’s doing is making me realise what gaps I have in my self-made wardrobe. Some of which I really need to fill, and will set to work filling just as soon as I get my sewing space back post-renovations! (Which had better be soon, as I’ve been unable to sew for nearly a week and I’m suffering withdrawal! Argh!!!) So to make sure I don’t forget what I need to make once I do get my space back, here’s what I’ve discovered I’m lacking in the self-made department so far:
And without further ado, here’s how the first week went!
Yep, there are quite a few things in that first week of outfits that were made as part of The Sew Weekly challenges I’ve done this year. But then, with nearly all of my wardrobe packed in boxes for the past two months while the renovations take longer than expected, this isn’t overly surprising! I should be able to get back into my bedroom mid next week and start finding things again, so hopefully you’ll get to see some new things from then on. 🙂
The other thing that’s missing from the above photos (for those of you who are observant!) is that there is no photo for March 6. I started off the day well, with long denim shorts and a pink-and-navy striped tshirt I’d made, but then a nasty cold Southerly kicked in. Since I was outside all day, I had to layer on the warm clothes. And without access to most of my wardrobe (*sigh*), sadly that meant things that weren’t made by me. Sad, but true. 😦 I forgot to get a pic of the outfit I started the day in, so no photo. Maybe next time. 🙂
