Made-By-Me-May

While doing my daily surfing exercises yesterday (hey come on, my fingers get quite a workout!), I came across 'So Zoe', another one of my now favorite sewing related blogs. For the month of March, Zoe pledged to wear only items she had made herself. (except bras,socks, tights and shoes)  Now, she has proposed 'Me-Made-May' in which she is inviting everyone to join her! I have signed up for the 'light' version, which means I have pledged to wear at least one me-made item everyday throughout May. I do have quite a few 'me-made' items in my wardrobe, but the majority of them are for the fall/winter season. I guess that means I have to fire up the old sewing machine! Gee, that'll be quite the hardship. Another  'current project' she has running, is 'Stash-Bustin', and has suggested we join her in that endeavor as well. Since I had already sort of decided to do it anyway, I agreed to that too. (aargh, that Fabricland gift certificate is coming back to haunt me!!) Maybe (hopefully) I can make a dent in my stash for my spring/summer wardrobe.

I did manage to make this yesterday. I wanted a light cardigan for the summer, and I found this pale aqua knit in my stash. It is very fine, and is to light weight to make a regular top out of. But it is perfect for this. I also had the sequin ribbon in my stash, and it is a perfect match. I'm pretty happy with it. Today I worked on a short sleeved blouse, and tomorrow I'll finish the hems and button holes.

  1. I like it! A girl can never have too many cardis, right? :-)
