OMG, it’s May! That is, it’s Me Made May and I FINALLY have enough me-mades to participate!

I’ll have to do phone selfies (woo!) in mirrors at work as I have nothing set up here at home and the tripod attachment thing I ordered for my phone has not yet arrived.

This should be fun. I wear me-mades pretty much every day as it is. My 2 pants and 1 skirt are me-mades. The other skirt I wear I altered to fit, but if I wear it with me-made leggings I’m sure it will count.

Hopefully documenting this (maybe weekly posts? I’m not sure) will prompt me to fill some gaps in my wardrobe. Some items need replacing, and I have the fabric for at least 3 more t-shirts and a couple more pairs of leggings. I also need more bottoms. Then there’s also the Brightest Hiking Gear Ever. I need to get on that.

My colour palette is black, grey, maroon/burgundy-ish, purple, and coral. Pretty much all shades of these colours are accepted, as long as they are harmonious with other shades I already have.

In fact, I just made some maroon/purpleish dress pants from my Style Arc Barb’s something something pattern. I just pivoted at the crotch point and made them 4″ bigger at the ankle (1″ on the inside, 1″ on the outside) and they’re pretty much perfect. The fabric I used is a different kind of drapey stretch from the denim, so they’re a little big. But with the elastic waist no one knows. And they’re comfy like PJs, but look like dress pants. The Best. I hope to score more fabric for a narrow legged pair as well as a skirt.
