It’s finally here, and it came up so quickly! I feel unprepared for this challenge; but isn’t that why it’s a challenge? Yes.
For MMM’13 I pledged to wear self-made wardrobe items at least two days per week for the duration of May. This was a short week and I didn’t have much time to dig through my closet. Therefore, we have here two versions of the same blouse that I made late last summer during a very short lull in my work. I can’t say these are the crowning achievement of my sewing life, but they came out pretty well and did not take all that long to make. Having dropped some weight, these comfy blouses are a bit roomier than originally intended. I can’t remember the pattern number, but I think it’s a Simplicity. Some liberties were taken with the printed pattern due to the fact that I did not have quite enough fabric to cut out as instructed. I’m pretty bad at following directions!
My original pledge as follows: I, Margaret, of Senjiva Studio, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’13. I endeavour to wear.a self-made garment at least twice a week, as well as to sew two new garments for the duration of May 2013′
