“I, Marianna of Sew2Pro, hereby pledge allegiance to the worthy cause that is Me-Made-May. Each day in the month of May ’13, I shall wear at least one garment made by myself. And should the skies curse us with the same cold and ceaseless rain as we bore almost every day of May ’12 (grits teeth), I shall be covered; for I shall finally sew replacement lining for my old RTW coats and one leather jacket. It’s my most procrastinated project ever!”
To kick off M-M-M, I’m wearing the latest Laurel (review here) with which I’ve entered the Laurel Contest. Have you seen how many entries there are!? They’re an imaginative, creative bunch, these sewists who favour independent patterns. In other words, I don’t stand a chance of winning! But I love my new dress. The fabric, Zen Charmer from Alexander Henry, is from 2008, a stash treasure, and I hope I do it justice even as I currently wear it with flip-flops, horrendously neglected winter feet and leggings 😯 ….
