Here's an up-close of my Pink Reeta. Lots to talk about with this make on the blog soon!
I'm taking part in #memademay for the very first time this year! I pledge to wear at least one handmade item for every day of May 💃
A bit nervous about the idea of refashioning a project for someone else? Not to worry! We've created a printable questionnaire to make sure you get a good grasp on the other persons style and preferences. Plus you can rest assured that whoever is Restyling your garment will have the same! Today is the last day to sign up for the #restylingexchange2017 so head over to my or @pilar_bear 's blog and don't miss out!
It's that time of year again! This year I am committing to wearing something me made every day in the month of May! I'm a little nervous because the temperatures have dropped earlier than last year, so my summer sewing won't be able to fill the gaps quite as much as it did last year! I can't wait to see everyone's creations! #mmmay17#memademay#pledge#sewersofinstagram
I, Jayne sign up as a participant of #mmmay17 I endeavour to wear me-made clothing everyday, for the duration of May 17. As I normally wear one item daily I will be aiming to wear 2 me-mades at least 3 days a week. I'm hoping to establish what is really missing from my wardrobe and I will also be using this month to finish a few unfinished sews. Thank you to @sozoblog for creating this challenge.
#makersforfashrev day 6 Game Changer// While there have been many game changers along my path, true cost movie, and the overdressed book to name a few. Most recent has been shoe making, demystifying shoes really drove home not only how all clothes really are handmade, but the impact good quality materials can make to endurance and comfort, why have I been accepting synthetic lining and the discomfort it brings for so long! It also really highlighted the importance of connecting people with the process, it's easy to make poor choices when you have no idea of the human and environmental cost involved #fashrev#fashionrevolution#imakemyclothes
Last minute leap for me into #mmmay17 (yikes!) I've been toying with the idea after seeing so many #sewersofinstagram jumping in so here goes! I commit to wear one item of clothing made by me every day in May which will hopefully prompt me to make a few items other than dresses!! I'll post photos but with my limited me-made wardrobe there'll be a feeling of deja-vu for some! #apologiesinadvance
To all my non sewing friends....I have signed up for Me Made May #mmm17 hosted by @sozoblog . I hope to wear something me made at least five days a week and plan to often post pictures of it here. This is about celebrating what we make, thinking about our wardobes and for me looking at pieces I have made which disappointed me and seeing if I can refashion or relove them. I hope I am not self absorbed or seeking compliments, just sharing the joy and pleasure the gift of creating gives me. Today I wore my new me made blue dress!

It's the last day of #makersforfashrev by @inthefolds : Small Changes Big Differences. This week has inspired me to take a closer look at my closet again. It has made me think about why and how I add new pieces to my closet, and how those choices effects the environment. The battle isn't over though - this week was just a reminder of the work that needs to happen every single day. How do you feel now that #fashrev and #whomademyclothes are over? #sewing#sewingcommunity#sewcialists#sewersofinstagram#ompelu
I've had this serger for 2 weeks now, and only just got up the courage to take it out of the box. It will probably take me another 2 weeks to get brave enough to try it. 😳 #sergerfear#sewing#sewersofinstagram
Hey everyone, I've got an announcement to make! IVE GOT AN ETSY SHOP!!! (Sorry didn't mean to shout)😅 I'm just so excited!

I've been dreaming of doing this for years and I can't believe I've done, fingers crossed it works out! I'm so nervous! #knittersofinstagram#crochetersofinstagram#craftersofinstagram#sewersofinstagram#etsyshop
When the details really work: I wasn't really sure if I liked these two fabrics together for the skirt I'm making. Swipe left to see how much better this looks with the ribbon detail!
Nachdem sich der Frühling doch endlich blicken lässt, habe ich vor kurzem schnell dieses Kleid genäht, das ich schon im Kopf hatte als ich die Stoffe bei @stoffstil gekauft habe! Das Schnittmuster ist Miss Ella von @annascountryde und ist wirklich ganz schnell genäht! Um die Details vom Rückteil zu sehen müsst ihr am Bild einmal weiterwischen 😊
A photo of the @sewoveritlondon #ZoeDress I made in a class a few weeks ago. It's hard to tell in the photo but it's made in a medium weight denim. It's a great work dress and already been well worn! #soishowoff
