Me Made May 2015

So I took a rather impromptu, accidental blogging break. I've been enjoying the sunshine (both in Cyprus and here). I've read some books. I've colour-coordinated my Pinterest boards. I've made a couple of skirts and a Francoise dress. I've marked a lot of test papers. I've dug out some of the garden. I've drunk some bubbly. I've watched twenty-four episodes of Masterchef.
I've kind of enjoyed the break.

But I am excited to be back for Me Made May. It was (unbelievably only) roughly this time last year that I made my first dress (bumpy zip and all) and planned to wear four handmade items per week during the month of May. Some of you might remember the excitement about my first handmade dress, then the disappointment when I spilt bleach down it. 

Since then, I've stopped bleaching the toilet while wearing pretty dresses. I've remade that dress and I've sewn a whole load more clothes too. It is with a fairly well-stocked handmade wardrobe that...

'I, Emma of itsemmamade.blogspot.co.uk, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '15. I endeavour to wear one piece of handmade clothing each day for the duration of May 2015'

You can follow my progress on Instagram (#mmmay15) and here on this blog.

Anyone else joining in?


  1. Alas I won't be joining as a very novice sewer but looking forward to seeing whay you make. Xxxxxxx Leah

  2. Welcome back Emma :-) I thought I hadn't seen you pop up on my feed for a while. Sometimes it's best to just let real life take over, especially during this lovely weather. I too watched a lot of masterchef (what can I crochet to now in the evenings now?!?) and was really chuffed with who won. Looking forward to seeing all your new outfits. I'm moving tomorrow and my new room has a big desk which I think will be great as a sewing table so hope to crack on with some now we have evening light. Have a good week :-)
