Me Made June comes to an end....

Well, Friends, it's been a delightful journey of only wearing things I have altered/refashioned/made.  I got a little twitchy at the end to wear other things to work, but I stuck with it the whole time. Yay!  I wore the embellished sweater almost every single day and my favorite item to come out of the challenge was the refashioned khaki skirt.  It will be used regularly, I can tell.

Day 27:  I forgot to take a picture so I drew you one.

 In my picture, I am wearing my Roman Holiday blouse and choir girl turned secretary skirt.

This is me longing for my jeans...

...and then sucking it up.  I can finish the challenge strong!

Day 29: Wearing my unrequited love blouse and my new polka dot skirt... and sitting on the rug that used to cover our floor.  We are officially in packing mode... I've been trying to sort fabric to take with me to our sublet, but I want to take it all. This is a problem.

And finally, Day 30. I'm wearing the blouse seen here and my cankle khaki skirt.
 Ah, Cutting for are such an awesome book.

I will be really glad not to have to take pictures of myself everyday :)  I'm sure Rob will be glad as well since he'll actually get to sleep until it's time for him to wake up ... rather than waking up to me poking him with a camera.

Have a great night, all! And thanks for all of your support this month - you are uber fabulous :)


  1. Haha! I love these photos and the drawing. Even though I made it most of the way through, I lack evidence because I got tired of photo-taking.
    And I totally sympathize with your want-jeans photo. Me-Made-Months always remind me that I've made only two pairs of shorts and one pair of pants in my whole sewing career, and zillions of skirts and dresses. How practical of me! Because, you know, it is not like I wear pants EVERY DAY or anything! We should have a bifurcated garment challenge at the SW to fix this problem.

  2. Yay, congrats for making it through the challenge! I'm glad you muscled your way through the jeans-less day :) Good luck with packing!
