I decided to participate in Me Made May again for 2020. I felt like it gave me something to do a purpose if you will to wear one garment made by me everyday for the month of May. I really love the clothes I make sometimes for a long time, and sometimes temporarily and I find new homes for them. So here are the ones for Autumn this year.
My choices for the first 15 days;
Day 1 Day 2
Day 3Day 4
Day 5 6
Day 7 8
Day 9 10
Day 13Day 14
Day 1:- A self drafted top made from an open weave silk remnant.
Day 2 :- A Wool Tabard pattern V1569 made from fabric from Spotlight a wool textured weave and assorted wool remnants from my stash.
Day 3 :- Style Arc patterns Sydney Dress in a tencel and cotton mix.
Day 4 :- A self drafted reversible jacket using silk from a vintage kimono jacket . I unpicked the kimono jacket then discovered that the reverse of the fabric was wonderful so I knew it needed to be reversible
Day 5 :- Wiksten Shift top made in Liberty cotton from The Fabric Store.
Day 6 :- A V1355 Sandra Betzina pattern I like to call secret pyjamas. Also with a reversible top and a reversible self drafted wrap. I do like versatility in my clothes.

Day 12 :- A self drafted top made in “Cotton + Steel, cotton fabric , Wildwood peonies navy”. If you get a chance to use this fabric made by this company it is gorgeous to wear. I purchased mine from Miss Matabi Japanese fabric store online.
