Me Made May 2020 part 2

Hi there,

I needed to break up the me made may post just because of the sheer volume of information  and  of time involved.  I am not a fan of hours in front of a screen , so  I needed to break it up. Now we have the rest of the month Day 16, to Day 31 .

I hope you are well and safe and staying on top at this crazy time.

The more I am delving into the garments I have made , I am rediscovering those pieces I love and those I need to tweak . Over time  my taste has changed and also  my wardrobe requirements . I find these days (when I get back to work) that I am more often in pants and rarely in dresses even in Summer so my wardrobe will have to adjust accordingly. I am not wearing heels these days so hems need to be adjusted to reflect that. Versatility is the backbone of my creative process I love making things that can be worn a number of ways.

As we move into winter here in Australia I realise I have neglected my winter garments and need to up my game. I am spending a lot of time in my workroom but doing lots for others and not much for myself , time to readjust. I hope to have some new makes to show, and  will blog those I haven’t, It is time to get to work.

Take care, happy creating,

Sue 🙂
