Me Made June 11

'I, Stevie of,
sign up as a participant of Me-Made-June '11.
I endeavour to wear one handmade item each day for the duration of June 2011'

Phew. I had better get cracking then! Otherwise June could be a very boring month!
I have finished (bar the zip, hem and armholes) My red white and blue dress. A few sneaky pictures later but i'm keeping it mainly under wraps until the London Blogger Meet.

After my little moodboards I immediately panicked when I made this pledge. 30 days!? How the hell am I going to do that!?
Out of everything I have made and everything I have planned to make so far I've worked out that it gives me... 7 dresses 4 skirts 3 tops 1 cardigan and 1 pair of trousers. When I wrote that, it seems quite a lot but I am a fussy one when it comes to my clothes, I have to be honest I'm more of a jeans and cardi girl. (Unless its winter and I can have wooly tights) I feel somewhat exposed in a dress even though I love them!
I am thinking the antidote could be knit tops and quick make ones at that! That way I can pair it with jeans most days without pushing my comfort zone too much this time around.
Heres all the top pattern contenders I own. I'm also thinking a fre cardi's like this New Look pattern,

Hopefully most of these can be made in multi versions like this one which would diversify my wardrobe and quickly! So I could bulk cut and make in batches.

I've never done a cowl neck but it was one of the pieces i'd really like to own, they are comfy and effortlessly stylish?
What are you planning for Me Made June?


  1. Looks like a cute line up of patterns (love the second New Look set). I'm planning on doing a couple of tops for Me Made June also, so I look forward to seeing what you do!

  2. Stevie I like all of it. I know what you mean about dresses although I yoyally lovr them, I don't really concider them everyday wear. I do really like the New Look patterns, they seem to have so much in just one little envelope.

  3. I really like the second set of New Look patterns - lots of scope for cute tops in there.


I love reading what you have to say!
