I LOVE refashioning. Or upcycling. Or whatever you call it. It is such a good idea to make something new out of something old (hm, something we also do at my work.. i see a pattern here 😉 )
Last month there was the Restyling exchange of Pilar and Amy Nicole and I was so thrilled because the more the merrier and I love to see everyones take on what to make out of something excisting.
They asked you to send a garment (which you have but don’t wear) to your swap partner and vice versa, and to make something out of it for the other one. And that scared me to bits.
Because sewing for myself: excellent!
For my loved ones: fine!
For some one I don’t know? Only through Instagram? OMG!
So I refashioned in spirit of the Restyling Exchange.
What did I have?
A XXXXXL denim button down men shirt.
And an polyester jersey infinity scarf

Hi there! MeMadeMay was a blast, but also gave me an overdose of pictures of my outfits & myself. It was TOO much at the end. So I couldn’t bring myself writing any blogposts.
But I did some sewing! I finished my Itch to Stitch Bonn shirt, made my second Miette skirt, lengthened the Larktee pattern for a lovely tshirtdress and refashioned a XXXXL buttondown men shirt into a dress. The latter two I will show in another blogpost.

It’s May 16th and I documented my outfit almost every day. I am pretty impressed by myself, because normally i’m not really dutifully 🙂
For every day (except one) I wore at least one Me Made garment and still haven’t worn every garment i made! I’m very proud of it, because I’m sewing since September 2015 so that’s 1,5 years now.
Also I’m good at thrifted clothing. My jeans are mostly from garage sales/ thriftshops. And all my RTW clothes are with me for a long, long time. Lees verder “Halfway MeMadeMay”
It is almost May and that means it’s time for MeMadeMay!
Last year I tried to join, but because I only started sewing 4 months earlier, I didn’t have much me made clothes.
This year I’m in for real.
Well, I did took the pledge at Zoë’s Blog (the organizer of MMMay17)
I, Niki, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’17. I endeavour to wear a MeMade garment each day for the duration of May 2017 and to discover which garments i’m missing in my wardrobe. I want to have a sewing plan for the “missing” garments at the end of May.
