me-made may '12

Hello all!  I'm just recovering from a 2 week holiday out of the country, the reason for my bloggy silence of late.  It was a tremendous trip to Cape Town, South Africa, which I will be posting many pictures of soon.  I just need to get organized, but in the meantime, for the first time, I'm jumping on the Me-Made bandwagon! 


So, Zo is doing it again, and I'm super excited, as I've watched the progress in the past, but never felt ready.  However, the last few months, I've realized, I usually wear something Me-Made everyday anyway, and I'm hoping this challenge will push me to know my wardrobe better:  holes in it, what goes with what, and accessorizing (of which I'm terrible at).

So, without further ado,

I, Jill, of The Sew Alongs, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '12. I endeavour to wear at least one Me-Made garment each day for the duration of May 2012


Watch out this week, as I post pictures of my trip, lots of me-made travel wardrobe, fabric (!), plus, baboons!

Ozzie, keenly aware of how much of my time Me-Made will take from him.  
This is all the excitement  he could muster.


  1. Cool! I can't wait to see photos of your trip!

  2. Welcome Jill!!
    I was thinking it was strange not to see you in the blogosphere...
    I can´t wait to see your pictures! Did you buy many fabrics?

  3. Exciting! I wish I had enough sewn pieces to do Me Made May.
