More selfies! Way fewer are in a real-world setting (my apartment after work is usually what happens), and there is a gradual improvement in quality as I realize that BOY HOWDY the front camera on my phone really sucks.
There also is about a 500% increase in appearances from Grumble the dog. Which is as it should be.
I tried to take selfies to capture the me-mades in the wild, but guys, I really hate selfies. So some of them are comical.
This picture shows the first time I made a me-made garment to a significant public event — in this case, to a friend’s wedding in May 2013. I figured there was about a 30% chance it was going to disintegrate at some deeply humiliating moment, perhaps while I was standing in line at the buffet.
It didn’t. I even got a compliment on it.
But now it’s 2015, and I don’t worry about that anymore. That’s big! I no longer consider it a possibility that my clothing will literally fall apart once I’m more than a mile from my apartment! That’s what 2014 did for me.
Having a blog opens up all sorts of fun sewing possibilities — like participating in OWOP 2014, coordinated this year by Handmade Jane. I love seeing how people style their makes, so I wanted to add my two cents. Hey, maybe next year I’ll be ambitious enough to try Me-Made May.
