Jumping on the bandwagon

Me-Made May 2013 is fast approaching and I'm jumping on the bandwagon.

I can go ahead and pledge to wear something that I created, everyday of the month, but I basically do that now. It really wouldn't be much a challenge. I will continue to wear my makes during the month of May but as Zoe put it I'm going to "up the ante."

I, Graca from Sew Essentially Sew, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '13. I endeavour to wear my creations each day for the duration of May 2013 (the easy part), photograph my outfits (the hard part) possibly laid out on the floor since that self-timer feature on my camera is enough to drive a gal batty and finish the UFOs that have been sitting in my sewing drawer by the end of Me-Made-May 2013 (the challenging part).
Okay, that's all I got.

Happy Sewing!


  1. Ooh, can't wait to see your outfits! I missed out last year but am so in this year!

  2. I just had an idea for photographing your outfits. Get some of those command adhesive hooks and attach them to a blank wall (a door could work too), you could have 3 or four, one for tops or dresses, 1 for skirts and pants and one for jackets and one for accessories. It would be much easier to photograph than the floor. This may not be the most brilliant idea ever, but I have only been awake for 10 minutes. 8-)


McCall's 7630: Pullover Top

It's an easy sewing project for a loose-fitting pullover top. It's my second go with this pattern and I still want to make another ...
