Besides finding May has crept up on me, I have really struggled with whether I should join the Me-Made-May 2016 challenge this year, as I do wear my handmade clothes and jewellery the majority of the time.
So I have been trying to think of a challenge or two and have come up with the following pledge:-
“I, Sharon from Petite & Sewing, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’16;I will wear handmade clothing (except lingerie) for the duration of May. My challenge is to finish the Burda wool jacket I started in January this year as well as lengthening the 3/4 sleeves on my Miette cardigan.”
The jacket is the same jacket as Kristy has made, Burda 7286 and I took it to Camp Sew & Sew;in Armidale back in January to get fitting assistance as well as spending some time with some fantastic ladies.
Now my Miette cardigan has only been worn this once back in May 2014 when I noticed that the lace pattern at centre front was wrong! So it has been frogged, and reknitted, however in my haste I forgot to lengthen the sleeves as 3/4 does not work with this warm wool, I need long sleeves.

Both of these garments will be very useful as the weather cools down so this challenge is perfect.
Now to try and keep up with what is happening on the Flickr Group.
