This is my #memademay for today. This is a #willowtank I made using white muslin and a little embroidery to add a feminine touch. It's the perfect cool, breezy top for the start of summer. #makersforfashionrev #whomademyclothes #mmmay17

This was the hardest blog post I've ever written. It's taken me a year, because I kept getting stuck on the fact that I fail at this all the time. I'd love your thoughts, your experiences with it, and part of me wants you to tell me that I've got it all wrong... It's called "Slow Fashion - Enough is as good as a feast". This photo is a photo of my actual wardrobe - this is most of my tops, frocks and jackets. I'll let you tell me if it's enough. #stash_less #slowfashionmovement #slowfashionoctober #makersforfashionrev

I love the message behind #makersforfashionrev Emily @inthefolds has a great post up today that I highly suggest you check out. Today's prompt is #imakemyownclothes ❤️ To be honest I started sewing from my need to create and from my love for fashion design. Now almost 20 years later, I'm an indie pattern designer. I know the the terrible environmental effects caused by mass production of cheap clothing and goods. Because of that...I believe in sewing with high quality materials that will last. I believe in constructing a garment with beautiful finishes. I believe in making what you need and gifting garments that you don’t. I believe in teaching my children to sew. I am proud that #imakemyclothes and of this community of makers.

This week is Fashion Revolution week established in commemoration of the Rana Plaza disaster - I'm not taking part in the activities this year, but I thought it only fitting to lend my support to this very worthy cause. It saddens me how few people in my country know (or care) about the implications of fast fashion - in fact most of us support it by flying into neighbouring countries to buy factory produced clothing at dirt cheap prices. Make an effort to learn about who made your clothes and the conditions under which they were made and voice out to clothing companies if you disagree with their practices! @fash_rev #makersforfashionrev

#makersforfashionrev Day 5 - Other People's Trash. We happily buy other people's trash - I love finding a real treasure. Here's a selection of some of my fabric and clothing finds. Skirt refashioned from a dress, vintage Hawaiian fabric, Levi jacket which I don't think had ever been worn, fabulous selvedge denim jeans, tiny floral dungarees made by me from secondhand fabric using the vintage pattern on the right which was also found in a charity shop, leather jacket which I successfully hand washed to avoid dry cleaning, paintbrush fabric still waiting to be sewn, man's shirt refashion (back view) for #therefashioners2015 #whybuynew

Supporting #makersforfashionrev to say #whomademyclothes, well #imademyclothes and I have been since my early teens. I make because I like to wear something individual to me in a cloth of my choice. I make because I know what suits me and what I want to wear. I make because I'm 6ft and slim with a big bust so nothing shop bought has ever fitted properly. I make because I don't like half of the badly made overpriced clothes in the shops. I make because I get a lot of pleasure from doing so. I also make because I know no one suffered making what I wear. #fashrev

I made a shirt today and David took this model pic for me.

Also, this is Fashion Revolution week marking the fourth anniversary of the Rana Plaza clothing factory collapse in Bangladesh. Time to ask #whomademyclothes and demand greater transparency in the fashion supply chain. Check out fashionrevolution.org for more info.

I make my own clothes! And I share my skills, and learn new ones, each day with our team of 3 artisans here in beautiful Malawi - Africa. #imakemyownclothes #fashrev #whomademyclothes #makersforfashionrev #memade @fash_rev @inthefolds

Last week was a killer week of work, but I got through it and came up with these new bag combinations. 💙 Misty blue vintage salmon skin & reclaimed chocolate leather. On the reverse side of each bag is the leafy & floral laser etchings illustrated by my fabulous friend @josefmcfadden. Ive been super busy over the last few weeks speaking to different companies about picking up their off cuts+waste as well damaged fabrics. When I set out a year ago I definitely didnt anticipate that I would be investing so much time in repurposing fabrics, it does make the entire process a lot slower, but its completely changed my creative process. I now look at whats in front of me and go from there, kind of like drawing but with fabric. Coming from uni where designing everything was much more calculated and set out, its really liberating.
Bags are available to buy at @smeaton_farmandestate until 13th August💛

THIS SKIRT IS MADE FROM RECYCLED PLASTIC. I mean, that's mad isn't it?! You might remember that I bought this @offset_warehouse fabric from @fabricationshackney last month, and was asking for pattern suggestions? Well I can only apologize because while I gave your ideas a lot of thought (I promise I did!) I stubbornly went my own way and made a gathered skirt anyway 😳 more about it on the blog now.

Because I couldn't sleep and because it's been so hot I need a couple tee dresses. #mariadenmark #kirstenkimonotee hacked to a below the knee dress length in a yummy cotton jersey from #quiltessentials in Auburn.

Day 31: We made it! Both literally AND metaphorically! Today I'm wearing my worsted wool gathered shirt with leggings and a RTW top and I'm jumping for joy at having participated and succeeded in my first MeMadeMay!

It has been an absolute pleasure from beginning to end - and, to be honest, loads easier than I thought it would be. Even convincing @davidmatthewsteed, @sammygodley, @fereusemalakeh and @agiliepniece to take my photos wasn't THAT hard - thanks guys 😘😘😘 I've so enjoyed making my first meaningful connections with the sewing community, who I've found to be overwhelmingly passionate, supportive and kind. Their talent and creativity is inspiring and their enthusiasm is hugely encouraging. So much so that I'm considering starting a blog... Thoughts?! #memademay #mmmay17 #memademay17 #memadeeveryday #handmadewardrobe #sewingaddict #sewcialists #day31 #makersforfashionrev #slowfashion #imademyclothes #handmade #jumpingforjoy #gatheredskirt #sewingblogger

Day 30: The end of May is so damn close! Today I'm wearing my self-drafted pleated peplum top with an exasperated look that says "@davidmatthewsteed you're not going back to your documentary until we get a photo, so quit your whinging". I'm soooo grateful for his help... 😘😘😘 #ungratefulgirlfriend #memademay #mmmay17 #memademay17 #memadeeveryday #handmadewardrobe #sewingaddict #sewcialists #day30 #makersforfashionrev #slowfashion #imademyclothes #handmade #exhausted #peplumtop

Day 29: #sewingcleo green dungaree dress, specially coordinated with this window... 🌿🌼🌿🌼🌿 #memademay #mmmay17 #memademay17 #memadeeveryday #handmadewardrobe #sewingaddict #sewcialists #day29 #makersforfashionrev #slowfashion #imademyclothes #handmade

Day 28: Back in my self-drafted striped pencil skirt, styled with a plain black tee and this amazing beaded necklace I bought last week at @pop_up_vintage at #allypally. I think it might be Mexican, but if anyone knows otherwise I'd be interested to know!
PS. Excuse my unbelievably pasty legs.

Day 27: Posing with Patsy in my self-drafted princess seam top with contrast peplum and ruffles. Can I have extra points for the #houseofhackney #flightsoffancy cushion, with handmade piping? And another bonas point for tea in my @robryantown mug from @charlottejvogel, not because I made it, but just because it's beautiful?

Day 26: Today is HOT, so I'm wearing my #sewingcleo dress again with a simple white t-shirt from M&S and mint-green clogs for a sewing date with my lovely friend @salisburyrachel, who took this photo and scored 10 points for enthusiasm.
We started with a fabric buying trip in Walthamstow, followed by lunch at @thehornbeamkitchen and then some pattern deciphering/cutting out at mine. Photos of progress to follow... 😁

Day 25: Third appearance for my me-made suede skirt, teamed with a RTW top and some of my favourite earrings (in case you hadn't noticed, I'm really into spangly Pat Butcher earrings. The bigger the bloody better...) Also, second day I persuaded @agiliepniece to take my picture 💪 admittedly I bribed her with ice cream, but needs must... 🍦🍦🍦 #patbutcherearrings #number1 #suede #suedeskirt #memademay #mmmay17 #memademay17 #memadeeveryday #handmadewardrobe #sewingaddict #sewcialists #day25 #makersforfashionrev #slowfashion #imademyclothes #handmade #isew #ilovesewing

Day 24: Self-drafted mellow yellow sun dress, made from another charity shop curtain. Just call me Maria Von Trapp. This one uses the same bodice as my peplum tops, but I've added a waist band and extended the peplum to create a gathered midi-skirt. Thanks @agiliepniece for reluctantly taking this photo 😒

Day 23: I made this self-drafted gathered skirt to wear to a wedding in October last year. It's probably a bit much for work, but there are worse things than being over-dressed. The top layer is embroidered and appliqued maroon chiffon and the underskirt is a sort of pink/purple iridescent polyester satin. Both purchased from Walthamstow Market. Best bit? The chiffon has a decorative selvedge, so there was no need to hem it! Thanks @sammygodley for the photo.

Day 22: Summer's here and I'm celebrating by going sleeveless! (Please don't look too hard at my bingo wings 🙆) Wearing my elephant 🐘print #NewLookK6184 again, teaming it with a wooden beads and vintage fisherman's basket I bought a couple of years ago from a junk shop in Frinton 🐚

Day 21: Self-drafted pin-striped top with peplum. Fabric from @fabricsgalorelondon. Posing in the Palm Court 🌴🌴🌴 of beautiful #alexandrapalace where we were hanging out for the #popupvintagefairslondon. It was great, and I bought some beautiful vintage fabric - stay tuned to see what I do with it...😏 Excuse my crazy face here. I'm all like "Huh? What?". Turns out that was because Billy from #eastenders was walking past behind me, and @davidmatthewsteed was pointing him out in hushed tones. So now I can claim a #celebritycameo for #memademay!

Day 19: It's the re-emergence of my spring-green denim @tillybuttons #sewingcleo dress. I love how it matches these vintage razzle-dazzle earrings 💎

Day 18: Back to my charity-shop-curtain #NewLookK6184 (plus sleeves, minus leggings...) As you can tell, I'm LOVING Boomerang at the moment. But then again, it captures the movement of the skirt (and my twitchy feet 👡, as captured by the sublime @yesmoa)
