Me Made May and Lekala 4315

Posted on

So May is upon us which in the sewing community means Me Made May.  I haven’t done it for a couple of years, partly time constraints, partly because I hate taking photos of myself, and partly because my wardrobe options were limited.

At least the last of these reasons is no longer valid so I am going to try this year.  

‘I, Frenchfancy of frenchfancymakes.wordpress.com, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’17. I endeavour to wear at least one me made item each day for the duration of May 2017’  And I will try and take photos (but no promises there.

So to start with on this the 1st day of May I am wearing Lekala 4315

I made this a couple of years ago.  I don’t wear it very often because the thick ponte it is made of is too thick in summer, and the short sleeves make it not perfect for winter.  Added to that I never quite know what to wear it with.

It is very comfortable though, and it is chilly for the time of year so this fits the bill for today.

Lekala 4315

It is an easy make, I did it all on the serger.  I like the collar detail, in fact I’m not sure why I haven’t made another one.

There seem to be a few drag lines at the back, but that may just be how I’m standing.

I’m not promising detailed posts for all of May, in fact knowing me my next post will be in May 2018!
