MMM'13 - Signing Up

I, Gabrielle of UpSewLate sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ´13. I will endeavour to wear one handmade garment each day for the duration of May 2013, with no repeats. I wil also try to sew at least two more garments during the course of the month.

This will be my third MMM... I'm sticking with one handmade garment per day as in previous years , but this year I'll try to come up with outfits that I like and that I'll wear again after MMM.  So although it sounds the same, it'll be just a little harder for me, especially come week 4 :-). I'm not planning to blog about my daily outfits though - perhaps just a summary at the end of the month? I found it really time consuming last year and I'd prefer to share a couple of recent makes with you instead (a dramatic winter jacket!! red pants!!!). That's OK innit?

I do hate a post without pictures, so here are some of my better efforts from MMM'12:



Unfortunately my team recently moved from our beautiful light-filled offices by Barangaroo to a poky little space in the central CBD. I don't know that it's going to be a particularly photogenic area! You'll know I'm struggling with my MMM photos if I start posting this sort of thing:


  1. I share your pain! I have a lovely office in a boring industrial area with all male colleagues who don't know about my blog....not a lot of scope for photos there either!

    Just looking at your photos above, a few of your makes have made their way into my wardrobe. I wonder what inspiration I will getl this year!

  2. You had some beautiful pics last year so I hope you can achieve your goals this year. You never know. Your pics could be very arthouse.

  3. Lovely location photos, hope you will find some good spots for photos in CBD, although I can imagine that it would be difficult. By the way, I have been looking at your previous posts and your Elisalex dress looks party perfect!

  4. I think you have made stunning use of the environment for your photos - everything looks fantastic. Thr very bright suit against the grey skyline looks superb.

    I have nominated you for a Liebster Blog award. You can pick it up at my blog, and find out more about it, or you can pass, with no harm done :)
