What have I bought? - March and April

I am joining in with Elise again this month and actually have things to post about!

March was another big fat £0 spent. I did get some new to me clothes but they came from clearing out Mum's wardrobe so don't count.

April saw a couple of charity shop runs, we got rid of a lot of stuff last month and managed to only come back with these:

 A shirt that is too small for A but is in the refashion pile now! £2

100% lambswool jumper for me. £3

Another wool jumper that I plan to make into a cardigan. £2

A pair of Next linen trousers. £2

Next denim skirt. £2

A total spend of £11 and quite weather appropriate at the moment - freezing one minute and sunny the next!

Me Made May 2016

I am so late to this party but I have been trying to decide what I should pledge. I wear clothes I have made or refashioned every day anyway so this year I am going to focus on trying to find my style. I would love to have a wardrobe where things all matched and could we worn various ways, instead I have a crazy array of stuff in my wardrobe and I only wear about 25% of it regularly.

So, this year I pledge to wear something me-made every day and, over the course of the month, wear all the 'not sure' clothes at least once and get rid of them if they don't work.
