Wrapping up Me Made May today! Some thoughts on the event and my wardrobe at the end of the pictures!
Me Made May Day 22:
Day 22 Verdict:
Perfect outfit for summer months! Everyone needs a Sante Fe top! And this pattern is on SALE for 15% off right now with the code SANTEFE15
Me Made May Day 23:
Day 23: First #unionsttee I ever made in @raspberrycreekfabrics #clubfabrics and RTW denim skirt. Day 24: (swipe) #wildflowertop modified for nursing and RTW skirt in a never wrinkles fabric! (What is it called anyway? 90% nylon 10% spandex) . . #memademay #mmmay17 #isew #selfishsewing #heyjunepatterns #blankslatepatterns
This was the very first v-neck Union Street Tee I made. Well, the very 1st any v-neck tee I made! And I love it!
Day 23 Verdict:
Love this shirt, here’s my review of the pattern.
Me Made May Day 24:
I sewed up the Wildflower Top from Blank Slate Patterns and even modified it to become nursing friendly.
Day 24 Verdict:
Unfortunately, this version didn’t work! Bur I think with some changes I could get this to work out. It would be such a good shirt for nursing!
Me Made May Day 25:
I wore my Jocole Peplum Top. This version was originally my wearable muslin.
Day 25 Verdict:
As with the other peplum top I wore this week, my waistline is not quite back to normal right now, and I’m going to keep blaming it on having a baby for several more months!
Me Made May Day 26:
Day 26 Verdict:
These two are in constant rotation!
Me Made May Day 27:
This navy blue Seafarer Top I made (unblogged) goes with just about everything in my skirt wardrobe! And this skirt is reviewed here.
Day 27 Verdict:
Mr. Skirt Fixation just purged his closet again…I think it’s time to make another one of these skirts!
Me Made May Day 28:
Day 28 Verdict:
I’m pretty sure that if these two garments ever wear out I’ll just make exact replicas so I can always wear them!
Me Made May Day 29:
Day 29 Verdict:
The fabric I used for this shirt was closeout from Hancock Fabrics, and it doesn’t have good recovery. This shirt gets pretty stretched out.
Me Made May Day 30:
My new Seafarer top (again!!!) and a refashioned skirt from several years ago.
Day 30 Verdict:
When it’s good, it’s good!
Me Made May Day 31:
A brand new Syrah Skirt (blog post coming soon!) made from this fantastic shibori dyed knit fabric from JoAnn (affiliate link) and (surprise, surprise) that same navy Seafarer!
Day 31 Verdict:
What I learned from Me Made May 2017:
I need to replace quite a few of the garments I made when I was learning to sew knits.
I need to sew with more solid colors more so I can pair things better.
I’m actually running short on Me Made skirts!
I need to find(or draft?) a good denim skirt pattern.
Do you have any suggestions for my “Me Made” wardrobe?
