- Floral top, with my first raglan sleeves and the nightmare of sewing with chiffon…
- Blue skirt: my first handmade garment ever! Is pretty simple, but I didn’t have a sewing machine back then… I hemmed this damn thing by hand!
- Kimono: my second handmade garment! Also sewn by hand, but far easier than hemming that freaken skirt…
- You’ve already seen this bra, paired with these knickers!
- Floral skirt, with the same fabric as the kimono. I made it in my first patternmaking course, which was focused on skirts!
- Black pleated pants (from my second patternmaking course!) and the Mallori Lane bra as a crop top: perfect for a night out!

As Zoe, the creator of Me-Made-May, promised, this challenged has made me think about my handmade clothes. While the first two weeks the kind of handmade garments I chose to wear the most were underwear, during the last two weeks I’ve dared to bring to light more “visible” clothes. And… it’s been a success! Knowing that you’re wearing a one-of-a-kind garment, made by you, produces a unique feeling. No RTW piece of clothing can achieve that sensation, no matter how expensive it could be. That’s why I’d like to encourage you to wear more of your handmade garments on a daily basis. And if you still haven’t learned to sew… what are you waiting for? 😛
And you? Have you enjoyed Me-Made-May as much as I have?
