Me-Made-May’15: Last 2 Weeks & Final thoughts!

Me-Made-May is over! And, as I did with the first two weeks, here are some photos of the garments I wore:

  1. Floral top, with my first raglan sleeves and the nightmare of sewing with chiffon…
  2. 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!
  3. Kimono: my second handmade garment! Also sewn by hand, but far easier than hemming that freaken skirt…
  4. You’ve already seen this bra, paired with these knickers!
  5. Floral skirt, with the same fabric as the kimono. I made it in my first patternmaking course, which was focused on skirts!
  6. Black pleated pants (from my second patternmaking course!) and the Mallori Lane bra as a crop top: perfect for a night out!

The Knock-Off Bra & the Lingerie Course

During the last weeks I’ve been attending to a Lingerie Course at Rosascrafts, with Lola Mata as teacher. It’s been really fun and I’ve learned a lot of things, while filling my lingerie drawer with hundreds of new bras and panties! 😉

As a final exercise to this first part of the course, we had to reverse engineering a RTW bra. In my case the Chosen One was a H&M soft bra, with a pretty design but some peculiar colours… It was pale pink (like baby-bedroom-pink) trimmed with light BROWN lace. Seriously, brown. I like brown, but, I mean, NOT for lingerie. Not THAT brown paired with THAT pink. (Dear H&M designers, what the **** were you thinking??!)

Anyway, since I didn’t take any photos of “The Thing” (your eyes should thank me), you’ll only have my version of it:

Lillian Bra Top & the Bra-A-Week Challenge!

Last week I joined the Bra-A-Week Challenge , organized by Erin. I participated with my Billie Bralette, but I didn’t say a thing here because… I was on holidays! 😀 I really liked the challenge experience: it’s a good way to improve your sewing by practicing week by week, but also a fantastic opportunity for watching other people’s work (and be so, so jealous of them!!) So, this week I’m going to participate with… the Lillian Bra Top!
