Me – Made – May’16!

It’s May already! And I’ve signed up for my second Me-Made-May! For those who aren’t familiar with it, Me-Made May is an initiative created by Zoe, of So Zo…What do you know?: every year she encourages every person, animal or thing who can sew to challenge themselves during the month of May. How? Well, it’s up to you, but a good way to do it is committing to wear certain number of handmade clothes each week. (You can see my experience last year here and here!)

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!

For those who aren’t familiar with it, Me-Made May is an initiative created by Zoe, of So Zo…What do you know?: every year she encourages every person, animal or thing who can sew to challenge themselves. During May, they should commit to wear  some garments made by  themselves. How many? It’s up to you (obviously, if you have to wear a uniform to work, you can’t show up wearing a colorful patchwork skirt…)
