#MMMay14 Week 2 Round Up!


Hi All!

Week 2 of MMMay was a very busy week for me! It was filled with lots of bra-making, lots of driving and best of all lots of mom & me time!

And this is what I wore for my busy week!

       

DAY 4

A Lazy Sunday spent packing with my mom for our week at BoobCamp- My me-make of the day is the stripped hoodie- so comfy! blog post about the sweater 🙂

Getting in all the snuggles I can with the Finnabon. 🙂 Do you make nicknames for your dog? Our dogs name is Finnigan, but I call him Finnabon, mom calls him Mr. Finnigan and my sister calls him Findaloo- no real reason..

DAY 5

The first day of BoobCamp, I wanted to be comfy and it was a pretty mild day outside so I wore my very favourite ‘Jacket Express’ Islander Sewing System Jacket

 I felt pretty cool walking into BoobCamp with a semi-me-made outfit on.

But this is how I felt when I got home, so tired from a day full of learning!

DAY 6 

On Day 6 I was luck enough to start wearing my newly made bras! This is the first one I made! Still in love with this colour scheme, and it was a first time for me working with lace, so that was a bit of a learning curve, but one that I liked since I couldn’t leave any of my bras without a little lace!

Here is me sewing this up on the first day!

DAY 7 

On day 7 I was all about comfort, so I threw on my leggings and this top that I made. I copied the pattern off a cheap top I bought in the mall that went all pilled after about 3 wears

It has a knit front and back, with poly-chiffon side panels. I love the high-low style!

DAY 8

Another day and another bra! I got to wear my second bra-make on day 8!! I think this one might be my favourite of them all- I just can’t get enough lace!

And here it was the day before, all cut-out and waiting to be made!

DAY 9

Last day of BoobCamp and my last bra-make of the course (although there is one in progress!)

I was really thrilled with how this foam-cup bra turned out, I’m definitely going to make another one of these and this time I will make it with a strapless option!

Still more lace- Between me, mom and Sonia we were definitely the lace-lovers table!

DAY 10

Today, coming home from BoobCamp, I wanted a simple way to give some style to my outfit while I maneuvered Costco and driving through Toronto with mom- so I opted for this statement necklace I made a week or so ago.

I love a statement necklace to really just bring a simple black tank up a notch! I love jewelry making- gotta have my bling!

I’ll probably do a tutorial on this soon, it was ridiculously easy to make!

But those were my outfits and my me-makes of Week 2, can’t wait for Week 3!

How is your MMMay going? are you making your pledge?

Let me know in the comments!

    Hope you don't mind me asking but how did you find the teaching at your class…was the pace too slow..hard for folks to catch up? I often wonder with various sewing levels how they manage to meet everyone's needs.

    Also I have the same Bernina as you have in the picture..but not a lot feet. Which feet did you find useful in your bramaking classes? Thanks. Yvette.

      Hi Yvette! I love questions!

      I found the teaching in the class to be amazing! The class sizes are very small (we had 8 and that's a full house) so everyone really gets fairly individual instruction. For my class we had Beverly, but we also had one of her assistants Denise who was amazing at answering all questions and keeping track with what stage everyone was at- and there was a lot of diversity in our class- some people were new bra sewers, some people jumped right ahead to more advance techniques- you really could work at your own pace and get all the attention you need.

      Also about the machine feet- you really don't need many- I only use 3 – the regular (and I like to have a teflon foot), a zipper foot (which is useful for getting close to put the back hooks on) and I like a stitch-in-the-ditch foot to help with topstitching on the cups. But that is all- no fancy feet required- and you could definitely make a bra with just a regular foot.

      Thanks for the questions!

    What a great me-made week! Boob camp looked fun and you got to share it with your mom 😀 awesome.
    we have nickname's for our puppy too, her real name is Nala but my hubs calls her "nalason" and that has branched off to "sonson" lol. I loved the picture of you and the pooch!

    Ps hope you don't mind the personal question, but are you of irish ancestry? You look the epitome of Erin as in Ireland… But now you'll probably tell me you're from Poland or Brazil! Feel free to ignore this question!

      I love getting questions!- and I do have Irish ancestry! Irish-Scottish-English, so they are all pretty close! I almost feel like I got a little extra of the Irish though because of my rosy cheeks and green eyes.

    You're right – the pink bra is awesome. Good way to conquer MMM! I'm not doing it (mostky laziness) but I am making an effort to sew every day. Yay!

      I was a little intimidated to try it at first, but I included bags and jewelry to make it a little easier on myself. It's great that you're making an effort to sew everyday! Maybe you can join the next one!
