[WEEK 1] MMMay16 Round up!

May 7, 2016 | Sewing Projects | 2 comments

Hi All!

It’s been a pretty good start to Me-Made-May this year, if I do say so myself 🙂

I did wake up with a bad cold on day 3, but I’m not letting it dampen my me-made spirits 🙂 It just gives me a chance to wear all my comfiest me-mades!

Here is my week in outfits!

DAY 1 
Red Bra & Matching Boyshorts Set- possibly my favourite thing ever


DAY 2 
Jacket Express from the Islander Sewing System- an old favourite!


A day to be sick and cozy in my me-made sweatpants, these are very old and very loved 🙂 




Another day to be sick and snuggle in my cozy sewing jammies with mr Gibby- (did you notice his hair cut, lol)!


My new indie pattern make! The Bethioua at the beach! 


DAY 6 
Feeling cool in my indie pattern make from last May- the Alexandria Peg Trousers! 


DAY 7 
Today was a day to be comfy, I’m still getting over my cold and I needed something snuggly to be with me all day, so I’m wearing my Winter Bralette & new boyshorts! 🙂 
It has been a good week in Me-Mades!!
It’s funny how much Me-Made-May inspires me to sew, I realize as soon as it starts that I’ve been suppressing all my clothes sewing urges and then suddenly it’s like ‘I want to make ALL the things!!, not just the under-things!!’
What have you been inspired to sew so far this May?
Talk to me in the comments!!

    After Week 1 of this year's Me Made, I'm definitely feeling the pressure of not having made any trousers/pants this past year!

    I love how MMM really forces us to wear what we've made so far- but also to recognize the gaps in our sewing. It offers a new opportunity for learning.

      Absolutely! It really makes all those gaps clear pretty quickly! And I realized at the start that I needed more comfy basics! 🙂
