[WEEK 3]: MMMAY16 Round Up!

May 21, 2016 | Sewing Projects | 4 comments

Hi All!

Week 3 has already come to an end, how does time move so quickly? And I have to say that time slipped out too quickly this week, and I didn’t have time to get my indie make done. After fighting a terrible cold for the first half of the month (since when do colds go around in May??) the beautiful sunshine was too tempting for me this week, and I decided to give myself a break.

But that didn’t stop me from wearing some of my all-time favourite me-mades this week, mostly under-things of course 🙂

Here is my week in wears!

DAY 15
Absolutely adored wearing my new lace on the side boyshorts 🙂



DAY 16
This was a time to pull out a bra from earlier this year, my lace demi, and match it up with my new boyshorts! I think I’m getting addicted to the luxury of matching sets!



DAY 17
This was the first day that I had a non-sewing make, and since I was beading and beers night with the girls at The Emerald Studio, I thought it was fitting for this gorgeous bracelet to be my me-made of the day!


DAY 18
But of course I can’t stay away from my me-made lingerie for too long, and it was such a gorgeous day to wear my ‘in the nude’ bralette and high-waisted panty set, which is definitely a spring staple for me 🙂


DAY 19
More lingerie of course my black lace plunge bra, although this bra definitely needs to find a matching bottom in the future! Black lace on a Thursday is always good 🙂

DAY 20
This was a super fun day, out with mom and Gibby! wearing my off-the-shoulder pattern hacked Nettie Bodysuit from Closet Case Files, that I also made into a crop top. Perfect outfit to enjoy the sunshine!


DAY 21
Then I wrapped the week up with one of my bra staples, the black beauty 🙂 Always a favourite! 


Overall a fantastic week in the me-made life 🙂 It’s so nice to be doing this for the third year, and seeing how my me-made wardrobe has grown so much, and how I’m making more and more wearable staples and favourites!

I think there are still a couple gaps in my wardrobe, and I have to say, I’ve never felt quite so hungry to do some more regular clothes sewing, I’ve already dreamed up the next pair of Hudson pants that I want to make, and I’ve got my eye on so many more patterns! I’ll definitely have to find a few spare hours this summer for some clothes sewing, in between my lingerie & swim makes of course 😉

How are you doing with your me-made may goals? Found any gaps in your wardrobe? Feeling inspired by any patterns or fabrics?

I love hearing from you 🙂

    Bravo! You've been very busy. I love the lace demi and crop top. I made a few things but discovered fitting issues with my back and shoulders. Now I'm making a new muslin with all the adjustments. Soon I will be able to sew well-fitting tops for me.

      Thanks Jennifer! Fitting is always a challenge, but once you get the perfect pattern and get to wear your perfectly fitting clothes, it's all worth it!!! 🙂

    Your me-mades this week have been so pretty!! All the lacy lingerie seems so appropriate for the warmer weather! And your off-shoulder Nettie has convinced me even more about how much I need that pattern! 😉 Just the other day I was thinking that I missed an off-shoulder top in my wardrobe, and now I see this… It's definitely a sign! 😛
    I'll do my big round-up next week, with all the photos I've been taking of my me-made clothes! I haven't got any time for blogging this month because of my exams, but I finish them this wednesday!! YAY!! 😀

      Thanks Sofia! I can't wait to see your big round up soon!!
