Pictured this week are the (starting from the top right counterclockwise) mermaid bikini with flower top, dreaming in silk bra, gingham retro bathing suit, ivory lace bra, zig-zag sport bikini & black lace body suit.
Okay, so May didn’t go quite according to my #MMMAY16 goal. I really wanted to be able to to make an indie pattern every week, and wear and photograph something different everyday, but alas, even the best plans don’t always go as you wanted. I’m pretty happy with how well I did, and I still have lots of plans to get making those indie patterns this summer (there may or may not be a cut and ready to sew Carolyn pyjama pattern sitting in a heap at the end of my ironing table). But May was just not the month to do it all! I had other things to do in May!
What I have been doing in May is getting sick (boo!), spending time with friends and family in the beautiful spring weather (yay!). And getting a whole pile of work done! I’ve had so many new products come in, and I’m in the middle of putting so many new things up!
A gorgeous microfiber laminated foam imported from France, I can’t wait to use it in all my swimwear this month <3, you’ll see the first swimsuit tomorrow!
Also I have some other bits for swimwear :
And I’ve added another size to my triangle bikini cups! I now have them in small, medium and large with 5″, 6″ and 7″ cross-cups!
Not to mention I’m going to be releasing a TON of new swimwear to buy by the meter and in swimwear kits!!
And another exciting release! The Orange Wire!!
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!
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 🙂
There is my round-up for Week 2 of Me-Made-May 2016!
I’m finding that it’s much easier this year than it was last year, after a full year of the Bra-A-Week Challenge!
How is your Me Made May going? What challenges have you found? Still sticking to your goal?
Let me know!
It’s time for my second indie pattern make of Me Made May! And I’m SO happy I chose this pattern I love it!
This week I made the Hudson Pants from True Bias .
I made them using a deep fuchsia, thick stretch knit with this subtle zig-zag texture. For the waistband, cuffs and pocket detail I used a thin ribbed grey knit, I’m really loving this dark grey and fuchsia combo.
These pants are supremely comfy, the only modification that needed to be made was to add 1 1/2 ” to the length because I’m pretty tall. I think the fit is pretty spot!
I think my favourite thing about these pants is that they still look chic enough to go out in, not just your stay at home track pants.
I feel like that’s all I can say about these pants! They came together so quick and easy, Mom and I tag-teamed, one pinning while the other serged, one topstitching while the other cut out the cuffs- and poof, they were done!
Have you made the Hudson Pants before? What do you think?
How is your Me-Made-May coming along? Have you found any gaps in your me-made wardrobe yet?
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!
