Today is the last day of Me-Made May. I can’t believe that happened. I actually was able to participate and keep my goal for MMM12. I started off with only having 2 completed me-made garments in my wardrobe and now I have 5 garments. I also have another garment on the way. How exciting!!
Here is the round-up of my Me-Made May 2012
Week 1: Pants – New Look 6510
Week 2: Skirt – Burda 8176
Week 3: Circle Skirt – Dana Made It tutorial & T-shirt Scarf – Hello Giggle tutorial
Week 4: Striped Tee – Sewaholic Renfrew Top
Week 5: Batwing Top – McCall’s M6510
One of the reasons why I do not have a lot of me-made garments in my wardrobe is because I actually tend to make things for other people. For me it’s just seems much easier to complete projects for others than myself. Deadlines help. I don’t generally have a deadline for myself.
So… I asked some of my friends to wear something me-made during the month of May and photograph it for me.
Cute Baby Liam rocked this dotted bib that I made for him on May 4. I made this, with a set of other baby items back in January. We didn’t even know he was going to be a cute little boy, so I picked something I thought was gender neutral. To see more of the set, click here.
My best friend, Cass is wearing a skirt that I made her during the Month of September for the BurdaStyle Sew Along. It is the Skirt with Front Pleat pattern from Burdastyle. Cass wore her skirt on May 16.
On May 16th as well, my good friend Jen wore a bracelet that I made her a couple of years ago for x-mas. This came with a purse I made for her with interchangeable wrist straps. This one is the bracelet strap. You can see the whole set here.
Now, I need to work on my Colette Spring/Summer Palette. I am very much behind. I have the top finished, the skirt being fitted and the cape cut out. It looks like the summer semester is not very long so, I should be able to get some of the garments in my palette completed. SHOULD!!!
This weekend, I won’t be able to get much sewing done because I have to be social. Tomorrow is the fashion show at my school and then birthday gatherings. This kind of makes me sad.
