Me Made May: Frocks of Fancy

Let's face it, dresses are my kryptonite! It is almost impossible to find unique dresses that are also well-made so they are always top of my to-make list. Here we'll see my MMM/J/SSS dresses that have since been retired. These aren't even all the dresses I've ever made! There are a few that came out… Continue reading Me Made May: Frocks of Fancy

Me Made May Days 11, 13, and 16

It's dress week (except for this one that I wore during "tops" week)! I got tripped up this past week by getting my second vaccine dose. I was pretty sure I would have a stronger reaction than some people because of my auto-immune condition, so it wasn't a surprise, I just didn't think about the… Continue reading Me Made May Days 11, 13, and 16

Me Made May: To All The Tops I’ve Worn Before

Tops might be what I've made the most of over the years. Dresses require essentially twice as much work, and pants have always intimidated me. Skirts, while easier to fit, are not something I wear much, so they definitely don't "top" my count of tops. Hyuck, hyuck, hyuck. MMM '11 Tops Round-Up In 2010, the… Continue reading Me Made May: To All The Tops I’ve Worn Before

Me Made May ’21 Days 4-5

I have no photo for days 4 and 5 because this tee I've been wearing has been relegated to undershirt status. The white fabric pilled, and it has started to get holes. It was made in 2016 from the Hey June Handmade Lane Raglan Tee pattern (which has cup sizes!) and has been worn a… Continue reading Me Made May ’21 Days 4-5

Me Made May ’21 Day 2

The second day of May was really warm, so I went full on summer with my outfit. This top, made from McCall's 6436, is much younger than yesterday's top. The pattern is one of those great ones with cup sizes which they don't seem to be doing much anymore. I made it in 2018, finishing… Continue reading Me Made May ’21 Day 2

Me Made May ’21 Day 1

MMM '21, photo by author. For day 1 I pulled out one of my oldest me-mades. In the summer of 2010, I made two versions of Simplicity 2415, and I later made a third version in flannel. It needed some tweaking to not look too balloony or boxy, so I put full length darts in… Continue reading Me Made May ’21 Day 1

Me Made May 2021 Pledge: An 11 Year Retrospective

I checked So Zo's blog around March to see if there was going to be any MMM challenge this year, but didn't see anything and then promptly forgot about it, because, well full-time graduate school pushes everything else aside. Being in graduate school also means that I've had little sewing time over the past two… Continue reading Me Made May 2021 Pledge: An 11 Year Retrospective
