Completed: McCall’s 5779 Blouse (1961) and Me Made May Weeks 2+3

I've actually made two things from a single pattern! I love the idea of these wardrobe patterns, and have always wanted to make all the pieces of one, so I'm now 2/3 of the way there-just the shorts left to go. This particular wardrobe is a "sports" wardrobe. This doesn't mean it was intended as… Continue reading Completed: McCall’s 5779 Blouse (1961) and Me Made May Weeks 2+3

MMM Week 1 and a Slow Sewing Project Update

For week 1, my one me-made outfit was my McCall's 6436, completed in 2019.

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
