I really need to get better at this me-made photography. At the very least, I could post the full outfit instead of just waist up photos 🙁 I promise to improve!!
For week three, I opted for my anchor dress. On this particular day, it was hot here in Ohio and my air is still out, so easy, comfy clothes were the way to go.
My second outfit was yet another McCall’s M6754. For some reason, the solid green was a huge hit at work, even though I think the floral is a much better fit. The one was a very early make, and it shows in some of the extremely wonky stitching! Oh well, I still wear this stuff with pride.
I have to say…this challenge is a lot easier than I expected. As an added bonus, it’s really driving me to finish/mend some old projects I have lying around! I’m looking forward to sharing week 4 🙂 Happy sewing!
So I must confess: I only wore one me-made item the first week of May 🙁 In my defense, that week was only two days long, though…
Week one I opted for the lace tank from the Back With a Peplum post. At work, I cover up my half sleeves, so…also features a rtw cardigan. You’ll notice, I finally got around to finishing the neckline and arms with bias tape. Also, I have spectacles now! Though I don’t really need to wear them all the time, you’ll be seeing them often, as I’ve always wanted glasses.
For week two, I opted to wear two versions of McCall’s M6754, my go-to pattern. Expect to see more of these in the future, and probably a blog post about them 😉
The hardest part for me has been getting decent photos, obviously! My apologies for the low grade cell phone photography, I need to recruit someone to take photos for me. I hope you’re all having as much fun with this as I am! Happy sewing 🙂
I’m pretty excited to announce that I’ll be participating in Me-Made-May’15! What is Me-Made-May? It’s a challenge created by a wonderful sewing blogger, and you can read all about it here. I’ve already started sprucing up past makes in preparation!
Me-Made-May’15 is a bit of a custom challenge, in that each participant gets to define how often they’ll wear their garments. A no pressure, no stress challenge. How often am I doing it? Well, here’s my pledge:
“I, Ashley of Sewn By Ashley, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’15. I endeavor to wear at least two me-made garments each week for the duration of May 2015.”
Why only two? Well, a bit of my makes are winter or special occasion only, and I’m afraid I just don’t have enough garments yet to do it more often! All my upcoming projects are fairly complicated, so…those may be a little slow in coming. However, I’m looking forward to sharing some of my completed makes with you all!
