Me made may week 4

I ran out of suitable me mades this week. I re-wore my caramel cardigan, my self-drafted mohair jumper and my leopard scarf.

Today the sun has come out and I am heading to a barbecue so I am taking full advantage and pulled on my modified simplicity 2281 dress (blogged here). I have added a bit of casualness with my wear everywhere denim shirt. I really should find a good shirt pattern and make my own someday, soon.

Me-Made-May 2016- week 2

Monday 9th May- Vogue 1287. I thought I had blogged this dress but I hadn't. I did blogg a yellow jersey version here. This version is made from a some sort of poly/viscose mix which is nice except it has a slightly odd but not unpleasant smell when wet. 

Tuesday 10th May- georgette cowl neck top. Blogged here

Wednesday 11th May- blue mohair/silk knit top. I made this top up as I went along. It is basically shaped like an uppercase T with no waist shaping or anything complicated. It is made from Rowan kidsilk haze and was very cozy for a spring day. I wish I had made it baggier, especially the sleeves, which would have been avoided with a bit more planning. The edging is done in moss stitch with the yarn doubled. The rest is single strand stocking stitch. 

I failed the rest of the week. Spent the weekend doing DIY in some old splattered jeans.

Me Made May- Week one

I have not sewn much in the last two years and didn't take part in MMMay inn 2014 or 2015 and my me made wardrobe has shrunk depressingly. Thinking back to MMMay 2013, it is sad to see that quite a few me mades have passed over to the other side. More room in the wardrobe for new stuff! 

Round up of the week. 

Tuesday 3rd and Wednesday 4th: Red linen skirt 

Thursday 5th- Vogue 1287

Friday 6th- Self-drafted jersey dress and wool book bag

7th May: Simplicity 2250

8th May: Simplicity 2186
