I’m still going strong with Me-Made-May and carefully going through my wardrobe to find the long-lost self-made item lurking in the back of the cupboard. So far so good but I think my options are running thin. I think one of the most challenging parts is providing photographic evidence of my daily outfit. So here goes for the second installation of Me-Made-May:
Tuesday 6 May 2014: Egyptian Jackie dress
Made from a piece of black and gold silk from the Fairy godmother stash that looks Egyptian. The pattern is from Burdastyle’s Sewing Vintage and Modern book.
Wednesday 7th May: Blue Ruffle shirt
A pattern that I cut off an existing shirt of mine (not a 100% flawless process). The fabric is a baby blue cotton shirting fabric.
Thursday 8th May: The Elizabeth skirt in Shwe Shwe
A pattern of my own (thanks to pattern-making classes) and contrasting green Shwe Shwe fabrics from Cape Town.
Friday 9 May (My birthday!): The Angela dress AND Sparkles
Angela is from Simplicity 2282 and is made from a fun colourful cotton twill. Sparkles is a very early project that isn’t even symmetrical…but the fabulous blue sequence fabric and silk lining makes up for it.
Saturday 10th May: Eye Blue Scarf
A quick scarf that I made just the other day.
Sunday 11 May: African Hope Wrap dress
Gorgeous brown lycra with an African embellishment. Pattern is the Hope Wrap Dress. (Maybe a little overdressed for the hardware store!)
Monday 12 May: Green Bamboo shift dress
You’ve heard all about this one…
Tuesday 13 May: Ruffle back skirt
My own pattern (needs a fun name…), blue floral cotton twill from a fabric market in Sydney a while back.
(the picture doesn’t do it justice)
Wednesday 14 May: Nautical Kasia
BurdaStyle’s Kasia High Waist Skirt pattern with a navy and white woven polyester and red twill constrast.
That’s all for now folks. See you soon. Happy sewing and wearing.
