Me-Made-May: Still Going strong

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!)
