Me Made May Week 1 Round Up

I have to say that I have never been so diligent with Me Made May. I am really having a blast wearing a hand made item every single day. Also as it would turn out my fear over not having enough items to wear seems to be unfounded. I have just been madly sewing everything I can get my hands on. 

Day 1: Polka Dot/Wonderbread Dress


This is my Gertie's shirtwaist dress. From my post humbled by a dress.

Day 2: Teacup Dress


I know everyone is shocked that I would be at Joann's buying more fabric but it happened, deal with it. This is my teacup dress. I just did a photo shoot with it and it's was awesome. Post soon.

Day 3: Cowl Collar T-Shirt


This is a new pattern I'm working on. I copied it from a t-shirt that my mom sent me. I'm changing and perfecting it currently. I really love it and I wore it when we took our work study students roller skating. It was fun and breezy. 

Day 4: McCalls 4769


This is my absolute favorite shirtdress pattern of all time. It just works. I'll be posing about this beauty soon. 

Day 6: Butterick B6094


I made this one for Gertie's latest contest celebrating the release of her fabric line available at Joann Fabrics. I painstakingly matched the patterns on this dress. I love how it came out.

Day 6: Simplicity 1587


This dress is a mock up for a dress I'm making for my friend Semler. I love it! It was really comfortable. I definitely would've needed more fabric if the fabric had been directional. 

Day 7: Sleeveless Bow Back Shirt



This shirt reminds me of my grandmother. It's classy with clean lines. It was fun to wear. I love the bow detail at the back. It's from the same pattern I draped to make my polka dot chambray dress for the spring for cotton sew along.

Day 8: Spring For Cotton Dress


Speaking of my spring for cotton dress. I love this dress and I think it looks really great in my wife's garden at our home in Virginia.

I am so loving this challenge for May. It has encouraged me to really push my makes to the front of my wardrobe. I've also felt an increased level of inspiration for creating my own things! Till next time!
