Me-Made May Week 4 Wrap-Up!

Weeeeeek 4!  Almost there - just three more days to go!  I won't lie - I'm looking forward to the end of the mirror selfie.

This work-week was full of prints - with plain tees to cap off the weekends :)

I'll wrap up the end of Me-Made May later this week and write a post about my first MMM16 Experience then! :)

Day 22: Unfinished grey lark tee
Day 23: Orange Dotted Moneta Dress
Day 24: Green polka-dot fit & flare dress
Day 25: Dotted Adelaide Dress
Day 26: Flamingo Nita Wrap Skirt
Day 27: Fishy Scout Tee
Day 28: Striped Linen Scout Tee


Flamingo Nita Wrap Skirt

New skirt alert!!  I have been sooo lazy with getting this skirt up on the blog - I finished sewing it nearly 2 months ago!  I finally had the chance to wear it today as the weather has finally warmed up. When I bought this amazing Charley Harper fabric (from the lovely imagine gnats shop) I knew I wanted to make it into a skirt, I just couldn't decide which pattern.  Then!  Along came the Sew DIY Nita Wrap Skirt - a perfect match for what I had been thinking of!



Orange Dotted Moneta

Ahh!  I'm finally getting around to posting my most recent makes.  The weather outside is GORGEOUS so I took a whole bunch of photos of various items out on our balcony.  Soo... that's why all the photos in my next few posts will be eerily similar!  So - you've seen it a bunch in my Me-Made-May posts already, but here is my Orange Dotted Moneta Dress!


Me-Made May Week 3 Round-Up!

Week three already?!?! Holy crap!  This challenge has seriously been so much fun to participate in - and has started to become a little bit challenging.  If you follow me on instagram, you'll have noticed that there have been a number of repeat items showing up week-after week.  It's not that I don't have a bunch of other me-made things I could wear, it's just the temperature has been fluctuating enough that I'm not completely comfortable in my usual summer dresses :)  Also this week - the May-long (aka Victoria Day) weekend was this past weekend (wooo holiday Monday today!) so my husband and I took our now annual canoe camping trip to Charleston Lake Provincial Park.  Even though we were away camping, I was still able to sneak in a few me-mades!

Anyways, enough talk - here are my outfits from last week:

Day 15: Comfy polka-dotted chambray Fen Dress (not yet blogged)
Day 16: Orange Moneta dress!  Again!!
Day 17: Striped Lark Tee
Day 18: Dotted Adelaide Dress
Day 19: Fishy Scout Tee (also again!)
Day 20: Floral Lark Tee (yep - this one is a repeat too!)
Day 21: Camping edition - Constellation PJ's


Me-Made-May 2016 Week 2 Wrap-Up

Me-Made-May Week One Wrap-Up!

Me-Made-May 2016 is in full swing!  And so far, it really hasn't been that difficult to keep my promise of wearing at least one me-made thing each day.  Most days I actually wear 2 or more, if you can count pajamas ;)

Here's a look at what I wore each day, with Day 1 at the top left.

Day 3: Green Polka-Dot Dress (older make, so I haven't blogged about it!)
Day 5a: Orange Dot Moneta Dress (new!  will be blogged about soon!)
Day 6: Fishy Scout Tee (also new!  will be blogged about soon!)
Day 7b: Fishy Scout Tee (again!) and Purple Aztec Hudson Pants

'Phew!  Can you tell I like polka dots? 😉   This project has been so fun so far, and it's great to follow the hashtag and see everyone's makes on Instagram!  If you want to see my outfit posts day-by-day, hop on over to my Instagram feed!  I'm going to try and gets some photos that aren't mirror selfies... but they're just the easiest to take in the morning as I'm on my way out the door to work.  We'll see how next week goes!


Adelaide Dress Featured on the Colette Blog!!

Ahhh!  My Adelaide Dress I posted about not too long ago has been featured on the Colette Patterns blog as a part of their "Pattern of the Month" series. I'm just so pleased to be featured in such good company!  There are ladies in that list that I look up to in the sewing blog-o-sphere!
