Me Made May Round Up

This was my first year doing Me Made May. I only started sewing three years ago so up until now RTW has still made up quite a big proportion of my wardrobe however this year I figured that since 99% of my wardrobe is me made, I would take on the challenge of documenting it. Of course, the hardest part is taking a picture every day, so while I avoided selfies, a couple snuck in.
My challenge to myself was to wear everything I’ve made, and aim to wear something different every day. Lately I have only been wearing my favourites and so this encouraged me to wear some of my lesser loved makes, and actually I think it’s made me like some of them a bit more. I only rewore three outfits (excluding pyjamas) so I’d say that’s a win. 
A huge stroke of luck was that the weather changed in the U.K. from mid May, so I had my winter and summer wardrobe to play with. There were only 2 dresses that I’ve made that I didn’t actually wear because they are rather Christmassy. 
So here is my round up of my own makes followed by some inspiring posts from other sewcialists. 



BELOW L to R: Emery dress by Christine Haynes, Margot pyjamas by Tilly and the Buttons, m7542 top by McCall’s Pattern Co, Moana top by Papercut Patterns, Elisalex dress by By Hand London (bodice); Emery dress by Christine Haynes (skirt/sleeves)

And here’s a small selection of some of my favourite posts from Me Made May that have inspired me for some upcoming makes:

L to R: perfect pattern matching from Roisin Muldoon; amazing tiers of velvet from The Sara Project; a classic candy Betty from Crafty Crusader; an elegant shirt dress from Fiona Parker; chic denim playsuit from Claire Allen-Platt; on-trend gingham from Rosabella Angelica; nightwear at its Liberty finest by Tessuti Fabrics; a pop of yolky yellow from MissMake and a perfectly 50s silhouette from KMakesThings

I’m very much looking forward to not taking pictures of myself every day. But May, it’s been fun.
