A lot of MMMay

So guess who got realllly lazy and only took bathroom pictures of her outfits? This girl. I also started taking a summer Anatomy class last week which means my brain is completely overloaded and I don't have time to do anything (even though I definitely shirk my duties and make time for sewing occaisonally). So, here is the last two-ish weeks of Me Made May.

Day 12: another Meissa blouse in a quilting cotton. I modified this one with Grainline sleeve plackets so that I could actually push the sleeves up... it kind of works but next time I just need to straight up make the sleeves wider.

Day 13: Cold and gross outside? Flannel Archer.

Day 13 part 2: Floral saltspring dress (blogged here). 

Day 14: The dress that started it all! My Dixie DIY ballet dress. I made this back in December when I first started sewing again. The neckline can attest to this.

Day 14: Popover Archer again. I seriously want to wear this shirt every day. 

Day 16: This bad boy is several years old and has the wonkiest neckline in my closet. I was going to keep it anyways, until I found a bandaid stuck to the armpit that had been baked there by the dryer. Ewwww, I need to launder my clothes like an adult.

Day 17: Double me-made! My Ikat popover Archer, and a camo Colette Negroni I made for my dad's 50th birthday! Kind of a pattern matching fail at the front, but you can't even see that pocket! Also yeah, he's 6'7" so that was a lot of camo fabric.

Day 18: only the coolest shirt I currently own. Comic book fabric Scout Tee!

Day 19: Pete and repeat were in a boat, Pete fell out, who was left? REPEAT. Chambray Meissa blouse. Again.

Day 20: Self-drafted python bro tank I made for my older brother. For my mom's animal print 50th birthday party!

Day 21: another repeat, but I still love this daytripper.

Day 22: Super itchy uncomfortable scout tee in scratchy awful linen blend.

Day 23: A much better linen situation. I only have a remnant of this comic book fabric, so I used some much much nicer black linen for the back.

Day 24: My snakeskin sprint Saltspring dress for my mom's birthday party. I wish I could say I took this photo at the party, but that shit was blackout city and I'm honestly glad that I'm alive.

Day 25: Too hungover, didn't want to puke on my nice me-mades.

Day 26: My first Colette Mabel! I initially made the long version with the kick pleat, realized I look awful in a knit pencil skirt, cut off the kick pleat and made it into a mini!

Ok, ready for the last few days. I'm so over taking selfies. 


  1. I've really enjoyed watching your Me-Made-May photos on Instagram!
    Also: I've nominated you for a Liebster award – I've put up the questions on my blog :)

  2. Aw, thank you for your nomination and your super awesome compliment :)

    As soon as I finish this stupid Anatomy quiz tomorrow evening and no longer need to remember what the obturator foramen is, I will fill this bad boy out!

  3. Promptly googles obturator foramen...
    Good luck with your quiz!
