Somehow, I’m still going strong! Without any repeats so far. So it’s time for another Me-Made-May post. 😀
Howdy partners! How are you today? How are we already a week into May?! This year is just speeding along!
Time for me to share my Me-Made-May progress with you. Must say, six days in and I’m pretty pleased so far. Let’s break it down.
Time for another mashup ’round here! This one is a love child of Love Sewing magazine’s Simple Sew Loretta dress (issue 20) and By Hand London’s Charlotte skirt. Coming up with a name for these frankenpatterns is often the trickiest part but I don’t think this one is too bad. What do you reckon? Featuring some beautiful fabric from Fabric Godmother and zero finishing, I’m very pleased with a comfortable dress! And wore it to both my work Christmas luncheon and for the New Years’ Eve party I went to.
Remember those sewing and dressmaking classes I attended? All that sewing I said I was (going to be) doing? On my other blog, I even created a Sewing Saturday series and a sewing page. Well,now it’s time to revisit all of that here, on this new blog.
I’ve been wanting to share my sewing escapades with you lot for aaaaages! But only now — after moving house, trying to more effectively manage my time, lots of work (the day job!), some travel, and of course, procrastination — am I finally at a point where I can start doing that. And I’m really excited for you to see what I’ve made so far!
If you’d been reading my other blog, you’ve already heard about totes bags, cushions and more in the Sewing Saturday posts. But what I’d not shared, were any of the dressmaking projects I’d completed; a good number now! So that’s what’s I’m going to do.
Be warned: I’m a novice sewer, and certainly not a sewing blogger, of which there are many awesome examples! Also, I cannot promise excellent photography: the problem with trying to show off clothes is you have to wear them and get someone to take photos of you. Good ones. But I’ll try.
