Week 2 recap of Me Made May is finally here. It has been a strange few weeks for my business which I will be sharing more about tomorrow on the blog, but I really wanted to recap every week since I am really learning so much about my clothes choices this month.
If you didn’t get a chance to read my recap from the first week of this years Me Made May you can read it here.
Trying something a little different this year with Me Made May, by sharing weekly recaps for you. I think this is going to be a better way to share my weekly insights and pattern thoughts without trying to remember it all month long. Week 1 has been pretty much a breeze, thanks to a wardrobe of handmade, but I know as the month progresses it is going to get more difficult. But I love the challenge and the knowledge that comes from this month of pushing myself.
You can find my thoughts on the challenge in these posts from 2015 and 2016
Sometimes in sewing what feels like an epic mistakes turns into the happiest of accidents and so much better than you could have ever imagined. My tencel twill cheyenne is just that an unexpected surprise from an epic cutting mistake earlier in the week.
Any sewist can look in their stash and find fabric that they are just waiting for the perfect pattern. Whether the fabric has special meaning or maybe something you splurged on, you just want the garment to be perfect when the fabric is finally used. But many of us get really nervous when the pattern has been picked and you have to actually cut into the fabric.
A button up shirt is pretty much a wardrobe staple and I have been dying to make one forever! I just knew it would be a wonderful layer to take me through the spring, summer and fall here in Seattle. My conclusion is that everyone also needs a chambray shirt in their wardrobe.
I originally made this shirt for the photoshoot of my plaid Wedgwood skirt and then never actually took it off long enough to blog about it. Seriously, I would probably wear this every day if I didn’t start getting looks.
