Me Made May 2016: a quick overview

Well another year, another Me Made May. For the first time I’ve actually managed to not have repeats (except tights and underwear, and my made by me boots), and I am both proud and slightly ashamed of this fact. I could probably go for a couple of months without repeats, so it’s time I stopped sewing and knitting. Yeah, right!!Screen Shot 2016-05-29 at 8.02.06 pmScreen Shot 2016-05-29 at 8.02.54 pm

There were a few days where I wore boots I had knitted and felted. These boots have just got better and better, and on the days when I wore them, I was me-made head to toe!

One of the best things about Me-Made-May is that I’ve been able to get inspiration from people previously unknown to me, and there are now several patterns that I’m lusting after and a couple which have been added to my stash – aagh. I also loved seeing everyone’s outfits, particularly people whose blogs I follow – it’s great to see clothes again, but styled completely differently. So, to all my fellow Me-Made-Mayers – a fond thank you and looking forward to catching up with you again next year.

  1. I did not take part officially in Me Made May. I am doing the 100 Days Project. Nevertheless, every outfit that Imwore, I made myself. I do have repeats, but that is changing with the progress of the 100 days. This means everything except undies, one knit sleep,shirt and my bathing suit. Even my robes and nighties are my creations. Doesn’t it feel wonderful?
    I do want to make some espadrilles.
    Good work on your wardrobe!

    1. Thank you Susan! I must look at the 100 days project. It does feel wonderful to make our own clothes and I also am considering espadrilles.

  2. What an impressive me-made wardrobe you have! Your day 4 dress caught my attention and following the link, I discovered it’s a Xerea dress. It looks devine on you! Did you alter the neckline? Looks like there is a little v in the front.

    1. There’s a V in the back (which makes it draughty in winter), but I think the front is round. Do you have this pattern? It’s lovely.

  3. You have had an awesome Me Made May Sue and I have loved seeing your daily outfits. Thanks so much for sharing your creativity. I find your enthusiasm infectious and I have experienced a huge boost to my sewing mojo.

  4. Thanks so much for your inspiration – do you even take time out to eat? Seriously – beautiful job!!

  5. I really, really enjoyed looking at your outfits on IG and on your blog. Just a great, appropriate, comfortable, interesting, colourful and well fitted wardrobe. Bravo Sue!

  6. It’s been great seeing all your MMM outfits, you always looks so elegant. I also need to stop sewing and like you that won’t be happening.

  7. I don’t think you’re going to stop sewing any time soon – I hope not. I’ve enjoyed seeing your outfits.

  8. I so enjoyed seeing your daily amazing outfits during this year’s MMMay and look forward to keeping up through blogs and IG during the year. You are inspiring in your creativity and the way you style your outfits. And *heart* those boots!!!!! 🙂
