Me-Made-May Days 29, 30 and 31

Me Made May Day 29

Today is the last day of Me-Made-May. I can't quite believe that it's over and that tommorow I can get dressed without having to think about whether I'm wearing something that I've sewn. It has definitely been a challenge and I'm excited about wearing whatever I want again. Visiting the Flickr group and seeing everyone else's take on MMM has been really interesting and I found some great new blogs.

Me Made May Day 30

(who is a genius) has already thought up the next sewing/crafting related challenge, Self-Stitched-September, so if you want in on the fun visit her post and sign up.

Me Made May Day 31


  1. I just wanted to tell you how much I love the dress on Day 30! All your dresses are lovely, but that one strikes me because it's a fabric I would be shy to try (so romantic!) but you pull it off beautifully. :)

  2. I agree with Ali, I love day 30's dress as well.
    I myself am not a floral person,it just does not suit me, but the style is lovely, and I do have a floral fabric my sister in law gave me. She wanted it made into something for her but as yet could not decide what, seeing this I think I may have found it's purpose!
    Did you use a pattern, if so mod or vintage?

  3. Congratulations on making it all the way to the end of me made may. I ditched the last 2 days because it was so freaking cold here all I wanted to wear were jeans and I have not made any tops so non-me made it had to be. You did so well this month and I really enjoyed all your outfits.

  4. Ali- Thanks. It's funny I never thought of the print as romantic, I just have a thing for florals. I always think that anyone can pull off anything as long as they feel good in it.

    Brumby- Thanks. The pattern was a retro reprint from Butterick, B5032, so it's modern vintage. It was really easy and fun to make.

    Kat- Thanks. You did a great job too. Wearing something you made for 29 days in a row is a pretty big achievement. I hope you're going to do Self-Stitched-September too.

  5. Hi! You have looked so awesome throughout May! You have a really lovely and unique personal style, I acn't wait to see what you make next. Thanks so much for the compliment, and thanks so much for chosing to be part of the next challenge, it wouldn't be the same without you! I agree, I've found some great new blogs and some very thought provoking and funny writers as a part of MMM, can't wait for more!

    All the best

  6. Thank you, will hunt it down!

  7. Congrats on making it through! As always, love your belts. I'm not sure if I'll be doing Self-Stitched-September... we'll have to wait and see how I feel... Enjoy the freedom of June and wearing whatever! :)

  8. Great looks! My fav is the first one, the tights you added really complete the look nicely!
