Me Made May 2017: Week 1

It’s May! And if you are involved in the sewing world, you know it’s time to bring out all the handmade pieces and get ready for a bunch of awkward pictures of ourselves! This is the third year I’ve participated in Me Made May, and I love the challenge. It’s a great chance to encourage each other, and I think of it as a fun time to find new patterns to sew, since you get to see what people wear on a daily basis. I’ve been stalking the Turia Dungarees and the Maritime Shorts have been added to my sewing list!

I’m doing a daily post over on Instagram (@trishstitched) and throughout the month, I’ll be doing weekly re-caps of each day here on my blog!

Day 1: Sewing Day! I wore a Handmade Lark Tee and Seamwork Oslo Cardigan with a pair of RTW shorts from Target. Both these makes are unblogged, but both have been made this year.

Day 2: The past two weeks I was on call for jury duty and Tuesday I got the call into court. This was my second time being called for jury duty so I knew it was going to be a long day of sitting. I didn’t have any handmade items that could pass off for business causal, that I would be warm in, so my handmade’s came after I got home. I changed into a pair of Seamwork Aires for the rest of the day. (Another item unblogged, but I wrote about another version of them here.

Day 3: Another sewing day, which means I dress pretty casual. I wore my first woven version of the Lou Box Top, blogged about here. I’ll be wearing all my versions of the Lou Box Top this May!

Day 4: Seamwork Astoria! When I go to work on my parent’s farm, I tend not to wear me-made’s because my farm clothes get really dirty, and go through tough work. There are some pieces I don’t mind wearing, and I wear so many more me-made’s in summer because I have a lot more work- friendly options. But we will see how far I get this May with work clothes! Also featuring my 7 month old niece, Molly!

Day 5: A really crappy day on the farm. It poured all day long and was pretty cold. I wore a shortened Seamwork Neenah (unblogged) and my Kelly Anorak .

Day 6: Floral Astoria ( link above) and my first pair of Ginger Jeans. This pair is no where near perfect but they are pretty comfy.

Day 7: My new pair of Ginger’s and a me made tank. Sunday’s are my day’s with Drew, but next week I’ll be starting to work Sunday mornings so this was our last day alone for a few months. We had a nice day of food shopping, shoe shopping for Drew and watching tv.

While I tend to wear handmade items almost every day, I find taking photos of some of my outfits boring because they feel plain. I think for the remainder of May I will try to dress a little nicer when I’m home just so I’m not in leggings constantly! Are you guys participating? How did your first week go?

  1. Love your recap! I have already realized I really need to sew some workout gear (considering that’s all I’m willing to wear on weekends haha). What are your favorite work-out leggings patterns? Do you like the Aires best? I love both of your versions!
