Me-Made-May Week 2 Recap

May 6:  Wiksten Tova made with floral Lecien fabric
 Since this is already the second Tova I've worn this month,
I think it's safe to assume I love this pattern!
please excuse the wrinkly shirt and cheesy smile...

May 8:  Generally unworn Bee Skirt made from some Liberty look-alike fabric

May 9:  Another one from the back of my closet...
a self-drafted top that was based on a RTW garment

May 10:  My favorite top lately...another Tiny Pocket Tank made from some mystery fabric (rayon?).  It's super comfy and I can wear it with jeans and a cardigan!  
I love how the bias binding around the neck and armholes turned out.

What have I learned so far from Me-Made-May?

1.  I need to sew faster!  It's only May 10 and I already feel like I'm running out of things to wear.  This has definitely forced me to wear things that I'm not super excited about.  Some of them should just be given away instead of sitting in the back of my closet. 

2.  My usual uniform is jeans, top and maybe a cardigan.  I need to make more tops so my co-workers can see me in something other than my Tiny Pocket Tanks!

3.  The Miette Skirt is the most comfortable skirt I have ever worn.
Have you made one yet?  You need to.

4.  I learned some fancy photo editing. 
OK, it's probably not fancy at all but it's new to me!

5.  I am not a fan of getting my picture taken, but I need to get over it.

  1. Hi! Thanks for your comment over at my blog! I've been thinking about taking a sewing class at Fancy Tiger. I've been trying to teach myself, but when it comes to making clothes, I feel like I need extra guidance!

    When do you work? I want to stop in!
