Me-Made Weeks 3 & 4

I have been dealing with some health issues, so I didn’t manage to wear me-made every day. So, I didn’t meet the challenge for Me Made May. So what? I did the best I could.

The images right and left have items from the Japanese sewing book Happy Homemade Sew Chic – the Tunic with Roll-up Sleeves (worn with Colette’s Moji pants) and Bolero Jacket with Front Tucks. The blouse in the center is from the Italian sewing magazine La Mia Boutique. So I guess I was a bit international. And blue.

I also repeated a few things because the weather was lousy and I was stuck at home.

Then we were on vacation to Corning, NY, and to Canada – Niagara Falls, Toronto and Stratford.

I forgot to take pictures every day, but here are some highlights. I managed to wear Me-Made head to toe a couple of days, so I felt good about that. And I wore my newest make  – the high-waisted McCall’s 7726 trousers.

In Stratford I attended the PatternReview.Com weekend – a get-together for home apparel sewists. More about that another time.

Thinking back about Me-Made May, I don’t think I will do it next year. I felt bad that I didn’t meet the challenge this year. And then I felt stupid for caring about it. It’s fun to see people getting excited about it, but it’s also not all that important to me. Anyway, I tried.

I live in Connecticut, USA with my husband and my dog, in an old house outfitted with a sewing room, a garden, an orchard, and a big liquor cabinet.

  1. If a social media challenge isn’t fun, then, yeah, bow out. It’s but a blip. That’s my reasoning anyway. I do enjoy seeing/reading about others’ MMM “adventures,” but I knew when it first started years ago that I personally would fizzle quickly. I’m a fizzler. Haha.
