Me Made May - part three

Me Made May was fun, and a challenge. I really enjoyed considering my outfit each day and I became very aware of the gaping holes in my me-made wardrobe. 

I need more basics, in solid colours that I can mix and match with other items. I love bright colours and bold prints, but they need toning down with solids.


This typewriter print fabric skirt has been a hit. My second make of the month, a simple pleated skirt but that fabric makes it look great, I can see it being over worn this summer. 

I made this Peter Pan blouse from Gertie's New Book for Better Sewing in my third week. I had a soft cotton in my stash which has a subtle spot print, I paired it with some of my duck egg circles print on kona cotton for the collar. They work so well together and the vintage buttons I found at classic car fair matched perfectly.

My final make of the challenge was meant to be a skirt, but I hadn't considered that it was half term, so my plans changed and I just managed this bow belt, I don't have an outfit to go with it yet, so that may well become my next project!

This is a round up of the four items I made this month, I plan to try and make at least one new Me Made item each month and to continue to wear what I make more often. 

Thanks for sticking with me with all these tricky selfies! If you took part in Me Made May, has it influenced your future makes too?


  1. The typewriter skirt is a winner! A unique use of that fabric. Not another Ipad case!

  2. I am extremely impressed along with your writing abilities, Thanks for this great share.
