It’s #memademay!! I will definitely be trying to wear as much me made as I can every day. I am wearing a kimono I made using #artgalleryfabrics and #simplicity1318 It’s fun to see how many more hand made items I have in my wardrobe compared to last May!

After finding warmer options really missing during #mmmay18 I am so glad I discovered the #grainlinelinden such a simple sew such a simple staple. So happy. Here is number two! Hope to make some more ASAP. #sewingmelbourne #handmadewardrobe #sewing #melbournesews #sewcialistsofinstagram #sewingproject

When it's Girls Night and I need something to wear, #sweetheartpeplum to the rescue!! I was a tad scared about how it would turn out with this beautiful ponte fabric from @fabriccrushco which has a bit less stretch but it ended up perfect.

Purple is my fav colour 💜

This mock-neck tee was in my #mmmay18 stories, but it has earned a place on the grid. Off-white cotton rib-knit, with my self-drafted tee pattern. I traced the new neckline off a McCalls jumpsuit. The end result is a perfect upgraded basic for work-wear. And it pairs beautifully with this RTW skirt that I finally took in at the waist. FYI- ripping seams out of loose tweed is not fun. And posing for pics after a long day of meetings isn’t fun either. #handmadewardrobe #millennialsewing #mendandmakedo

Now up on my blog: a VERY belated #memademay reflection! Since I don't have a large #memadewardrobe yet, my goals were to craft mindfully and daily, to record what I wore, and to work on mending, altering, and refashioning things I already own. For more info, check out the blog (link in bio!).

It’s what you get when you mix gorgeous cotton lawn by @libertylondon and beautifully drapey linen from @merchantandmills to make an #inariteedress by @namedclothing
My #mmmay18 pledge (not make any clothes for myself for the whole month!) was worryingly starting to feel more like a curse as it took a while to get over it. I think it’s finally lifted as I managed to finish this dress in the last week, having cut it over a month ago! Phew... admittedly, there was plenty going on in between but still, it felt like forever!
I wore this last night for an outing with friend from our Design Collective Chichester group @pallanthousegallery and realised I hadn’t posted any pics of it here yet.
Otherwise, loved the pattern and yes, will probably make it again very soon.

Warm weather just arrived in Homer for the first time this year, so here’s my @100actsofsewing #shirtno1 #memademay in July. I cropped the sleeves and bottom a few inches, and made some alterations inspired by the pieced versions from @notaprimarycolor and @elisejoy. Thrifted cotton ticking side panels, vintage wool houndstooth bottom panels, and my own handprinted cotton uppers ✨Excited to make another half dozen variations.

My favorite wrap dress I've made! Perfect for that person who likes to prance around through meadows of wild flowers. That's not me though, it's WAY too hot for that sh%t.

Make nine 2018 updates: - me made may this year really helped me hone in on what it is I need in my wardrobe - as I said in my mmmay2018 roundup I have massive holes in my wardrobe both casual and work...but work I can't fill those holes with RTW - I'm not super human, so trying to do a work make nine and a casual one AND make presents for my family AND renovate our house - so I'll be focussed on my work make nine for the rest of the year - what I really need to fill my work wardrobe are separated.. I can fill in with lovely dresses down the line

First image : my new work make nine
Second image: my original make nine

A bit late to the game as we've been on a month long trip to see family in the UK but here's my summary of learnings from my me made may.

1. My wardrobe is in a bad place both work and casual
2. I can (And did in the UK) fill up my casual wardrobe from RTW for now...as much as this hurts I can't achieve everything in a year
3. I desperately need me made outer wear (next year)
4. Where I need to focus my time is on work wear as a)I wear work wear more than casual in a week and b) I can't find anything I like for a sensible price when it comes to work wear.

So for the rest of the year my casual make nine is on hold and I'm focusing on my work make nine with some edits. And extra challenge....only from my stash

Having 72 hour visits for this asthma study every other week is really egging on my sewing. Finally finished these shorts (an @gertie18 pattern #b6354) that I began for #memademay2018 and just worked on a little bit every day. Sometimes just finishing hems and facings can hinder ones progress. Found this lovely blue cotton twill at @fabricdepot

This tencel twill from @imaginegnats is a dream! Perfect weight for a summer skirt. The pattern is my own, and I tried out a waistband method Ive never used before!
I've finally figured out the setup of a blog on my own URL (damn coding syntax). Sooo my sewing blog will be up soon!

Sooo, sometimes “details soon” means “when I can finally get to it”... 😂 If you saw this post in my #mmmay18 stories, you know what I’m talking about! I made the @closetcase.patterns #kalleshirtdress to wear on my birthday, because that’s what sewists do, right? I knew I wanted something comfortable but I also felt like dressing up a bit, as I had planned a day out with the husband. It was a really warm day and this Kalle made in a linen blend was perfect. 😍 Yes, it’s pretty wrinkly but, it’s linen, so that’s just how it goes. I’ve always loved the way linen becomes softer and develops that “broken-in” look the more it’s worn. Put in on again today (98 degrees!!!) and it was fabulous. I’m sure you’ll see more of these in my feed. ❤️

My first @chalkandnotch Fringe Dress! Absolutely love this pattern! I used indie folk @artgalleryfabrics rayon from fabric.com, and it might be the most beautiful fabric I've ever seen! And it's soft and flowy!

Hello sewing friends, I know I don't owe an explanation for my two month absence, but it feels weird to start posting again without explaining where I have been. So here goes:
First off, I've been great. I'm enjoying my best summer since having babies. This is my first summer in 6 years without a baby inside of me or attached to me and we are making the most of it.

At first I took some time off to paint. It took a month to complete phase 1 of 4 on our home refresh. I missed the most important month of a garment sewists social media life - Me Made May. Of course I didn't really miss taking my daily selfie as much as I missed seeing all of yours. But y'all, my house isn't a brown cave anymore. I can see light everywhere and you might actually see some indoor pictures on this grid in the future.
I was anxious to get back into my studio while painting, but when we neared a stopping point instead of finishing the two Cheyenne tunics I had started several weeks prior, I went for a run instead. That run revived my daily workout routine and my health saw a significant improvement since PPD. I forgot how much I loved fitness - Not as much as sewing of course, but a lot. Now I am training for a triathlon at the end of July. We'll see how it goes, but my gut is that there will be more.
I did eventually make it back into my studio to finish those Cheyennes and a few other things. Now I have a backlog of posts. I intend to start posting again, but I'll keep to an inconsistent summer rhythm. I've really benefited from stepping back and focusing on my family and my health and I want to continue doing that this summer. Hopefully I can strike a balance of all the things that I love. I have taken time off like this before, and it has always been good. It's been fun to jump back in with y'all and pick up where I left off. This community is always alive, always arms wide open and never leaving anybody behind. If you are afraid to take time off because you don't want to miss out, Don't be. You can jump right back in. There is always a new pattern, a new fabric, a new season, a new member to the community and a new make to celebrate. Try it.

Pattern details in comments.

SELF LOVE.
It's something i've been struggling with my whole life. It's hard to love yourself when your body is nowhere near the 'ideal type' the society perceived.
I've been following the #mmmay18 and it's the best decision i've made. The sewing society has taught me to love myself. To see so many different body types, and to see the people so comfortable and confident in their own skin has made me learn to love myself no matter what size i am and I have all the sewists out there to thank to. You guys rock. Thank you @sozoblog for hosting the event, it trully has been an eye opening for me. 🙏❤️
Ootd, i'm wearing a rtw top, with memade gathered midi skirt i made with the help from @tillybuttons tutorial on the picnic blanket skirt. I'm using the leftover fabric from the kalle shirtdress i made for my sister bought from @tokoencit.
