Me Made May 2017 Round Up

Me Made May 2017 has come to an end 😢 It was a great International sewing month and glad that I managed to participate again for the fifth year. Nothing changed from the previous years, my outfits were dresses with very little separates garments in between. Before I write more about the outfits that I wore, I want to say thank you to Zoe for organising this great challenge, my dear Husband who very patiently took pictures and all sewing friends in Instagram and Facebook Page for the comments and likes during the whole month of May.

Well, I am not going to bore you with all the outfit details but I will highlight the new garments only because for sure you have seen all the old dresses/separates before 😁 

Day 1 to 7.
For the start of the month, I was wearing my brand new v-neck shift dress with ruffled cuffs in floral print. Another two new garments were Refashioned t-shirt on day 3 and unblogged Crochet Amma Top, free pattern from Maria Valles Handmade on day 6. 

Day 8 to 15.
I forgot to put the dress that I wore on day 9  and the only new dress was Green Polkadots dress with ruffle shoulder on day 10.

Day 16 to 23.
There are three new makes : the yellow tunic dress on day 17, unblogged Green cape sleeve top on day 20 and Elastic waist pants in floral pattern Simplicity 8059 C on day 23.

Day 24 to 31.
I couldn't resist to wear my new yellow tunic dress again on day 28. The two new garments were, printed baby blue ruffle sleeve blouse on day 30 and unblogged new dress on last day, sleeveless floral dress with v-back pattern modified from TNT jamie shift dress - I made it to an a-line dress with more flare on the bottom, omitted the dart and made a v-back.

After all, I realised that there is a big hole in my wardrobe. I need a lot of separates garments (top, skirt, shorts and pants), light cardigan and some undies. I was lucky that I made two lace kimonos in black and cream colours, they were perfect to layer up in air-con or windy area.
Also, I was able to say goodbye to my blue polka dots Jamie shift dress. The dress was really old and I need to sew the new one to replace it.
Besides, I decided to refashion some of the dresses to tops or skirts. I will see...

That's it for today post, wishing you all a happy weekend and happy sewing. I am working on a muslin for a dress that I will wear in a very special occasion next month and also cutting some laces for panties (yes, I am dying to sew them since so long) and also crocheting another Amma Top in between sewing and busy life 😀😀
