Me Made May 2017 #MMM2017 - Week 2 Round Up!

Me Made May 2017 is in full swing, and I have the next set of posts from my instagram @fairfit share with you. Maybe you will recognize some patterns you have been thinking of making. This week, I'm showing off some of my favorite shirtdresses. In this second post in a series for Me Made May 2017, I am sharing a daily look at my self sewn wardrobes and the custom pieces I've made this last year. 

Are you designing a handmade wardrobe? Here's a peek at how I built mine. Now that my wardrobe is 90% self sewn, I think of it as a work of art, a portfolio that I accomplished over the course of last year.

ME MADE MAY DAY 6 - MUSE PATTERNS GILLIAN WRAP DRESS

Me Made May- Day 6 - at the market in @musepatterns #gillianwrapdress - this is definitely my favorite wrap dress pattern. Have you made it yet? The construction is more complex, and the yokes keep it from popping open in the front. I made a few versions of this dress in very light vintage poly, and I'll likely make more versions in the future.

Me Made May Day 9 - 🍕Pizza date night with @paulea! He made my bag for me out of some vintage couch material and blue leather.

ME MADE MAY DAY 11 - FAIR FIT DRESS WITH PATCHED REPURPOSE

Me Made May Day 11 - Fair Fit Dress using repurposed strips of hand dyed cotton. I am very inspired by the visual textures and colors in Louisiana homes, and try to create relationships with fashion and interior and exterior architectural elements. The Fair Fit Pattern is like a puzzle to teach you pathways of fit and customization- learn more about it here and see more images on the blog.
