Me Made May 2017 #MMM2017 - Week 5 Round Up!

Thanks for following along with this year's Fair Fit Me Made May Series. In this series of 5 posts, I shared with you all of my wardrobe me mades that I created the past year while building a self sewn wardrobe. I've had so much fun sharing and posting, I probably could do a Me Made June! However, its inspired me to show off more of the things I sew, so that's a good new habit this challenge has created. In this fifth and final 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.

Like you, I really don't have time for a sewing fail so I have a very specific process I use when creating my self sewn wardrobe. Want to bring more design to the garments you sew too? I designed a free workbook that provides you the opportunity to consider your own process and bring some new methods that I teach to your sewing practice. There are a series of exercises inside to help you find new ways to optimize your self sewn clothing with custom design approaches. Go here to this link, get the workbook and give it a try! I'll also send you some more informative posts on sewing, design, and learning as well.

ME MADE MAY 2017 DAY 28 - CLOTH HABIT HARRIET BRA

Me Made May Day 28 - Can you tell this was a #bramaking series? This is 3 of 3 @clothhabit #harrietbra experiments with vintage fabric scraps. This polyester had a similar weight and stretch as duoplex, so I went for it. The other fixings were from @tailormadeshop except for the black lace. #handmadelingerie #sewingbras #memade #memademay #memadeeveryday

ME MADE MAY 2017 DAY 29 - MUSE PATTERNS GILLIAN WRAP DRESS

Me Made May 29 - another @musepatterns #gillianwrapdress made in vintage paisley polyester. I know I was risking it with the poly, but its super light, and I do love it this emerald fabric so I couldn't resist. The vintage fabrics I use help round out my wardrobe, and give it a little punch. #memademay #mmm17 #memadeeveryday photo @dovecotephotostudio
