Me Made May 2015 Roundup

I can’t believe Me Made May 2015 is over! This was my second year participating and it was so much fun. I love scanning Instagram each day in May to see what everyone is wearing. Of course my list of patterns I want to sew has grown and grown!

My pledge this year was to wear 1 me made item each day, which I achieved. As I got farther into the month I decided to try for no full outfit repeats, which I also achieved. As usual, the weather in Chicagoland was all over the place so I did get a little nervous when I’d worn all of my Linden sweatshirts before the month was half over, but I managed to find other things to wear on those not so warm days.

Here are the images of what I wore each day this month. I accidentally had my photo taken with a banana on day 1 and then decided to try to pose with different fruits and veggies each day. I had a good streak going but gave up mid-way through the month.

Day 31– Day Tripper Top

There were quite a few old favorites that didn’t come out this year because I am not back to my pre-pregnancy self. It is exciting that some of my old clothes are starting to fit– especially my Thurlow shorts. I was so excited when I got those buttoned!  The Linden Sweatshirt is a workhorse in my wardrobe.  It was hard not to repeat them after I wore them all, but I remembered how much I love my two long sleeve Day Tripper tops. It may be time to make another one of those. I also need some more basic solid color tees for layering. I made a short sleeved black plaintain and I plan to make them in white and gray.

Also, jeans. I wear jeans a lot and I only have one pair that fits right now. And they fit badly. I have a bunch of summer sewing plans but in the next month or so I want to get working on making a muslin for the Ginger jeans. I am really excited (and a little nervous!) to sew my own jeans, but as long as my sewing machine is game I know I can do it!

  1. OMG you made an Archer!! Looking forward to hearing all about it. 🙂 Congrats on another great MMM. I didn’t take daily photographs but really enjoyed seeing what everyone else was wearing.


  2. Wow, Terri, so many lovely, unblogged items yet to come. You have such a great’ MeMade wardrobe, I especially liked seeing all the beautiful fabrics you’ve used, laid out like this 🙂


  3. Your Archer looks awesome- can’t wait to read about it. And you have so many great t-shirts… I discovered that’s what’s missing from my wardrobe.


    1. Thanks, Meg! I hadn’t really considered how many knit tops I actually do have. They are definitely the easiest thing to throw on these days. And it’s really easy to make a new tee when I have limited sewing time.


  4. You had a fantastic month!! I enjoyed seeing your pics on Instagram and yes, you have a great handmade wardrobe! It can only get better! 🙂


  5. Teri your outfits were great!! I’m with you in that I kind of wish I had a Linden for every day the month! I loved seeing your daytrippers too! Your Gingers are going to be great – don’t worry! If you can make an Archer, you can make jeans!
