Me Made May ’16 Week 2 

Another week down and another assortment of me mades. I have one repeat this week but it’s accompanied by something new for the month. I have to say taking a pic a day starts to make me analyze my face and wonder why it makes the movements it does. That’s my nonchalant face? I look annoyed. My happy face is all squishy, where do my eyes go. Oh well. Self analyzing aside, behold! Week 2!

Day 8:

Safari Simone. Super comfy and soft. This was my second Simone. The first was a top and the second I decided to go the length. Eventually I’ll make another with the piping included on the placket. New challenges!

Day 9:

Butterfly blouse Simplicity 1364. This was part of Fail February. I couldn’t give up on the top. I pulled out the thick bias tape I made and replaced it with a light cotton I had in my stash. I did this for the arms and the neckline. It fixed the weird stiffness in the bands but the neckline was too big. I pulled the extra fabric in the front and measured it. The easiest way to fix it was to add a pleat. It did mean pulling the bias tape off in this section, cutting it down, adding the pleat and reattaching the tape. Totally worth it!

Day 10:


Teal maxi skirt unblogged. This guy was reworked a little recently. The waistband piece was stretched out and heading south on one side. It was lopsided. I ripped off the waist piece, evened it out and sewed it back on. I guess Me Made May is giving me a reason to fix some issues.

Day 11:


Workout capris. Excuse the head chop on this one. I had just got done exercising and it was gross. But everyone is rewarded with a Felix.

Day 12:


Little grey jacket and little grey Kat butt. Also, my blackout Sorbetto for a second time this month. I don’t wear this a lot. This is the same way I wear it every time. It makes it a little boring.

Day 13:


Hawaiian print shirt Simplicity 1106. Made this out of rayon blend. It’s soft and light on hot days. Plus it’s bright and has a crazy print that makes me happy.

Day 14:

Simone in skulls. Two Simones in one week. This was my first. The skull fabric came from NYC. It took me forever to decided what the perfect pattern would be to make this. I finally settled on the Simone and so happy I did. Felix again. Little camera hog.
