Me-Made-May 13 – week 1

7 May


Well hello!
May is upon us. And for everyone in Europe we had a bank holiday to kick  things off too!

I managed four out of five days in me-mades this week. I had agreed with myself a goal of six out of seven days in each week but hey, this was a short week!


Day 1: green bias stripe top from self drafted pattern. Not blogged because its the same fabric and pattern as my bias stripe dress!


Day 2: sweetheart print truffle bodice with self drafted gathered a-line skirt. More about that later.


Day 3: one of the first ever things I made, my georgette star print top using New Look 6962.


Day 4: strappy top made from the skirt of a topshop sundress using Butterick 5653.

I had an awesome weekend. I saw my little brother on Saturday and went to Abakhans where I bought chevron print fabric for an unbelievably good price. Saw friends and ate good food on Sunday. And larked about around the canal and docks before having a bbq yesterday! Plus I watched three good films and snuck in a smidge of sewing!!


Hope you had a fantastic weekend too!
