Me Made May

It’s the first of may and high time for this years me made may resolution. Last year my resolution where to exclusively wear me made with exception for socks, and my rain coat. I manage but it was stressful and I really don’t need more stress in my life at the moment so this year me resolution it to fix some of the holes I got in my handmade wardrobe. To make at least one pair of long trousers and a spring coat.

Most people wear one hand made item a day and I will be doing that as well but documenting my cloths every day might not happen, in fact I don’t thick I have enough ready mades to dress me from to toe more then one day any way so this wont require much brain power for me.

Me made may Belcarra blouse and Pencil-skirt
The hachtag used for this years me made may is #mmmay15 if you want to participate, most of the action is going on over at instagram and the sin up and rules are to be found on So Zo. Me made may is a challenge to use and learn to love your handmade cloths to put them in to your routine.

Back to the coat and trousers, I am planing to make navy twill trousers in the soft and beautiful twill my mom got for me from Sew Over it and have used for my tap shorts. I’m planing to making my own pattern using the cigarette trousers in Gertie sews vintage casual as a base. I will be lovering the rise to a medium rise and add pockets and a front fly. For the coat I will use Minoru by Sewaholic and make it in either pink or mint twill.

Are you participation?
What’s your resolution?

May 11

Me made may

My sailor dress, Robe Reglisse by Deer and Doe and my  Featherweight. I have been on a sewing workshop most of the day and wanted some that allowed me to easily try on trousers, since I would be fitting a pair. It was a nice workshop at Frilagret hosed by a talented local tailor, it is part of a workshop series which include the planning, execution, professional fashion photographing and an exhibition of one outfit/person. It has been wonderful to have expert help and especially when fitting trousers that is new on me and rather difficult to fit on your self. The best is that it is all for free, a cultural project for young adults (about 16-30) to get creative.

MMM 14 Kimono Sleeve Dress MMM 14 Kimono Sleeve Dress

Kimono sleeve dress and organic cotton leggings, I have made quite a few leggings but they hardly ever make it to the blog. I am also wearing my hand made bra, still only have one but it is starting well. This dress has grow on me, I like it more and more, the fabric isn’t the best but I think of making a new in something better soon, this such quick and easy sew.

It has been a cold but sunny day today and spend most of it on the balcony re potting some seedlings.

Det kommer nytt

De här är ett nytt stick projekt som jag på började igår, de enda problemet är bara att jag tror att de blå garnet kommer ta slut för tidigt 🙁 så det får bli att byta till ett annat färg bad vid en rand ganska tidigt på nummer två så det räcker till tummarna också. I övrigt som är jag riktigt nöjd med mönstret.

De här är hyllor na som jag målade på igår och förbättrade lite på nu på morgonen, så för hoppningsvis får vi borrat i betong väggen i köket i eftermiddag.
