Feathers Flights // Sewing Blog: Me Made May Week 1


Me Made May Week 1

I've finished my first week of Me Made May! My first week was successful. I don't think I struggled finding handmade items to wear, but it did make me think more about what I was putting on. I have a lot of tops, skirts, and dresses that are entirely handmade, but not a lot of pants or shorts. But I can't see myself making any of these in the near future. I also have a lot of altered RTW which I think counts because then they actually fit me and flatter me.

Shirt: a chambray button up shirt using a Burdastyle pattern, the Long Sleeve Blouse
Skirt: a self-drafted mint pencil skirt

  1. Please post about the flamingo shirt. My daughter has one her grandma bought her and I always tease her that I'm going to steal it and wear it. She is nine so I don't think her shirt would fit me. But I would love to find some fabric and make one!
    Looking at what you have done with pants, turning them into shorts, makes me look at my closet. I think I have a couple of pairs of pants that need to be turned into shorts!
