Me-Made-May 2014 round 1

Time for the first days of Me-Made-May 2014. The next posts will showcase what I have sewn pre blog in the past and give an idea about my style.

To make sure that I wouldn’t forget about Me-Made-May I slept through the night in my gummibear Tofino Pants. A recent make straight from the envelope that will have to do without an action shot.

Next is my raincoat lookalike Minoru without the slightest ability to fight the tiniest raindrop. It’s actually one of the few pieces I can add a back link to.

After two Sewaholic patterns something from burda style, my trusty (subscription!) pattern source. Before I saw GingersCocoon cardigan I had totally overlooked it in the magazine. And by Gingers experience I was warned, that thing runs big. I made the smallest size provided (36 in German, I never make that size) and still it’s roomy. And be warned it’s not only huge it’s also very long. I’m 1,75 m and it goes down to my knees!

I have lost count of how many versions I have actually made. Zoela by Farbenmix my favorite raglan shirt pattern in the world. This time I added a hem band to give it kind of a sweatshirt look and slimmed the sleeves. The bodice part is made out of a kind of stretchy pleather fabric with a shiny surface and the sleeves are from a matt poly double knit (?) thick jersey. Attaching the neckband was a nightmare, to avoid puckers I had to recut (lengthen) the neckband three times (!!!). My intention was to keep the look as sportive as possible to prevent even the slightest resemblance to any kind fetish (I hope you know what I mean and you agree).

The next picture will have to do for May 5th and 6th but I’m wearing two me-made garments. The stripped Renfrew can be for Monday and the ‘sweater turned cardigan’ (tutorial by delia creates) for Tuesday, if you will.

I love, love, love stripped shirts, but I can get a bit fixated on stipe matching. Want to see a photo from the making process? Please tell me you know this tedious pinning also!

Phew, six days down, 25 (including a wedding, not mine) more to go. Fun so far, don't you think?!?

Thanks for stopping by, Kat
