Me Made May 2013



I'm always up for a little selfish sewing (or in this case the wearing of selfish sewing projects) but I have to say that I'm even more excited for this year's Me-Made-May - mostly because I've missed my me-made-clothes.

First there was the pregnancy and not fitting into anything because of my ever-expanding belly.  Then there were the pounds that stick around for a while after you actually have the baby.  And then there's your chest that ends up about two sizes bigger than normal when you nurse.  And while this might sound like an awesome thing for someone like me who barely has a chest, it was completely frustrating to find that all of my shirts were either too tight or too short to be worn.  With my body growing and shrinking and changing in so many ways over the last year and a half, about three-quarters of the clothes in my closest haven't fit me at one time or another and many of them are either packed away in a chest or collecting dust from being unworn.

But with the pregnancy weight finally gone most of the pants and skirts are fitting once again.  And after a year of lugging the breast pump to and from work everyday, I've finally parted ways with it for good and things seem to be shrinking back down to their normal size (if you catch my drift).

Which is all just to say that I'm ridiculously excited to unpack and dust off my me-made-clothes and participate in this year's Me-Made-May.  Who's with me?


  1. I don't have the guts to do it yet but I can't wait to see yours!!

  2. I haven't made anything for myself yet. All my sewing skills are used on my friends and my own kids. I may just have to start making some things for myself and participate next year!

    Wishing you a lovely day!

    PS - Can't wait to see pics of you in your creations!

  3. I haven't made enough things for myself to be able to participate this year, but now that I know about it maybe that will be my goal for next year!

  4. Hmm, I haven't had a baby, I think i've just eaten myself out of my summer dresses - my challenge in 2 months is to fit into them again!

  5. Good for you! Can't wait to see your Me Made May!


A comment? For me? You're the best!
