For week one and what Me Made May is go here.
Here is the collection of what I wore for week two of #MeMadeMay2020.
May 8th – Paper Bag Skirt
A simple paper bag skirt and t-shirt. I threw a silky scarf on to add some flair.
May 9th – Lark Tee
We went on a walk around our neighborhood and held onto tiny flowers that Ezra gave us. We looked at and smelled the roses. We said hello to people outside. It was wonderful! My handmade garment today is the Grainline Studio Lark Tee made with a french terry from Joann and once again I threw a scarf on.
May 10th – McCalls 7974
Happy Mother’s Day! I am so grateful for my mother, mother-in-law, and mother figures I have had in my life. They all helped prepare me for my own motherhood. I am grateful to be the mother of two lovely daughters that I pray become mother’s themselves.
This dress is McCall’s 7974 made in a gorgeous Joann fabric.
May 11th – My Barbie Skirt
My Barbie skirt is my tried-and-true McCall 6706. Fabric is from Joann. The top layer is sheer so I underlined it with pink and white polka dotted cotton. My top is from J.Crew Factory, but you can recreate it with the Lark Tee pattern and my scalloped neckline tutorial.
May 12th – New Pajama Top
The top of my Carolyn Pajamas is finally complete. I am so happy with how it turned out. It took a month to put together. It wasn’t hard to sew, it just didn’t hold my attention for long stretches of time. The true reason is that sewing pajamas isn’t as exciting as a dress/skirt for me. This will likely never see the outside world because I do not go out in public in pajamas, but I continued on because I want to wear this elegant pajama set on Sunday mornings. It is so beautiful and soft. The cotton lawn is from Mood Fabrics in L.A. The excellent pattern is by Closet Case Patterns.
May 13th – Skirt Repeat
I wore this skirt in week one and again in week two. I love this skirt, obviously. Here is the skirt tutorial! The sweater is from J.Crew.
May 14th – Birthday Cake Sweater
I am wearing my “Birthday Cake” sweater that I knit a few years ago with a store-bought dress that I call my confetti dress, so I am ready for a party!
That’s it for week two! Week three coming soon.
