Well I didn’t manage to get a photo of my garments each day but I did document them so I thought it would be fun to see my month in numbers. How did you do?

MMM’15 Week 1 Round Up

Posted on

Though I didn’t really plan it, this week saw many old favorites!

Day One 5/1/15: Colette Monetta hack. I added a color blocked waistband and cowl neck to the basic pattern.

Day Two 5/2/15 : Colette Monetta straight from the package. I wear this dress a LOT.

Day Three 5/3/15: Colette Monetta deja vu. Worn at Biltmore Estate to see the Dressing Downton exhibit!

Day Four 5/4/15: Kate and Rose Patterns Roza blouse. Added gingham lace embroidery to the front.

Day Five 5/5/15: Colette Oslo cardigan. This is from the December 2014 issue of Seamwork Magazine.

Day Six 5/6/15: Cake Patterns Cabarita top. Originally made for July 4th baseball viewing but I typically wear all summer.

Day Seven 5/7/15: Old Navy Tee embroidered with Anna Maria Horner design

Nothing new this week but everything I wore is much loved. How did your first week of Me Made May go?

Me Made May ’15

It’s my favorite sewing time of the year…Me Made May! Is everyone ready for tons of inspiration from all over the world? I know I sure am. So in honor of this year,

‘I, Jeri of My Modern Vintage, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’15. I endeavor to wear at least one Me Made item each day for the duration of May 2015’

Since I chatted with you guys last September (gasp, I can’t believe it has been six months since my last post) I have actually gotten some sewing and a LOT of knitting completed. I am in the middle of a heavy closet purge so at the end of this month, I hope to only have items in my closet that are actually worn!

Anybody else joining the Me Made May challenge?

Posted on

Week three ended up being much cooler than expected so I broke out some hand knitted sweaters. Of course, my love affair with the Colette Mabel pattern hasn’t cooled so I stitched up yet another!
