Catch up.

So as promised here are the things I made while I was gone from the blogging world.

Annnnnd here we go!

This is my bustle dress that I entered in the county fair. It one Grand Champion! I was super excited!

This is a dress I made for a teenager for her Middle School graduation. Also won first prize in the Teen Sewing category at the county fair.


I made these outfits for Emily and her friend for Twin Day at school. Both girls loved them!

I made these for Christmas presents.

And That is all for now folks!

I have been a bad girl.

I am sorry to say that I kind of abandoned this blog last year. I grew uninterested in talking about the things that I was making. But I realized tonight while talking to a friend of mine that I don't have a place where I can show off what I have been making all on one place. So get ready for the mother load of posts! I have a lot to catch up on!

Me Made may Review

So May is come to a close and I am so happy to have survived it! Here is a review of the handmade things I wore this month.

First up Shirts and Tops:

Of all these tops I only like to wear the yellow and mint back buttons and the eggy shirt. I would say its a bust on the tops this time around.

Next up Dresses:

I will say that this month made me fall in love with dresses again. They are so easy to make and they require little matching to make a complete outfit.

Well I dint have as many Me Made things as I thought starting this month out, and some things are winter stuff, but I thought I did a good job!

I cant wait until Self Stitched September!

MMM Days 29,30 and 31

So Tuesday I wore my Polka Dot Shirt terrible picture I know but I had no one to snap one.

Wednesday I got off my tushie and fixed the zipper in my Easter Dress and wore it to church!

And today we had a water fight at my house so I wore this shirt and some shorts. But I am all wet so I didn't take a picture today.

Well that is all the month of May!


I am so proud of myself I only had 2 days of non-me made stuff. I will do a review post later but I am so happy to be done!

MMM Days 26, 27 and 28

So Saturday I went yard sailing with my friend Maria. We had a great time and I got some awesome deals!
Unfortunately I was going to wear a new sheet dress that afternoon, but the front bodice would not be modest! I ripped out the seam 3 times before I threw up my hands in defeat. So I wore a shirt and shorts from old navy instead. I am hanging my head in shame.

But on Sunday in honor of Memorial Day I wore my Martha Dress and my new white cardigan (church is super cold) to church!

I love this dress and the new cardigan fit perfectly!

So on Monday I wasn't feeling well so I wore my sumo pajama pants around most of the day. I don't have a picture of these and I probably will never take one. So you will just have to live with disappointment.

MMM Days 24 and 25

So yesterday I was feeling a bit sluggish so I threw on my Birthday Dress and I felt all better lol.

And today I finished sewing a sheet dress and I tried to improve the fit with darts but it ended up squishing my boobs and making me feel out of breath. Weird. I think I will pass this one on to a person with less upstairs than I have.

On another note here are some creations that I forgot about in my last post:

My darling Girl Scout needed a dress for school, she was going to be Isabella of Spain.

I made this dress in 48 hours. Just sayin'. You cant see it but there are pearls hand sewn on the neckline waist and front lace.

She looks so happy!

And this dress I made for the lovely Charlotte for her 2nd Birthday. (Shame on you Maria, you know what you did)

And a close up of the sash where I embroidered her name:

Thats all for now Folks!

Other Sewing....

I know that I have been rather unimaginative with my Me Made May posts, but I have been busy just not sewing garments for myself.

I finished this quilt that I started I'm sure over a year ago. The squares were in a pack and they were in the clearance section at Walmart and I couldn't resist.

This quilt (with the cute legs) was one that I started many many years ago. So many years that I have named it the Procrastinator's Quilt.  The fabric caught my eye at Walmart (hey I was young I didn't know any better) and I got the pattern from a quilting website. Once I finished my lovely husband put up our new shelf in our bedroom and that's where this quilt was put up.

So Last night Emily says to me I want to match my doll tomorrow, so after much debate I made a pair of pants to match her doll's pants and new shirts for both of them.

She is very happy with the result.

This next dress I made for a friend. Her daughter had to be Anne Boleyn in a "living wax museum" for school. She picked the fabrics and I sewed it up for her:

And Last and defiantly Shortest, my niece needed a new birthday dress and I had this remnant just laying around the house. Accidentally made it too long but that means more room to grow into!

Well I am worn out just making this post!

MMM Days 20,21 and 23

Monday I wore this shirt and some jeans:

 Tuesday I wore this top and some jeans:

I think I am the most boring Me Made may person ever! But these pieces are just so comfy my hand automatically reaches for them in the morning.

Today was Miss Emily's Awards and Field Day and I wore this outfit:

The cardigan is new I got it for 1$ at a yard sale this weekend. I am not sure the style looks good with this dress but the color is spot on!
Hold on for just a minute and I will have the post I promised you about all my non Me Made sewing this month.

MMM Days 18,19 and 20

On Friday I wore hand me downs most of the day but wore my sumo pajama pants and I say that counts!

Saturday I wore my sheet dress. I love this dress its very comfy and easy to throw on.

Today (Sunday) I reached way far back in my closet and found this lovely gem that was a toile for the Simplicity 9891 pattern. The shoulders of course are a problem but I think I will just throw on a cardigan.

Well that's all for now stay tuned for a post about things I have NOT been wearing this month :)
