[Me-Made-May 13] day 31: the ultimate me-made


On the final day of the challenge, our little girl Héloïse decided it was time we met! We’re both fine and need some time adjusting to this new life – my presence will be scarce in the next few weeks or so, until I can get anywhere near knitting needles or a sewing machine.

[Me-Made-May 13] day 30


Last 2 days of the challenge!! I’m glad that I’ve managed to wear me-mades every day, even if I haven’t posted photos of them every time. Today is another version of the Simplicity 2451 skirt worn on days 4 and 21. It’s in stretch cotton sateen, with tiny beige dots on a white background – […]

[Me-Made-May] 13 day 28

Knitting for grown-ups, Me-Made-Months

Only a few more days before the end of the month! There are many repeats in my outfits these days, but I don’t think it really matters, I’m doing my best under the circumstances: today I’m wearing the same bright yellow t-shirt as day 3.   But I preferred to show you my feet because […]

Me-Made-Months, Sewing for grown-ups

I’m late in posting this! Yesterday we had a little bit of sun (though the temperatures were still very low) and I thought it would be time to wear this dress – I haven’t been able to wear it since I finished it two weeks ago.. The pattern comes from Ottobre magazine issue 2 of […]

Me-Made-Months, Sewing for grown-ups

Still cold and rainy! max today: 13°C… I’m not sure the weather will actually turn to spring before the end of May, it’s a pity because I’d really like to wear short sleeves for once 🙂 Me-Made outfit today is the skirt seen on day 4 and my first Renfrew (view C with cowl neck […]

Me-Made-Months, Sewing for grown-ups

Today is the first time I actually wear this blouse, even though it’s been finished for around 6 weeks now: the weather simply hasn’t been warm enough since then. The pattern is Datura by French Indy company Deer&Doe, which I received as a present for my birthday (thanks again, girls!). I really like the collar! […]

[Me-Made-May 13] day 14

Me-Made-Months, Sewing for grown-ups

today: wool Sewaholic Minoru Jacket, sewed last autumn. I have worn this winter coat nearly every single day this winter and it still fits! If I were to sew this pattern again, I would probably omit the hood and the inside pockets, I haven’t used any of them. But I would definitely add outside welt […]

Knitting for grown-ups, Me-Made-Months

Socks today! still rather cold for a month of May and apparently the forecast isn’t any better for the next 10 days… So handknits again, a little meh this time. These are Stealth Argyles Socks by Eunny Jang, from the book Sock Knitting Masterclass. I really like the colour combination when I bought the book, […]
