Me Made May 2015

Thursday, April 30, 2015

 'I, Lisa, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '15. I endeavor to wear one or more me made item, at least 5 of 7 days per week for the duration of May 2015' ... I also commit to finishing up any works in progress ( not all, haha ) before the end of the month.

I am very excited to be a part of MMM for the very first time. 
Pretty sure everyone in the blogging world knows about it ... but if you do not, just go on and read all about it here.

In the spirit of all things hand made, I am excited!!!  I have finally started adding garments to my wardrobe that I really love.  Sewing brings me so much joy.  I look forward to sharing with you over the next month.  Not Every day, mostly because I am the worst at dedicating computer time.  I would rather be sewing.  Or feeding my family, or cleaning my house which is not often lately because I can't stop sewing!!!!

See you soon, xoxo, Lisa


Alice top, LOVE

Saturday, April 4, 2015

I have finally started to create my spring/summer wardrobe.  Collecting patterns and gathering fabric has been way too much fun, along with patterns in my stash and fabric in my stash!

So far I have sewed up a pair of palazzo pants and 2 Alice tops.
The pants are super awesome!  I'll share pics of those after I sew up my second pair. 

On to the Alice top! 

I LOVEEEEEE this shirt so much.  It is definitely my style as it is feminine and loose fitting. 
Even though I has a small waist, I tend to like loose fitting tops especially when they cover my bum!  So this is perfect. 

First try ....  I used similar fabric as in the picture on the tessuti site.  I love stripes and when I saw the fabric at the shop, I knew it would by perfect.

                Made the XS and barely hemmed it as I like the long length!
                                    Side view!  Ummmmm, hello NOT prego lady!
                                       Back view, not too bad.

                                                 Tucked in, seems to look not as big.

 Second try!!!!  Better fit.  Made the XXS this time.  Definitely better fit in the arm holes and overall!
  I still love cozy plaid ... and this fabric is really light so I think it will work great for the spring and maybe long sleeves under in the fall, or with a cute sweater and boots!
                       So glad I made you ALICE! 

Here's to my spring/summer wardrobe!  May it be full of fun beautiful garments.  xoxox, Lisa
