I think I shared about this before, but when I really got into sewing last year, Me Made May was in the back of my mind as a tentative goal for my handmade wardrobe. Previous to this sewing craze, I lived for a really long time on hand-me-downs and thrift store finds - and don't… Continue reading Me Made May Reflections
Another Willow Tank. I love this pattern! Seriously, people. If anyone came to me and asked me to teach them to sew clothes, this is what I would start with. Not that I know enough to teach someone how to sew, but this pattern is so good even I could teach someone to sew it.… Continue reading Sewing the Willow Tank (with a stripe hack)

Ok, guys. It's here. I have been waiting for this May ever since last May. This time last year, I had just finished sewing my third dress for myself in as many years, and had just started using Instagram to search for sewing inspiration. Suddenly, it was Me Made May everywhere I looked, and my… Continue reading Let’s Start Me Made May!!
