My 3rd Me-Made-May’14 post and I’m still hanging in there! How are you doing?
Monday, May 12 – a knit skirt I made long ago. Sophie has checked it out and given her approval.
Tuesday, May 13 – Along with my pea coat, blogged here, my jean jacket is another favourite of mine! I wore it for about an hour this morning, then the sun came out in full force and I had to take it off and carry it around.
Wednesday, May 14 – My skirt. A lovely fabric, not knit, probably polyester, glad I grabbed it when I saw it!
I also wore this hand made necklace. Not a Me-Made, but a purchase from a Christmas Craft Fair. Apparently the lady crotchets them out of metallic ladder yarn. Does anyone out there know how to do this?
Thursday, May 15 – my knit top, perfect for the hot weather we have been having.
Of course, Friday is Jeans day at work. Saturday and Sunday are usually even more casual – yoga pants and T’s. Monday is a holiday here, so even more casual clothes. There will be lots of time to relax and sew this weekend!
Just a thought – It seems most of my Me-Made’s are for the office. This all makes me wonder what I would be sewing for myself if I worked from home? Would I then have a massive collection of T’s, jeans and yoga pants? Do you live in T’s, jeans and yoga pants too? Or do you sew and wear a variety of things? What do you sew up the most?

I can’t believe you made a jean jacket! I’m a cheater… I bought mine. I like that you sew such a variety of pieces. I’ve been pretty much a dressmaker but then I did challenge myself to make something different for MMM14. Better get on that! I do work from home, and I wear casual dresses almost every day. My friends’ little girls call me fancy, but the truth is, I’m more comfortable in dresses than jeans!
I made the jean jacket about a year ago. I told myself to think of it as a shirt – the pattern looked more like a shirt style anyway. I have learned so much since I made it, I want to make another and fix my “mistakes”! So I guess it’s all in your personality as to what you choose to sew and wear. If I wore a dress at home they would think I was going somewhere without them! I’m looking forward to seeing all your Me-Made’s and your “something different”! Thanks for reading/commenting!
You made your own blue jean jacket, wow. Denim intimidates me. The necklace is made by a technique called finger croteching. The reason I know this is because I have one and I know the lady who makes them! Small world. If you are interested I could contact her and ask for a lesson for both of us if you are interested? Beautiful skirt pattern and love the blue jean jacket. Cheers. 🙂
I think we got them from the same lady. I am pretty sure if it. Thanks for the nice comments!
No photos from me but so far Me-Made-May 14 is on track.
That jacket looks great !
Love the knit top, great print. I’ve been wearing a lot more homemade stuff this month as I slowly build up my wardrobe. I’d like to try a jacket sometime soon – I’ve been a bit intimidated, but I got some free material that I could try it out with. Great job!
Thank you! The pattern I used for my jacket looked more like a shirt than a jacket, it wasn’t too hard at all! You should try it!
I like the cat curled around the knit skirt…:)
Yes, cat hair everywhere is a real treat in our house!
