- I have way too many me-made items made out of cotton and other natural fibres. That means ironing. I hate ironing. Yes, I'm still searching for that mythical man to enter my life and say, "I would love to iron for you." I know, dream on. Sew, in the meantime I have an ever growing pile of me-made natural fibre garments waiting for me to give up my mythical man search and get busy ironing.
- Vogue 1234 seems to be my go-to-weekend dress. I really need to make another one, it is so comfortable. And now that I know the secret to sewing knits thanks to that Me Sew Crazy blog post (thank you!) I have no excuses.
- I need pants and more cooler weather clothes. There were some rainy chilly days in May. And me-made-month had me realizing that I do not have a pair of pants in my closet that I have made myself. Hmm, this might be the challenge that I need this summer. I recently added Vogue 1309 to my pattern stash for the top. The pants included in the pattern are described as "loose-fitting through hips" and they just might work since my hips are my fitting challenge.
- My favourite part of Me-Made-May'12 was checking out what everyone else made. Everyone looked fabulous in their me-mades. And I discovered pattern companies that I didn't know existed.
