This is the left over fabric from this shirt. I actually made this for Kayly a few days after I made my shirt but never had the chance to post it. This is the 2nd time Kayly is wearing this so I quickly took a few pictures.
I know yesterday I said I will wear made by me clothes 4 times this week but the shirt that I was going to wear didn't turn out right. If I can fix it tonight, I will wear it tomorrow. =)
Tomorrow will be the last day of May. So it's been a whole monday already... It was a challenge for me with the MMM'13, but it's fun at the same time. I made it through May, found enough things made by me to wear 2 times a week without repeating. So proud of myself.
"Me Made May ' 13 made me..."
This is the phrase that I'm suppose to fill in to post with my last photo.
So here goes...
Me Made May '13 made me feel so proud of myself. When wearing clothes I made to work, people asking me "Did you make that?" --- I answer with PRIDE "YES!"
I also want to THANK the person who started the MMM challenge. It helps me wear my clothes without feeling afraid of people going to make fun of me, or find the mistakes I made. Also, want to THANK the people who left the comments on my photos, plus all the ones who added my photos as favorite. Those really really make me happy. I feel like "Oh, someone actually thinks my dress/shirt is nice." And those comments encourage and motivate me to keep on sewing. Just a group of nice people.
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
I will join MMM again in the future and hopefully will be able to wear 3 things a week without repeating.
Since it's the last week of May and I realized that I have more made by me clothes that I haven't worn for this challenge. So I decided to wear them to work 4 days this week (Monday was Memorial day).
Wore this on Tuesday to work
Wore this to work today.
No photographer, I have to take my own pictures =(
Got lots of compliments today wearing my purple dress to work. Every one was like "WOW". Makes me happy haha.
Somehow I feel so proud of myself. I have 10 decent things to wear without repeating that I made for this Me Made May ' 13 challenge.
Thanks to the person who started this MMM thing. Now I can wear clothes I made with pride.
Every one at work recently keep on asking me "Did you make that?", and I respond "Yeah!!!" with excitement , instead of "Yeah? Is it ugly?" --- like I'm afraid it's ugly and they are going to make fun of me.
I finished this I think 3 days ago but didn't have a chance to take pictures. It's shiny, so it makes me look fat. And yeah, it looks like it's a maternity shirt, too. But I like it. My husband actually said it's a nice one. Maybe in real life it looks better than in pictures. But I know for sure I will be wearing this next month for the Me Made May 13 challenge.
The neckline turned out pretty good. I like it. It was a little big, so I put elastic and ta-da!!!
Last Saturday I bought 7 different knitt fabrics to make nightgowns for her. You see those piles on the sofa? Those are the fabric. She choose which one I make next for her. This time was the pink hearts. She already told me, the next one would be the flamingos one.
I woke up at 5:30 on a Saturday and started sewing on her nightgown. Finished at 6:40. Went back to bed haha... at 7:45 she woke up and saw the new dress on the sofa and wanted to wear it on right away. "Mommy, I want to wear this forever." said Kayly.
