Me Made May 2015 Wrap-Up

Another May has come and gone, and again I jumped right in to Me Made May. It’s just so much fun to see what people are sewing and share my work. It seems like it was a bigger thing on Instagram than Flickr this year. Following is my image gallery for the month. In previous […]

Me Made May 2014 Wrap-Up

If you’re a longtime reader, you know that I never miss a Me-Made-May. I have so much fun with the MMM Flickr group every year, and this year has been no exception. The group is like a little party of supportive, accomplished friends to meet up with for a few minutes every day. If you […]

Another Me-Made-May has come and gone. If you have been reading my blog for a while, you know that I love these photo events. The community of Me Made May Flickr group makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. Following are photos of what I wore all last month. Most photos have links under them that […]

Me Made May

It’s almost that time of year again, and again I will be participating in Zoe’s Me Made May Challenge! I’ll be wearing handmade clothes all through May.

MMMay 12 — Will I?

I, Claudine, from ‘Adventures in Couture’, may or may not sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’12. I endeavour to wear only me-made clothing (excluding underwear, socks, and the occasional item of knitwear) each day for the duration of May 2012. But wait, I do that anyway. On the other hand, I can’t resist […]

OWOP

For those who have been living under a blogging rock, I’ll explain that OWOP stands for One Week, One Pattern, Tilly’s genius idea for a sewing challenge. Participants choose one pattern and wear one or more garments made from that pattern for a whole week. In my real life, I’m not much of a joiner, […]
