Way overdue Me Made May update!

So much has happened since my last update that kept me away from sewing, so I barely even thought about my blog!

I started out trying to document my Me-Made outfits in May on Instagram.  As I suspected, I didn't really have enough me-mades that fit me to be able to wear them every day.  And even then, I didn't always remember to get a photo when I was wearing one of my makes.  So, here are the ones I did manage to get:

May 3: One of my Ottobre makes that I managed to find time to take in.

May 4th: My first Colette Wren.  I had a job interview down in OR that day and this photo was taken after I got back home.

May 5th: My first Seamwork Mesa, which I started a blog post about, but never posted.  I didn't like it when I first made it, but I like it quite a bit now that I've lost a little weight and it doesn't hug my tummy so much.

May 8th: See Kate Sew Dreamer Tee with RTW jeans and my latest Coheed and Cambria hoodie.  :)

May 9th: Seamwork Astoria with black jeans.

May 12th: My birthday Wren with my goto blue Helen's Closet Blackwood cardigan.

May 16th: Another make from Ottobre.  This one is Twig from the 5/2015 issue.

May 17th: My Burda Bohemian maxi.

May 18th: This is a princess seam dress my mom made me way back in high school with my Swoon Scarf Neck cardigan from the Fabricista challenge.

May 22nd: My 2nd Seamwork Mesa that I managed to make in May.

May 28th:  I also wore it again when I went to Vancouver, BC for my daughter's 21st birthday.

Well, there you have it.  All the photos that I have, most of them terrible.  We finally got our old house fixed up and rented, so hopefully I'll FINALLY have some time to sew and catch up on my blog.  I have made a 3rd Seamwork Mesa that I hacked that I'm excited to blog about soon.  If you follow my Instagram, then you've already seen the spoilers.
