New SBCC 314 for the first day of MMM (so I guess I technically made it the last day of April)
Moneta V1 (which shortened horribly in the first washing even though I pre-washed. ugh)
Dixie DIY Summer Concert Tee V1 (wearing it as we speak/type/read…whatever)
A cardigan hacked from a T-shirt pattern

I’ve also given some thought to things I DON’T want to sew (for now). I’ve finally found some RTW jeans that fit decently well, so I’ve put sewing jeans on the back-burner for the time being. I used to HAVE to wear pants to work, but recent change in positions means I can basically wear whatever I feel like wearing (which is AMAZING!!!). Bras? Someday, but for now RTW will be fine. Anything structured/fitted? I have never worn that kind of stuff, so why sew it? I would like to do a few projects to expand my sewing skills, but the thought of sewing something I won’t wear just for the sake of it isn’t appealing to me right now.
So, what am I planning to sew (was all this anti-sewing talk worrying you?)? I’ve got a few things up my sleeve…
I’m working on perfecting this kinda self -drafted/cobbled-together dress pattern so I can make a few more out of linen this summer.
SHOES are totally still happening, people. Anyone want to jump on the shoe making bandwagon with me?
Knitting! Yep, I’ma kinda scared, but hopefully I can figure this sweater out with enough googling (the Myrna from Andi Satterlund, any tips?)
And, as always, I could use more active wear!
‘I, Megan @ TheGreenViolet.blogspot.com, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’14. I endeavour to wear one Me-Made item each day for the duration of May 2014. Additionally, I will strive to create some more field-work-appropriate garments. ‘
So, MMM14? Mission (mostly) accomplished! I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the second half of my pledge, which I totally didn’t accomplish, but with GOOD reason. Around the 1st of May I received the exciting news that some of my work responsibilities would change due to a colleague’s retirement (I only wish I could call this a promotion- more work but same title and same pay). I am doing almost no field work now (I haven’t done any since the start of May) and am officially in charge of all GIS/graphics needs for our small office. It has been SO nice to have the change of pace and the change of outfits. No more pants required!

I loved your fabric choices, May was bright and girly!
I didn't realize it at the time, but you are totally right!
Found you when googleizing the Butterick bathing suit pattern 5795……. and refreshed your feed. You're adorable—— thanks for sharing all! Especially shoes….. they're my new wanna wanna. Knitting? Honey, I got that! 😉 I knit Miette (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/KnittingContessa/miette) from Andi Satterlund, how's your project coming?
