Your Me-Made-May Makes

May has drawn to a close, and with it ends “Me Made May,” the fantastic month-long celebration of wearing handmade clothing, where makers wear and post their handmade makes online. If you’re not already familiar with this online event, you can see all kinds of posts under the #mmmay16 tag on Instagram (even if you don’t have an IG account, you can click on that link to see all of the photos!). There’s also a great interview with Zoe Edwards, who started Me Made May, over on the Colette blog.

I love seeing all of your Me Made May makes, so here’s a roundup of a few of my favorites!

Don’t you love these Rubies? These ladies used the Ruby Dress & Top pattern to create some great dresses and tops:

These Ruby tops are all from Hayley’s Instagram feed:Your Me-Made-May Makes!
I love how Hayley added the Washi cap sleeve to so many of her Ruby tops … am contemplating a tutorial.

I just love how so many people share their love for sewing and wearing handmade during the month of May. I’m so happy that so many of you are using my patterns to make clothing for yourselves and so glad you are enjoying the patterns. Thanks to all of you who shared your lovely MBR makes for us to enjoy!

PS. Special thanks to Jess for linking up all of these photos to their owners; that was no small feat!

  1. Oh I would love it if you made a tutorial for cap sleeves for the Ruby! Love your site and patterns

  2. Do you think a medium weight smooth silk would work for the Washi dress? I am a competent quilter with a walking foot so I am confident I can manage the silk. Thank you!
