Day Two

Deco tankdress by me
Grey cardigan - TJ Maxx
Woven leather belt - Stein Mart

I started off day two of Me-Made-May by waking up slowly with homemade bread, a full french press of coffee, and the New York Times.  After finishing my coffee and flipping through some old Burdas, I donned my favorite hot-weather dress (it was predicted to reach 90 F in D.C. today), and headed out to GStreet fabrics.  During the time it took me to metro and walk to the store, I somehow rationalized spending all of my clothing budget this month on fabric and notions.  It should come as no surprise that I came out of the store with 8 spools of thread, 3 zippers, one piece of madras shirting and countless other notions.  

Newly inspired by freshly cut fabric, I returned to my sewing studio-cum-apartment, ready to put my rotary cutter to fabric and my foot to the pedal.  While I can't say that I completed a new project, I have nearly completed a dress and a skirt that had been been neglected for the past year or so.  Hopefully in a couple days I will have finished projects to show you!  


  1. Hi, I found your blog through Me-Made-May. I really love the layered cardigan sweater in another post! So creative!

  2. I love your style! I am just going through all your posts looking at your pictures. Did you not post to the MMM flickr group? I don't know how I missed seeing all of your beautiful clothes!
