Me-Made-May: May 4

Me-Made-May: May 4

Today's outfit is the creatively titled "Dress #1." It's the first dress that I made after deciding to start sewing my own clothes back in September. I never wrote up the details about this dress so I might as well share some more information on today's Me-Made post.

Despite its 1960s-like appearance, the dress pattern is actually Decades of Style #3007 — the 1930s Button Dress. You can't see from the photo, but there's a really cute tie at the back of the neck as well as a tie along the waist and buttons on the bodice.

I don't remember why its so short compared to the pattern but I'll just assume that I did that deliberately. Sure. I'm happy to report in the eight months since I've made it, it's gone from a fairly tight wiggle dress to what you see here.

I'm participating in the Me-Made-May challenge. That means that, during the month of May, I will endeavor to only wear clothing that I crafted myself. 

See all days from the challenge.
