Dommage / Damage


I haven't talked about Me-Made-May this year, because, frankly there was not much to report. I wore the same thing as usual, I wear something Me-Made on most days anyway. There are huge gaping blackholes in my wardrobe because I refuse to sew with a plan, I have way too much clothes to begin with so I might as well have fun. And, I need to learn to make pants properly, I've stated that on previous events.
This of course has absolutely no bearing on how much fun I think it is. As I have already stated in my thank you note : this year has been the best yet, more people, more craftsmanship, more style, are all more inspiration to sew... more! Go check the Flickr Pool for confirmation.
My Me-made ended with a tear as my beautiful Nicole Miller boat skirt refashion suffered a bit of damage in the back pleat, which I saw yesterday while ironing.
Does anybody anywhere has a suggestion on how to fix this elegantly? The fabric is from the 50's and it's almost brittle and I'm just so sad!


J'ai pas trop parlé de Me-Made-May cette année, parce que franchement, j'avais pas grand chose à dire. J'ai porté la même chose que d'habitude parce que je porte au moins un truc que j'ai fait moi-même tous les jours. Y'a des grands trous noirs dans ma garde-robe parce que je refuse de coudre selon un plan établi, j'ai déjà bien trop de vêtements comme ça, autant avoir du fun quand je couds. Et, il faut que j'apprenne à faire des pantalons mais ça je vous l'ai déjà dit.
Tout ça n'empêche pas que les Me-Made sont super le fun à faire et comme je l'ai dit dans mes remerciements à Zoé, cette année a été la meilleure, plus de gens, plus de talents, plus de style, plus d'inspiration pour coudre...plus. Allez sur le Groupe Flickr vous allez voir ce que je veux dire.
Mon "mois-fait-main" s'est terminé avec une petite déchirure dans le pli arrière de ma super jupe marine refaçonnée avec un patron de Nicole Miller. Je m'en suis aperçu en repassant.
Est-ce que vous sauriez comment réparer ça avec un peu d'élégance? Le tissus est des années 50 et il est fragile et je suis si triste!

Me-Made-May

May 25th - Self-drafted skirt

Me-Made-May is over, thank you Zoe, it was a lot of fun. If you don't mind, I'd like to share a few quick thoughts with you.


May 29th - T-shirt refashion

  • You should go see the Flickr Pool for inspiration. The stylishness, creativity and craftmanship is amazing.
  • I haven't made many comments for lack of time, but I really loved everything.
  • I need to go on a World Tour to trace back all the wonderful fabric I saw.
  • I should take another look at Burda Patterns, some of the girls have made wonderful garments with them.
  • I don't plan on planning, SWAP is not for me, but I should plan on making a few tops other than cut up t-shirts.
  • My pant making skills need a lot of work.
  • I have to take better pictures, iPhone pictures are a bare minimum.
  • I need to do something with my hair!
May 28th - Another Nicole Miller with boats


Thank you so much for your kind comments, it was really nice to rumage through my sewing history. Now on to some new stuff.


May 30th - BWOF pants

May 22nd and 24th : Skirts


These are just a couple of skirts, May 22nd is the Nicole Miller I told you about, a tried and true pattern.


And this one is a 15 year old! It's a Modes et Travaux pattern, which I cannot find. If I find it again, I'll post it because it's a 12 piece skirt with godets and it's perfect to go dancing.

Me-Made-May : The Update



I've been Sidetracked but it was a good thing. Look at those totally KawaĂŻ bags. (They are gifts, but I can show them, the recipients don't have web access).
Frankly, it wasn't very interesting anyway, here is a picture heavy post, to catch up, nothing very particular about what I've been wearing, the weather was awful so lotsa layers involved, but today is beautiful, so I am wearing a wedding dress to celebrate! More on that later.


May 13th, Living Colour t-shirt refashion. My favorite, it got so much wear, I had to dye it again. BTW, I did see them in Paris in 91!



May 14th, 4 pannels skirt, t-shirt refashion.



May 15-16th, slow day at the ranch, Burda Kimono T refashion. Another concert I've seen, in Nantes in 93-94.


May 17th, another cut up t-shirt. I should count them!


May 18th, too cold for comfort, this is a wool Nicole Miller top that I lined in polarfleece for a job where I had to work outside in November. I am getting seriously depressed by this weather now...


I've made the skirt several times, if the weather holds out, I'll show you.


May 19th, Kenzo skirt I've talked about already.
That's it for now. Hope I didn't bore you. See you later!
