Me Made May 2018 – Round Up

Part of my Me Made May pledge this year was to do a round up blog post.  So here it is! My entire pledge this year was: I, Sarah McKenna, of Like Sew Amazing, sign up as a participant of Me Made May. I endeavour to wear at least one handmade garment every day for […]

The cat’s pyjamas

I had some of this stunning Cat Nap Pink Art Gallery Fabrics cotton that I bought from Sew Me Sunshine in my stash for a little while. I was planning on making the Carolyn pyjamas by Closet Case Patterns, however, as I always wear vest tops to bed, I didn’t want to make the Carolyn […]

Seamwork Audrey jacket – Pattern Review

Is it wrong that I decided to make a denim jacket mainly as somewhere to display my sewing pins and patches?! As denim is a sturdier, more durable fabric, it is the perfect place for your pin and badge collection. I had seen a couple of versions of the Seamwork magazine Audrey jacket (I’m looking […]

Birthday Anna dress

I made my first By Hand London Anna dress a couple of months ago and I absolutely love everything about it and resolved to make another one very soon. I was lucky enough to get some money for my birthday earlier in the month so headed to Liberty at the first opportunity and bought a […]

Sewing workwear and my BHL Pencil Skirt

Me Made May 17 – final round up

With May drawing to a close, I thought I would blog about the final few days and a little summary of the month and what I got out of it. Day 29   As it was a particularly rainy bank holiday Monday and I had lots of sewing to do, I pretty much wore my pjs […]

Me Made May 17 – week four round up

That’s the last full week of Me Made May – only a few more days to go! Day 22 The sun was out in full force so I finally got to wear one of my favourite me made summer dresses – the Rosie dress that was free last summer with Simply Sewing Magazine. I bought this gorgeous […]

Three quarters of the way through Me Made May and we are on the home straight! Day 15 Despite a brief glimpse of sun last week, we were back to pretty much constant rain by Monday. I wore by navy striped ponte Sew Over It Molly dress from their City Break collection. This is another […]
