In Honestly

4 months, 17 weeks, 120 days

For the past few years in a row (specifically since 2012 when Lucky Lucille became a sewing blog) I tend to get a little sad come Spring time because of one particular thing: I’ve never been able to fully participate in Me Made May because I never have enough clothing I truly love in order to wear one me-made outfit, everyday, for 30 days.

That really bums me out because to me there’s something so magical about crafting your own clothes. The alchemy of it! I crave it on a deep personal level. I really want to be able to look down on a daily basis and count all the items I’m wearing that were crafted with my own two hands. …like a fabric wizard. Yes, this year I’m going to move up in the ranks of fabric wizardry.

I started off last year with the “anti-roundup roundup” in which I confessed how I pretty much hated everything I made in 2013 for various reasons (which I listed in that post). Basically my 2014 goals were 1.) Buy a new serger so I can be truly happy with how my garments look inside and out. 2.) Stop treating every project as a doomed-to-fail wearable muslin and actually pre-sew everything in muslin fabric to really work on fitting, and 3.) Find some TNT patterns that I can fit well and sew over and over again to build a completely handmade wardrobe.

Well I’m proud to say that in 2014 I did buy a new serger, and I did make more muslins than I ever have before, but the elusive TNT pattern still eludes me. Archer was very close, but still not The One according to my own nitpicky qualifications of what Rochelle’s Perfect Pattern entails. It’s like my Holy Grail. I don’t know what my TNT pattern looks like or if it even exists, but I will never stop fending off shrubbery knights, killer rabbits, and houses of virgins to find it. (Monty Python? Anyone?)

Remember my Twelve Pattern Challenge? Yeah I barely remember it either because it was such an epic fail haha!! Not because the idea was bad, but because I picked 12 patterns based on things I assumed I’d like to wear, not things I actually wear. My life is run by Lamellar Ichthyosis, kitty claw marks, and dog hair up the wazoo. I’m happiest when hermitting around at home in leggings and slouchy old man sweaters. Even though I have a serious (obsessive) weak spot for fashions of the past, I don’t enjoy wearing true vintage styles as much as I love researching them (obsessively). Though I will say I’m really loving 1920s inspired silhouettes right now! We’ll see how that manifests in the future…

So. My big goal, from this day until April 30th, is to sew a mix and match wardrobe so I can wear one handmade outfit every day for the month of May.

I have 4 months, 17 weeks, 120 days.

Who’s with me?

  • Lisette

    Yes, yes, this is the story of my life!
    If you want a 20s look, have you thought of Victory Patterns’ Hazel?
    http://www.victorypatterns.com/products/hazel/

    • I have seen that pattern before and it’s on my very, very long list of things to eventually sew! It’s really cute and I think I’d love the fit. Thanks for reminding me about that one!

  • Elena

    I totally feel your pain. It’s taken me a long time to learn to find the patterns and fabrics that will become clothes I wear everyday. I’m still learning, but so far knits seem to be the answer to my wardrobe blues (perfect for your new seget!).

    • I’m warming up to knits, slowly. Besides leggings, I don’t really wear them much so I haven’t had too much of an interest in sewing with knits until lately. …but I definitely see the allure!

  • Elena Knits

    I’m seeing this in a lot of blogs these days, and I’ve said the same myself. My resolution this year is sewing clothes that fit my style and get worn. I love dresses but I don’t wear them either, especially if the weather is not super hot. I’m sewing shirts this days that I will pair with trousers. For the moment it will be my jeans, but one day I’ll venture into handmade jeans. We’ll rock me made May this year!

    • Woo hoo! Yeah I haven’t worked up the nerve to try handmade jeans yet, mostly because I’m not wearing them so much lately, but I would like to attempt a pair eventually. Yaaaaaaayyy Me Made May!

  • kimber

    Shrubbery!! hehe

    I am with you on the quest for TNT patterns. Here is to a lucky 2015 full of TNTs for everyone!

  • Kat

    Really love the idea but feel overwhelmed by the whole wardrobe approach. I don’t sew so fast so I’ll do another approach. I plan to sew 1 piece for the upper body and 1 piece for the lower body per month. So at the end of the year I have a whole wardrobe.

    • Those are great goals, Kat! Very reasonable, and a smart way to approach a handmade wardrobe 🙂

  • JO

    I would love to participate too, but I am just starting to build my wardrobe and haven’t got great patterns. I read your anti-roundup roundup post and I can relate 100 %. I hate (almost) everything I have made, so I have decided to do lot more thinking and planning before sewing.

    I wish you good luck, I’ll be checking your progress. You choose the best prints 🙂

    • Thanks, good luck to you too! We can do this 🙂

  • I can’t wait to see what you’ll be wearing for MMM! I will certainly join you this year. I’m officially adding it to my blog’s goal page. I have a few things I made a while back, but they’re getting a little tight now, so by May they might be out of the question. This will involve some very mindful sewing, creating outfits, coordinating pieces…hmm. I’m going to have to make a list. This will probably involve a lot of mix and match/outfit mash-ups for the next few months.

    • I’m planning on lots of leggings and tunics! We’ll see what I can come up with. Mindful sewing and coordinating pieces is what it’s all about 🙂 Best of luck to you!

  • I think this is a marvelous idea! I can’t wait to see what you sew between now and then!

  • Not being a sewer, I fear I can’t take part, but you have got me thinking about how cool it would be to do perhaps do something similar involving on wearing second hand clothing and jewelry (with possible exceptions being made, natch, for underpinning and shoes – as not everyone has easy to fit feet especially when it comes to vintage shoes!). As always no matter what you share with us, darling gal, I feel inspired in new ways and truly thank you for the gift of that, my fashion wizard friend.

    ♥ Jessica

    • Thanks, Jessica! You know I did a very similar challenge to what you just described called The Seamless Pledge (http://seamlessblog.wordpress.com/the-pledge/). It’s still focused towards sewing, but it’s also a challenge to not buy any ready-made clothing. I went a solid 6 months without buying a single RTW item (besides undies and socks)! I shopped second-hand clothing and made things myself. I could see you doing a similar thing with vintage and thrift store finds 🙂

  • You can do it! Have you tried the Cake Espresso Leggings pattern? If you like leggings and have a serger, it could definitely be a TNT for you. Once you get your pattern template made, they are a cinch to make up. And you can make them in all sorts of cool prints. Just a thought….

    • Thanks, Heather! I just got a the leggings sloper by Burda Style and whipped them up this past weekend. Well, they’re almost done except for the elastic in the waist. I can easily see that becoming a TNT for me…

  • I wonder if I could chest a little and wear one handmade outfit, for every day off I have?

  • jannapyj

    I so enjoyed your Archers! Even though you say they’re not perfect…do you wear them on a regular basis? I finally built a woven tee pattern working off of a big four one that was awful in its original form. :o)

    • Thanks! I did actually wear my Archer’s quite a bit this summer but never got the fit/sizing nailed down to where any of them were as comfortable as I know they should have been. I’m going to work on it some more because I really do love that pattern 🙂

  • You can do it, Rochelle! I know you can! Pretty soon you’re going to have a drawer full of the best leggings and tunics ever 🙂

  • It’s only a flesh wound!

    I love this goal!! I remember the pure elation I felt when I finally had enough me mades to participate in Me Made May! It’s definitely a heady feeling. I love, love your woodland fairy style and really look forward to seeing your new makes 🙂

    • Hehe!

      I can feel the pure elation radiating from everyone who participates! I can’t wait until it’s my turn 🙂

  • The good news is that for me, at least, and many other people, more wearable clothing is usually quicker to sew than the less wearable stuff! Leggings? Couple of hours, maybe! You can do this, girl! But no pressure if you don’t want to. 🙂 Sewing’s supposed to be fun!

    • So true!! Yep, leggings are in the works as I type! So far no pressure 😉

  • When I started blogging (2012, wow it’s been that long?), I wanted to participate in the MMM too, but I was a sewing newbie. I made it 2013 my year, while I did wear a lot of Me Mades, I wasn’t satisfied enough to take pictures. It’s part because I’m lazy, but another part was that I didn’t know how to accessorize to make an outfit. Yes, this year 2014, I’m making an effort to join in on MMM’14 with full force with you!

    I hope you find your TNT, I have a couple that I love to make and I go back to it whenever I’m in a sewing rut and it takes me out of it. I’m sure you’re bound to find your TNT!

    • Accessorizing is something I need to get better at too! Which sounds kind of silly to say out loud but it’s totally true. I keep seeing all these other bloggers with amazing go-to patterns and I’m like man I want that!! I’ll get there. I just need to work a little harder 🙂

      #MMMay15 here we come!

  • David Coffin

    Boy, do I ever hear your frustration! And after all the wonderful things you’ve made and shared here, to STILL have to say you basically HATE everything…wow! I must say, though I’m not that surprised when I hear you talk about still searching for that elusive TNT pattern. I don’t think it’s actually out there!

    In my own long efforts to actually like the clothes I make, I’ve found the most promising path to a TNT pattern, for the most basic shapes like shirts and pants anyway, is to separate the basic part from the details, zero in on getting that basic to fit with multiple critically examined and carefully tweaked muslins until it’s really right, then only use existing patterns for their details that you can pull out and apply to your basic, or as I think of it, your “block”.

    So, you might start with your size-0 Archer, but after thoroughly fitting/customizing just the body of it until you really do love it, it’s not an Archer any more, it’s your shirt block, with shoulders and armholes and a body balance that all reflect YOUR choices and YOU, not the pattern’s or the necessarily generic body form the pattern-maker built it upon. Once you do that, you can add any sort of sleeves, collars, closures, tucks, pleats, hems, whatever you see on other patterns or make up, plus you can even grade it up for looser over-shirts and jackets or down for snug-fitting styles, whatever you want.

    I simply don’t believe that for most bodies, there’s EVER going to be a purchased pattern that somehow just happens to get our basic body fit exactly right, no matter how wonderful its details are or how beautifully we put it together. Designing and making clothes that really work is hard enough without having at least a few basic, fully custom blocks that we KNOW fit to start with.

    • Wow, thanks for all the fantastic advice, David! I shouldn’t say I HATE everything I make, but I do have a big bin full of hand-made garments I’ve worn once or twice and then decide I just don’t like them. Usually that deciding factor is the way they fit even though, up until this week, I haven’t been able to put my finger on why, even though they’re made in my size. I started taking a Craftsy class all about how to adjust the back, neck, and shoulders, thinking all my fitting problems were related to how the shoulder fit in the front and under the arm, but come to find out it’s actually some non-standard things I have going on in the BACK that’s causing all my problems. I’ve seen the light haha! It all makes so much sense now, and yes, for a super depressing micro-second I realized …man, I am really and truly NEVER going to be able to sew any pattern straight out of the envelope, unless people start drafting for a rounded upper back, forward sloping shoulders, narrow shoulders, a sway back, and general string-bean-y-ness. It’s more my goal to have one or two really fantastic slopers that I can customize a bit to build my whole me-made wardrobe. …by May. I’m nothing if not ambitious 😉

      • Glad you found my perspective useful, Rochelle; I really do think that blocks are not just the most likely, but also the most EFFICIENT, way to get beyond fit and back to the good stuff.

        I kind of hate the term “sloper”, though, not just because it’s got so many different definitions, but mostly because it suggests having to go all the way back to some sort of serious pattern drafting study before we can even begin. I much prefer the term/concept of a “block” because (at least the way I see it as useful for sewists) that’s any garment or pattern simply pared down to its essentials and then perfected, so it could be any shirt, say, or jacket, not anything as truly basic as a fitting shell or body-shape sloper or some such thing, but something much quicker to get to and to get right, and not requiring a lot of additional pattern-making, dart-pivoting, slashing/spreading training, etc, etc. Plus, it’s exactly what I’ve been doing for the last several months: Copying shirts I like and turning them into blocks, so it’s on my brain…and hopefully about to be extensively documented on my own “Sometime real soon!!” blog…now THAT’S ambitious to me, far more demanding than tweaking up a block:). I refer to YOUR blog often as I dream about my own…so inspiring, yet admittedly not a little daunting!

        I did guest-post for another blogger recently a bit about how I’d go about tweaking an Archer muslin into a block, which you can see at my blog linked to from my disqus page…a start anyway:)

  • What a goal! We are all here for you though! My 15 year old daughter is working on sewing 5 separates before March 1st – the day her Personal Project is due at school. She is 4′ 8.75″ tall due to cancer (Which she just found out she is in Complete Remission last month) and NOTHING fits her. We have been taking classes together on pattern resizing and sewing muslins. I never sewed a muslin before because most commercial patterns fit me. What a learning experience! Her goal is to eventually make slopers to create her own TNT patterns.

    Now, as for Me Made May, please do take care of yourself! That is a big goal and tendinitis is nothing to fool around with. Take it easy on yourself!

    • Hooray for remission! That’s fantastic news!! It’s amazing how much you can learn just by taking a basic fitting class, isn’t it? It’s so neat that you and your daughter can experience that together. I wish her the best of luck with her school projects! 🙂

      I promise I will not do anything too detrimental to my wrists to reach this goal. I’m learning to take lots of breaks and allow myself to spread things out over several days instead of GO GO GO!! like I usually am. I’ll be good 😉

  • Jane

    This challenge sounds amazing! One of my resolutions for 2015 has been to a) blog the sewing I’m actually doing, but b) to sew intentionally, for actual gaps in my wardrobe. Your challenge sounds similar, and I look forward to seeing what you do with it and maybe sewing along!

    • I love the goal to sew intentionally! That’s something I’m working on too as a deeper part of this me-made-may goal. I see lots of leggings and simple tunics and old man sweaters in my future 🙂

      Here’s to intentional sewing in 2015 and beyond!

  • Line / alleelskeragnes

    Dear Rochelle,
    I will look very much forward to seeing what you will show us all by the month of May. Your blog is a great inspiration, and one of the ones that made me challenge myself sewing my own clothes. I really want to become a better sewist, and I love your detailed blogposts. Thank you for taking the time making them!
    I also enjoy your posts about the WWII reenactment! It is always great fun to see what you plan to wear and to read your thoughts about the outfits.
    Good luck in 2015!

    – Line / @alleelskeragnes

    • Thank you so much, that’s so kind to say. I will certainly continue on with the sewing posts. I hope you keep on sewing, too! Sadly I’ve had to miss several of my favorite reenactments this past year but I’m definitely still interested in them, and I’m very much looking forward to a few come summer time.

      Thanks for reading along and supporting Lucky Lucille 🙂

  • rachlovespenguins

    Best of luck cutting down that elusive Holy Grail Pattern tree with…. a herring! Just watch out for the majestic moose, and for heaven’s sake do NOT carve your initials into its side, no matter who gave you the toothbrush!

    My 2015 goal is to make ONE thing. Just one. I don’t even care what at this point, but I’ll probably aim for a blouse. The only things I actually made last year were for other people. For myself I only managed some alterations. Not that those weren’t important and didn’t make me feel good for accomplishing them, but still. :/

    • Thank you! I have no doubts you’ll reach your goal for 2015. In fact, sewing just one thing is a really fantastic goal to have. Resolutions don’t have to be crazy or complicated. I love it: JUST MAKE ONE THING. This MMM goal was my version of trying NOT to complicate things since I’m kind of the queen of making things more complicated than I need to make them haha! I have to literally tell myself “Keep it simple, Stupid!”

      Well here’s to accomplishing our goals in 2015!

      And remember, A five ounce bird could not carry a 1 pound coconut.

  • I’ve done MMM twice now, and I have to say my accessories saved me the first year, me-made-wise. This year I’m hoping to have enough separates that I can successfully participate without having to plan every day’s outfit in advance, and also so I can wear the RTW stuff I like with something me-made and not feel contrived. Also, I’m getting some popcorn to watch the tweets between you and Gillian.

    • That’s a great point. I do plan to give myself an allowance to buy extra accessories (which is something I don’t normally do) so I can wear lots and lots of repeats but still keep things fresh. As far as Gillian tweets and popcorn goes, you’ll be entertained to know she dared me to sew a pair of leggings by Sunday this week, WHICH! I have the pattern traced and cut out and I’m pre-washing the fabric as I type 😉 #sewingdares

      • Plus? If you make your accessories, they count as me-made! 🙂

  • Christine Griffin

    I’m definitely working on clothes for MMM’15!! I’m going to need to make more “lounge” clothes, since I’ll only be working 3 days a week and 90% of my sewn-clothes are for work 🙁 Drat, I’ll need pjs! 🙂

    • Woohoo! Who doesn’t love lounge clothes?! I hardly know of any other types of clothes haha!

  • Emma Nolley

    I’ve felt the same way about Me Made May the last couple of years! Thanks for the post, and gentle, encouraging reminder. We can do it!!

    • YES WE CAN! Where’s our MMM version of Rosie the Riveter? Now that’s a poster I could use for my sewing room 😉

  • Stephanie Thorpe

    It takes a while (read: years) to build up a good me-made wardrobe. First, you have to get your sewing skills up to par. Then you have to figure out what you like to wear vs what you like to sew. Then you have to actually make the stuff. Then you have to realize that you need more practical garments rather than just pretty pretties. Then you make some of those and finally you get to that full closet of clothes you actually want to wear.

    I’ve done Me-Made May before and it’s pretty fun. I didn’t do it this year because my work had a more specific dress code so I’d have to wear more rtw. I’m kind of at the point now that, barring work requirements, it’s not really hard for me to wear something I’ve made everyday for a month. But I started sewing in 2010 so I’ve been at it a while.

    • I realize this whole me-made wardrobe wont happen over night, but I want to get in the mindset of project planning with the underlying theme of “will I wear this everyday?” (which apparently I haven’t been doing lol). I think this goal is a great way to force myself to think like that with a bigger picture in mind.

  • Good luck, I can’t wait to see your progress! I will have to wait another year before I participate as I have only just started making my own clothes. Your blog is so inspiring, I will just live vicariously through you this time! all the best.

    • Thank you so much! Keep at it and keep working towards those few staple wardrobe pieces. I bet you’ll have plenty to wear by next year 🙂

  • Jaii-Lana van Leeuwen

    I’m so in! It is one of my newyears resolutions to be part of me made may. Although seeing the actual time left is a little daunting. I am a big fan of refashioning clothes so I will include them in my personal pledge.

    • Hey refashioning totally counts! Me Made May, let’s do this! 🙂

  • Ni! I think the 12 pattern challenge was a good idea, but like you said, if it is clothing that you like and not clothing that you actually wear, then you end up with a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear. I don’t think ll make it to me-made-may this year, maybe I’ll wear something once or twice a week, but I *am* focusing on making very wearable garments that coordinate with each other. I’ve started by choosing fabrics that I love and now come the daunting task of–you said it–finding patterns that work. Best of luck 🙂

    • Thanks, Carlee! Making very wearable garments that coordinate is so important (as I’m finding out!) so we pretty much have the same goal 🙂

  • Good luck! I’m at the stage now where the vast majority of my clothing is handmade. I think there might be ~5 pieces I wear that were bought at one stage or another. One thing that helped was not buying any RTW at all, which means you have to start making all of your every day clothing (t-shirts, leggings, sweaters, etc).

    • That’s awesome! So inspiring. You’re right, I need to start sewing that everyday stuff if I really want to fill my closet and stop buying RTW. Which, quite frankly, I hate shopping anyways unless we’re talkin’ fabric so it shouldn’t be that hard 😉 😉

      • You end up developing this crazy excitement for really boring clothing, because you actually really needed another t-shirt/undies/whatever. I just need to find good fabric for t-shirts!! I have some stuff from Organic Cotton Plus on it’s way to me in NZ and fingers crossed that’s as good as I hope it is.

  • Juliana Bibas

    I was able to do it this past May and it was so fun! (I only wimped out one day and wore a bought knit dress, but I was sick, so I think I get a pass, right?) I always enjoy reading about your sewing adventures and the discoveries you make about personal style, as it helps me to think through my own style/sewing issues! I will say that I’ve sewn enough “cake” garments these past few months that I’m in good shape, but you know, there are always more Frankendresses to sew. 🙂 I’ve got fabric to make at least four more. Oops.

    • Juliana, that’s awesome! (I think a sick day totally gets a pass) I’m looking for a good few piece-of-cake patterns to get me started. Which I think is why I’m so interested in 1920s styles lately. I was shopping around in a vintage store with my Aunt the other day (she bought things, I just mostly tried not to drool on stuff lol) and I was so in love with the 20s day dresses. They’re quite literally just rectangles sewn with a fancy collar or two! WHY AM I NOT SEWING FANCY RECTANGLES RIGHT NOW? lol

      • Juliana Bibas

        The “one-hour” dress of the 1920s is very easy! I’ve seen several people make them and they are lovely and easy!! Plus, depending on the fabric, so customizable style-wise. My figure isn’t really right for 1920s styles, but I’m really interested in the early to mid 1930s right now, so I’m scheming ways to recreate some looks that are still practical with my life (which includes an astonishing amount of bodily fluids that don’t belong to me!) My Frankendress pattern is pretty much a 1930s silhouette housedress, but I’m really digging Hooverette dresses right now. I just need to find a style that isn’t too fussy for me. 🙂

  • Spencer Clark

    I’ve done Me made May the past several years! My Goal was to also sew a bunch of new things for this year. Maybe make a sweater or two as well. Good luck!

    • That’s so amazing and inspiring! This will finally be my year to join in on the MMM fun. Save me a seat? 😉

  • Heather Dewar

    I am definitely in! Have updated my blog, and signed up to a Blogging 101 course as well – this year WILL be the year of successful blogging for me! I can’t wait for Me Made May, am going to start today by sewing up some UFOs that are sitting in my sewing room – all cut out and ready, just haven’t sewn them together!

    http://dancinginmypjs.wordpress.com

    • That’s fantastic! You know one thing that really helps me with my blog is to try to get more specific about goals. Instead of just me saying “It’s my goal to post more” I try to say “I’m going to post three times a week about topics xy&z” and then it’s easier to see your goals manifest 🙂 Best of luck with blogging and sewing in 2015!

      • Heather Dewar

        I am definitely going to use that advice – I think over this long weekend I’m going to work on a schedule of posts – I think aiming for twice a week as a start will mean I get on with it!

  • Lyric

    Appreciate the need for newness, a fresh start so kudos to the blog facelift. One thing about change, if you don’t like it you can always . . . CHANGE. Happy 2015, Rochelle.

    Oh, I really missed doing a sew-a-long with you. I hope one day you choose to lead us in another vintage style cotton SAL. They are glorious and the 1940’s blouse I made was a hit (too bad I ruined it in wash). Oops, guess I’ve got to make another, bwwwahhh haaaa.

    Cheers,

    Lyric

    • Oh don’t worry, I’m still going to do the Fall For Cotton sew-along in March! …or more like Spring for Cotton I guess? lol! Either way, it will be vintage inspired and fun 🙂

  • I love that idea! I’d love to participate, however I probably won’t have the time to dedicate to it.
    I’m rooting for you though, and can’t wait to see what you come up with for “Me Made May”

    • Yeah I tried to map out exactly how many items I’d like to complete, and in order to reach that number I’d need to make at least one thing a week. It will definitely be a challenge! Thanks for the encouragement 🙂

  • This honesty is beautiful and refreshing! Go FOR IT!!! I’m rooting for you!

  • You can do it!!!

  • Ellen

    I’m in, just have to get moving on it. I’m sure I can fit it in among the new loom (love it), my new fascination with kumihimo (super relaxing), my knitting, and daily life. But I can do it, that’s one joy of retirement, time to do whatever you want.

    • I love that as a motto: “time to do whatever you want”. I’m going to adopt that 😉 Let’s start making awesome things!

  • Have you sewn leggings yet? That might be a good place to start! I like the Cake Espresso pattern, because it’s a customised fit…and maybe you’d enjoy a raglan sweatshirt pattern (made of sweater knit is my favourite) so that if nothing else, at least you have me-made lounge clothes?
    Good luck, and enjoy the sewing process! 🙂

    • That’s on my list! I bought the leggings sloper from Burda and some Kaufman Laguna Jersey, but I haven’t made them yet. I’m really excited to give knits another try this year! 🙂

      • I #sewingdare you to make a pair by …Sunday? It only takes an hour, and they’ll be wearable even if they aren’t perfect! Come on… dooooo iiiiiiittttttt! (ps. Only if it’s fun.)

        • !!!!!! Oh you’re so on! …I’m scared lol

          • I’m just a tweet or IG post away, if you have any questions! (Or email, if we are going old-school! ;P)

          • Here’s the basics: Cut 2 legs. Sew both inner seams. Put one inside the other, right sides together, and sew crotch seam. Serger elastic on. Fold over, zigzag down. Annnnnnnnd done! (I don’t hem them, but you could… but who looks at your ankles???)

          • Okay I got this! 🙂 🙂 …but I might be hitting you up on twitter lol
