Me Made May Week 3 & One more competition...

Sunday, May 22, 2016
Brrrrrrr, it's cold. It's freezing! Winter is here


This week marks the final Me Made May competition and Caitlan at Indie Stitches is giving the winner their choice of any of her PDF Patterns!

Caitlan stocks a beautiful selection of patterns as well as a carefully curated range of fabrics (which are currently 30% off - it's where I got the flannel for my latest Afternoon Shift - photos to come). I also have some of this beautiful stuff to make a Hunter Tank (whenever summer comes back...) and have my eye on this and this that would work beautifully for a summery pattern idea I currently have.

To enter, just leave a comment telling us which of Caitlan's patterns you'd be after if you won.

Wearing - unblogged Afternoon Shift


Wearing - Anemery Dress

I've not been great about getting photos again this week, like I mentioned above though, I did finish another Afternoon Shift in the snuggliest flannel I've ever worn. I wore it the same afternoon I finished it, and then again the next day, and right now I'm writing this in the comfort of my handmade PJ's, but will more than likely pop it on again today, it feels like snow might be on the way....

I also wore my Anemery dress on Saturday (complete with long sleeve layers) for Oscar's birthday party. He turned one on Thursday and I just have no words to express how fast this year has gone and how much has changed.

I've been a bit slack with my knitting goal this month, it's just been too warm to want to knit. But with winter firmly in our neighbourhood, blowing a gail outside (but with a toasty roaring fire inside), it's definitely feeling like a knitting kind of day.

    Thanks for a great giveaway!

  11. Looking forward to making my own Afternoon Shift dresses. I have the pattern and fabric, but have been too busy sewing for my daughter to make something for myself. I would choose the Hazel dress by Victory Patterns. Cute retro style! --Donna B.

  12. Ooh, I've heard a lot of good things about that Robert Kaufman flannel and it really looks lovely in your photo. If I won the PDF pattern, I would probably choose the Camas blouse as it's just a little different to all the other t-shirt fabric patterns I have, plus I used to have a RTW top similar to it and I loved it. :-)

  13. Loving the flannel - looking forward to seeing the photos from the Afternoon Shift! I also really love the Natalie top - such a flattering shape!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I think I'd choose the Roxanne pattern!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I'd love to make a Goldstream Peacoat for my husband!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'd love the Afternoon shift/blouse pattern- so versatile and comfortable, yet dressy!

    ReplyDelete
  17. ooo the Strathcona Henley would be a perfect introduction to menswear!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I would get the Morgan Boyfriend jeans pattern. I need to overcome my fear of pants eventually :-)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love the Newcastle Cardigan, but I have also been wanting a copy of the Bronte top for a long time!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I've seen so many beautiful Moneta dresses this month, in all my trawling through the MMM instagram and flickr feeds that I'm thinking I really need to try it for myself. So it would have to be the Colette Moneta pattern for me.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I've gone back and forth on the Cambie for so long, but ultimately I think I need it in my life! I think that's what I'd chose if I won. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I like the look of the cressida skirt!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Great selection, I would choose the Madelaine by Victory patterns - just love those pockets!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Either the Natalie or Finlayson.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oooh two patterns that have long been on my to-sew list are on there...the afternoon blouse and the Lola dress. It would be tricky to choose!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hm, Cressida skirt for myself or Goldstream peacoat for my hubby? I might be generous and sew for him for a change!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I would absolutely love to have the Fifi boudoir set pattern! I have been lusting after it for a while!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'm on a skirt kick so I'd pick the Cressida skirt.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'd choose the Afternoon Blouse/Dress as I've been coveting it for a long while now!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Definitely the afternoon blouse/shift 😊

    ReplyDelete
  33. So many tempting patterns. I would love your afternoon blouse/shift dress but I've learnt this Me Made May that it's not dresses I lack but shirts and trousers and warm things (living in Brisbane). I think I would have to choose the Ninot Jacket to have a me-made thing for cold times to add to my wardrobe. www.sistersew.wordpress.com mail@emmascragg.com

    ReplyDelete
  34. I think I'd like to finally try the Lola dress pattern!

    ReplyDelete
  35. The Roxanne pattern- it's been on the list forever!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'd love the louisa dress for teens/women to sew for my girls!

    ReplyDelete
  37. It's so difficult to pick just one. My favourite is the Nicola due to it's gorgeous sleeves. I love the Felicity dress and your Bronte top too :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Lola by Victory Patterns - I've had my eye on it for a while!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I would love to win Roxanne by Victory Patterns. It's on my to-sew list for long time...
    Thank you for hosting this giveaway and the Pinterest group!

  40. I really like the Emery Dress pattern by Christine Haynes. I've heard good things about it and have seen some gorgeous versions!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I am loving the Afternoon Blouse, it has been on my wish list for a long time.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I fancy the Saltspring dress. Thanks for the giveaway.

  43. I would like the Bronte knit top because I need more me-made tops to go with my array of me-made skirts! I also want my sewing endeavor for the next season to involve using only patterns from independent companies. I have not tried many so I'd love to kick it off with this one!

  44. I'd love to try the Liola Patterns Natalie Top

  45. I love your own dress/blouse but have realised wearing a different piece of clothing every day for May that I have lots of dresses and summery things but nothing for winter. The Ninot Jacket caught my eye and looked perfect for the odd, rare cold day in Brisbane with possible variations in light fabric for sun. Mail@emmascragg.com

    ReplyDelete
  46. Great giveaway - thanks. I'm another who would like the Afternoon Blouse and Shift Dress pattern. The dress is my perfect shape but I'm loving the Hazel dress as well.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I think I would choose the Camas blouse or the Jutland pants

    ReplyDelete
  48. It would be a hard choice, so I'll pretend to be selfless and choose the Goldstream Peacoat to make for my husband :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Probably Victory Nicola or Chloe, it's hard to choose!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Roxanne PDF Sewing Pattern looks like a blouse pattern that would fit well in my wardrobe.

    ReplyDelete

  59. So many tempting patterns. I really like the afternoon blouse/shift and have been quite inspired by the ones you have worn this May, however I think I would be selfless and get either the Jedidiah trousers or Strathcona Henley to make something for my hubby as I have been thinking about getting both of these, but usually opt to be selfish instead!

  60. I'd choose either the nicola or the simone!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Thanks for the giveaway! I don't think my first comment posted because I was having Internet issues, but if this is a duplicate just ignore it. I'd love the Camas blouse, or if she gets your Hunter tank in stock, I might pick that instead!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Ooh I'd go for the Madeleine Skirt from Victory patterns :) I've wanted it for ages!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I love the Hazel dress, it's beautiful and would be great practice for sewing with silky fabrics.

  65. I have been sewing my own clothes since I was twelve and I can't believe it's only in the last year I discovered the online sewing community. I feel like I am so behind. So many patterns to catch up on. However, I have had my eye on the felicity dress for awhile and would love to get my hands on it. :)

  67. If I were lucky enough to win I'd love the Sparrow Top

    ReplyDelete
  68. Thanks for the opportunity.

    The luna top by loila

  69. Ooh! I like the Victory Anouk, but my lovely man deserves a Newcastle Cardigan. It's a puzzle. : ) Flannel is one of my top 3 favorite fabrics to sew and wear and yours is yummy!

Thank you so much for stopping by to leave me a comment, like most people, I really do appreciate them all!

Due to the large amount of spam I seem to be receiving for some strange reason, comments may take longer to be published than usual. Apologies!
