Our Favorite 3-Pattern Outfits for Me Made May

May is a special month for sewists. Me Made May is a month-long sewing event designed to encourage sewists to wear more of their me-mades. It was started by Zoe of So, Zo and has been going for over ten years.

There are so many ways to participate in Me Made May, and if you’re looking to beef up your handmade wardrobe to get in on the fun, here are our favorite three-pattern outfits:

There’s no better way to summer than in an easy-breezy Concord T-Shirt and Calder Shorts. Throw a denim Vernon Shirt over the ensemble and you’re ready to soak up the sun.

Get dolled up for a special night out in a Saybrook Tank and Upton Skirt. Top it off with a white or cream-colored Auburn Blazer for the complete look.

With a Cedar Dolman Top and an Ellis Skirt, you’re ready for brunch or an afternoon in the park. Keep a Vernon Shirt handy if the breeze turns chilly.

Sew your own suit with the Auburn Blazer and Calder Pants! A Springfield Top is the perfect tank to wear underneath.

Summer is just one long casual Friday. Make the Concord T-Shirt, Ames Jeans, and Fuller Cardigan your summer uniform.

The pandemic may be receding (we hope!), but our love of loungewear never fades. Sure, you could exercise in a Saybrook Tank, Belmont Leggings, and Stanton Hoodie, but nothing beats relaxing on the couch.

Get a head start on fall sewing with the Roseclair Dress (a gape-free wrap dress!), Belmont Leggings, and a Fuller Cardigan. And why not turn your Fuller into a coatigan?

    Presenting the patterns in groups of three to make an outfit is inspired. I frequently have difficulty envisioning a pattern in any way other than as a single garment. I just printed the groupings to put in my personal “Look” book that I keep in a three-ring binder. This presentation gave me the incentive to buy a particular pattern that I was previously not sure about.

    I love that you are having this sale, but my problem is that I have most of the patterns already from you, and would consider one or possibly two more, and that’s it…so the sale doesn’t work for me. Boo hoo.
