I, Katja Kuitunen of withmyhandsdream.com and @katja.kuitunen, sign up as a participant in Me-Made-May '18. I endeavour to wear a me-made top and a bottom or a dress everyday for the month of May. I will also try to create two whole outfits (top+bottom) and make one set of underwear for myself.
I made a vintage style floral dress out of mustard viscose I got from Artenio. The pattern is the Amelia Tea Dress by Simple Sew patterns but I modified the pattern by replacing the flutter sleeves with long ones.

I made the Vado Designs custom-fit Classic Fit Men's Shirt from Bootrapfashion.com for my father. I finally found out a good method for sleeve plackets.
For quite some time I have been thinking of making perfectly fitted shirts for my husband. Now that I have had plenty of experience in making shirts and blouses for myself it wasn’t a big leap to try a men’s pattern. I chose to use Vado designs Made-To-Measure Slim Fit Men’s Shirt pattern from Bootstrapfashion.com. The great thing with this pattern is that you can not only input the normal measurements for the chest, waist and neck circumference among others but also the shoulder slope and the posture. This was the reason for me to choose this pattern since in many of the men’s shirt patterns available the shoulder slope…
