Celebrating our handmade wardrobes!
Me Made May is a month-long handmade wardrobe challenge that was started by Zoe of the blog So, Zo… What Do You Know? and has been a tradition for sewists around the world for over a decade. In Zoe’s own words:
me made may
There are many ways to celebrate Me Made May! Whether you opt to wear something handmade each day (or even once a week), resume a project-in-progress, mend a well-loved handmade garment, or start a new sewing project to round out your wardrobe, we have the materials you’ll need to make it happen.
At Stonemountain & Daughter we’re here to support our community of sewists, celebrate your sewing successes, and share the joy that comes from sewing, wearing, and sharing—during May and every month of the year. Through our Stonemountain Spotlight features throughout the year, we share our talented team’s sewing projects and hope to inspire you on your sewing journey.
This May, rather than have our team create something new, we have invited them to share a favorite project from any point in their sewing journey in Stonemountain & Daughter’s very own Me Made May Museum. This exhibit includes garments, home dec, art pieces, and more—each holding special significance to the maker and their sewing journey.
Our official Me Made May Museum ribbon cutting is this Tuesday, May 7th at 10:30am at Stonemountain & Daughter, but you can visit the Me Made May Museum in person during shopping hours throughout the month of May—be sure to pick up a souvenir sticker and stop by the “museum store”! If you’re not in the area or can’t make it to the shop, you can see and read about all the items in the museum online on our blog. Everyone is welcome to add their own project to the virtual collection on Instagram by tagging #MeMadeMayMuseum. We hope you enjoy the exhibit!

behind the scene
One of the best things about creating a museum at the shop is that we can take you behind the scenes and share a bit more about what went into making the pieces! These three pieces from the collection were made with patterns, fabric, and notions that we carry, so if you’re feeling inspired, here’s what you need to know to create your own version! 
Kristen shares her Chalk & Notch Marcel Dress, featuring sashiko stitching on cotton shirting. Kristen says, “I love the look of hand stitches and love the act of hand sewing. I am always on the lookout for ways to add sashiko or boro stitches to my clothing. My vision came through in the end just as I had imagined, an incredibly satisfying feeling!”
If Kristen’s dress has inspired you to add a bit of sashiko to your wardrobe, we’ve got everything you’ll need to get started—including threadneedles, and a handy pocket guide. If you’d like to stitch up an indigo blue Marcel Dress or Tank Top, we’ve got a few designer deadstock cotton chambrays available!
Suzan shares her Sew Liberated Matcha Top made up in sandwashed silk. Suzan says, “I love the little sleeve hack we did on this Matcha Top with a slight ruffle to give it more of a flowy look. I wanted to show that gorgeous silk is an everyday fabric that can look great with jeans or dressed up. It’s one of my favorite garments and I can wear it anywhere and anytime and feel so good in it.” We’re all out of the silk print Suzan used to make her Matcha Top, but we’ve got lots of beautiful silks in stock that would be perfect for this project. Our pick for spring? Our designer deadstock silks from Amour Vert, of course!
Jen shares her Closet Core Jenny Overalls in Nevada Linen. Jen says, “I love these overalls. They are probably one of my most worn me-made items, and whenever I wear them people ask me about them. They work well for summer, spring and fall, and the weight of the Nevada linen is so perfect for them. They were the first (and only) pair of bottoms I made for myself, which definitely boosted my confidence, and adding in the overall  hardware made the project feel like a true intermediate sew!” Ready to make your own pair of Jenny Overalls? With over 40 colors of Nevada Linen in stock and even more on the way, you’re sure to find the perfect addition to your summer palette!
