One of my favorite things about working here at Colette is walking into the studio each morning and seeing what me-made garments everyone is wearing. Often, if one of us sews up a great pattern, a few other team members will follow suit. I’m not going to lie, I copy Taylor a lot, because her style is impeccable, and Anna is usually sporting something that looks like it came from a great vintage store, but she actually sewed it up herself. It’s so inspiring!
That’s why we are all so excited for Me-Made-May this year. As a team, we pledge to all wear something handmade every day, and of course we will share it all with you on the Colette and Seamwork Instagram accounts.
At the end of May, we’ll share some of the things we learned about ourselves (and each other) and wrap up all of the fun projects we made here on the blog.
I am also selfishly looking forward to seeing your Colette and Seamwork makes this month. Every Friday, I’ll share a round of your makes to Instagram so we can all enjoy some inspiration. So don’t forget to tag your #colettemakes and #seamworkmakes!

I’m off to start a weekend marathon of sewing. What projects do you have lined up for Me-Made-May this year?
