Me Made May Recap

My first attempt at Me Made May was a bit of a success!  I did miss a few days when I was sick in bed, and a few more days when I was away at Girl Scout Camp but managed to wear something handmade most days.  The biggest challenge was getting a picture of myself and I honestly felt pretty uncomfortable taking so many pictures that focused on me but overall I think this was a useful exercise.  I pulled some oldies but goodies out of the back of my closet and wore items that I wouldn’t normally wear that took me out of my clothing rut and reminded me why I sew- I do have some great pieces in my wardrobe that I should be proud of!  My goal was to wear something handmade each day and to sew up one new item each weekend.  The new items I made in May are (patterns in captions):


The rest of the month looked like this:


What I’ve learned:

  • I need more basics tops and separates
  • I need to figure out a better way to take photos- begging  my kids to take my pictures on the front lawn isn’t the best plan
  • This was really fun and boosted my confidence- it was rewarding to tell people and share what I was wearing each day!
