Me Made May 2019

May 31, 2019

Do you ever participate in the sewing community’s Me Made May?  It’s a month of encouraging sewists to wear and show off their handmade wardrobe, while learning to develop a better relationship with their “me made” items.

Though I wear handmade every single day, I like to participate and just document what I’ve worn and to play along with the rest of the sewing community.  I will admit that it is EXHAUSTING to photograph my outfits every day.  I know you’re probably laughing at me about that statement (just like my husband) but I don’t selfie every day.  And doing so for thirty one days is a lot!  But it’s kind of a fun challenge and I’m always happy to join in on it! 

And since I have all of the photos already, I thought I’d break them all down with the patterns, and sometimes fabrics, that I used, so you can see how truly easy it is to have a handmade wardrobe like mine.

WHEW. That was an exhausting thing to have to type out and link! But it just goes to show how few patterns a person can own and turn into a wardrobe for 30 days that has no repeats.

Well, no repeated tops. I obviously own less bottoms than tops and those suckers get repeated over and over and over again. 😉
