Me Made May 2016

I’ve participated in Me Made May for a few years now and I’m pretty happy with how it’s been going. I finally packed away a bunch of handmade clothing that I never wear. I hope to get them out again someday and re-purpose some of the fabric. Until then, I’m pretty pleased with my current handmade wardrobe. I wanted to challenge myself to not repeat something during May and I got close, but not quite. I could have done it, but there are things that I just love wearing that I wanted to wear again. I don’t think that’s a bad thing at all!

As you can see the M4M Mama Mya was my favorite since I wore the white one three separate times and the gray one once. I would have worn the gray one more, but I didn’t make it until May was almost over. I’ll try to keep posting on Instagram of the days I wear something I’ve made and then do a monthly recap here. It won’t be every day like May, but I do pretty well most weeks.
