I participated in my first Me Made May this year and documented my outfits on Instagram. I made a fatal mistake by wearing all of my makes in the first 15 days of May leaving nothing but repeats. This led to an eventual lack of posting at all. But I am pleasantly surprised that I even have 15 me-mades! The hardest thing was photographing my outfits - selfies can get tiresome and my husband isn't the greatest photographer. Here is a breakdown of what I wore (in no particular order).
A couple of revelations:
- All of my dress/shirts are sleeveless. Not one has sleeves!
- I need to make more shorts - they are fun and easy.
- I need to attempt pants.
- I need to sew more with knits.
- I have a lot of unblogged makes!
