Me-Made-May 2015: May 1-16

The first half of May is over, meaning I am halfway through my Me-Made-May 2015 challenge. My pledge this year had two parts: to wear at least one garment per day that I had made or modified in some way, shape or form, and to finish all season-appropriate clothing works in progress. As the days went by, I started a sort of personal mini-challenge, to see how many days I could go without repeating a me-made garment.

So what’s the tally as of today, May 16? I have indeed worn one me-made garment per day, without repeating any of them (except for a pair of pants that I’d darned, though those weren’t the main me-mades of those days). Strangely enough, the weather suddenly turned hot a few days in to the month, so I wasn’t able to wear a lot of my colder mid-seasonal clothing, but that hasn’t been a problem for me.

As for my clothing WIPs, I’ve only machine darned 5 pairs of jeans, which I did all on one morning, though I know exactly what to do with a bunch of other WIPs, so hopefully I’ll be able to get those done quickly. An interesting thing is that my to-do pile has grown instead of gotten smaller. Yikes! And a lot of my WIPs are for my kids, so unfortunately I won’t be able to add them to my collection of me-mades for the rest of Me-Made-May.

I also realized that I don’t like posting photos of myself every day on social media. I did it just two or three times on Facebook, but that was about it. So that’s perhaps something that I can work on for the rest of this month’s challenge.

Before I show you the documentation, I have to thank my 8-year-old daughter, who took all of these pictures, most of them with our DSLR, except for May 10 and 12, which my husband took, and the one of the five pairs of jeans, which I took. Isn’t she awesome? So anyway, without further ado, here’s what I wore from May 1 – 16, 2015:

    • That is so silly that you would say that, Jo, because I just looked and I love your wardrobe and style! I love seeing what other people are making and wearing for MMM! But I totally agree, that this experience makes it pretty clear what holes there may be in your me-made wardrobe and what you should work on, and what you have enough of.
