And yet another Me-Made-May is over. 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. During the first half of the month, I had no problems at all and didn’t repeat any me-made garments, but the only WIPs that I finished were five pairs of jeans that I darned.
The second half of the month was also very easy to wear at least one me-made garment each day. A few days in, I realized that I didn’t like the wording of the mini-challenge, because I found myself purposely wearing a minimum of me-mades so that I wouldn’t risk having to repeat them. So I won’t be repeating that part of the challenge again.
I did manage to get a LOT of my season-appropriate WIPs done, however I kept finding more and more projects in the to-do list, and various family members kept providing me with new garments that needed mending. So, while I wasn’t able to finish everything, I did manage to clear off one of my sewing spaces.
So, let me show you what I wore from May 17 – 31, and the projects that I finished:
