Well, I did it. I managed to fulfill my pledge to wear at least one me made item (not counting sweaters) each week in May. I really enjoyed it and it did what I had hoped: pushed me to wear my makes for more than just pictures! The only outfit I didn’t get a picture of was when I went strawberry picking. Here’s everything else:
Hollyburn Skirt 2 with Populuxe and Colorfield
I’ve just realized as I’m linking all of these posts that I never blogged about my second Rita Blouse! I’m planning a bit of a catch up post for the last month of making, so I’ll add the details in there.
I have to say that this is not too shabby seeing as that is only 1 dress, 2 tops, 2 skirts, and a couple of cardigans. Pretty good little mix and match into ye ole wardrobe. Looking back at these pictures, I think they really show my new, hopeful style. They don’t look awkward, out of place, or forced, which is what I worry about most often.
This really makes me want to sew some more! That’s a great outcome, so thanks Me Made May!

That’s a brilliant result from the month. I don’t sew, but I love to see the garments other people make and I think the ones you’ve shown here are just lovely. I believe that the more you wear the things you make, the more comfortable you become about wearing them and the less contrived you feel.
