All Days
Reflection:

This was the best Me-Made-May! I didn’t feel panicked on what to wear every morning. Most days are me-made anymore so it didn’t seem like a strenuous activity.  Part of my “cool” attitude is the amount of clothes I’ve made over the past year. They’re all clothes I like to wear. I don’t feel “eh, whatevs, that’ll do” about them.

When I was first learning how to sew, I felt the need to produce quantity not quality. I think mostly I was trying to understand the whole clothes making process and understanding these crazy foreign words in the instructions of patterns. All in all ,I feel that I’m getting better at picking patterns that fit my style and personality. I’m learning how to make clothes fit properly and that I feel good in.

I’m happily making my way to my wardrobe being entirely me-made. I think this MMM17 really made that apparent  Woo-hoo! *happy dance* Did you participate in Me-Made-May? Do you plan on it in the future? What’s your favorite part of the process?

  1. Woohoo! Congrats on a successful MMMay! I’ve thought about just photographing the clothes – it seems a lot easier and you don’t have to worry about daily makeup. 😉 But then I’m a ham and like plastering my face all over the internet. :-p

    Cheers!

    1. It wouldn’t be the same if I couldn’t see your happy crazy pics! They make me happy and a bit envious that you can look adorable when being goofy. I look a bit scary or “what’s wrong with her face?”

      1. Haha, thank you! It’s from years and years of practice. I can’t keep my face normal for more than an hour at a time. :-p
