Me Made May 2018 – week 2

Can you believe we are halfway through Me Made May?! I must confess that I am beginning to find it all a bit of a struggle. Not the ‘wearing clothes I’ve made’ part, it’s the ‘finding different things to wear so I don’t end up in the same 6 things each week’ coupled with the daily documentation that I’m struggling with.

As I’ve said before, I don’t much like having my photo taken so I knew documenting my me-mades was going to be the toughest part of the challenge. It’s beginning to feel a bit like a chore – not sure I’ve ever taken so many selfies! The intention for this part of Me Made May was to push me out of my comfort zone and it’s definitely done that. Whether it will have a lasting effect is a different matter…

Me Made May has highlighted that I do tend to reach for the same few tops each week, which is a shame because I have more than enough clothes to wear. I guess I just like things that are easy to wear. I do still have a few more tops that I could wear that I haven’t yet for Me Made May but I definitely to get a wriggle on and make some trousers.

This week I have been thinking a lot about what I want to be wearing and there are a few tops I have worn in the last fortnight that do not fit the ‘want’, just the ‘need’. Once the month is over I think I’m going to have to do a really big, ruthless wardrobe clear-out and start afresh with some makes that make me feel good when I wear them.

I’ve included details on each garment below along with links to all patterns worn this week.

    Well done for pushing through! I think the best thing about me-made-may is that it makes you think about what you like to wear vs what you like to sew. A few years ago I realised that I’m over vintage-y styles, as I loved the pattern covers more than the finished items and wearing them. Good luck with the rest of the challenge and the clear-out!
