me made may 2017 | week 1

Me Made May is back again! Are you participating this year? I participated on a whim last year and had so much fun, that I actually looked forward to this month all year! Even though sewists often post their "me-mades" on Instagram, with hashtags and all, it's fun to have a whole month dedicated to handmade wardrobes. I am quite a minimalist, so many of my "me-mades" this year are the same as last. But that's also part of a sustainable wardrobe! Making clothes that last!  

Here's what I've worn so far this May:
