Trying something a little different this year with Me Made May, by sharing weekly recaps for you. I think this is going to be a better way to share my weekly insights and pattern thoughts without trying to remember it all month long. Week 1 has been pretty much a breeze, thanks to a wardrobe of handmade, but I know as the month progresses it is going to get more difficult. But I love the challenge and the knowledge that comes from this month of pushing myself.
Pretty much from September until May I am dressed in layers whether it is a heavy sweater and vest or a tank top and cardigan I always have multiple layers on. Add a cozy scarf and my new favourite hat and you pretty much have my ‘uniform’ for the fall and winter.
While most of my closet is now handmade I still have quite a few pieces that have been around for YEARS. Most can be found in the form of a cardigan, which could be argued is the best option for a layer, they can pretty much go over anything. Because I tend to get warm in all my layers I usually wear a tank top under my cardigans, no one likes to have bunchy shirts in the sleeves of your cardigan either.
