Week 2 recap of Me Made May is finally here. It has been a strange few weeks for my business which I will be sharing more about tomorrow on the blog, but I really wanted to recap every week since I am really learning so much about my clothes choices this month.
If you didn’t get a chance to read my recap from the first week of this years Me Made May you can read it here.
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.
You can find my thoughts on the challenge in these posts from 2015 and 2016
Me Made May is one of my favourite things to participate in every year. If you haven’t ever done it I highly recommend you participate even if you aren’t going to post the pictures every day. The month long challenge gives you a really great perspective into the clothes that you go for in your closet and the ones that you avoid wearing. If you have a closet full of handmade clothes and half of them you never wear for whatever reason, you are really going to identify that when you are forcing yourself to wear one handmade item every day. Not only that but you definitely identify the clothes that you absolutely love whether because of the fabric or the pattern. This really helps you plan further clothes and fabric choices.
Brace yourself people you are about to relive all the amazing selfies you saw of me during the last month. I am pretty selfied (not a word but I am totally going with it) out!
Hard to believe that I made it through the entire month wearing at least 1 handmade piece of clothing every day. I never expected to remember to actually do it every day, but I am so glad I did because I got some real insight into my style and current wardrobe.
