The End…of May

Me Made May 2013 has come to an end. I’m not sure how to get dressed anymore. I’m still reaching for my me mades, forgetting that I can wear my RTW clothes now. Strange as it was to start the month wearing self made clothes daily…now the opposite holds true. Not wearing them now feels strange. 
My experience this month was rewarding, fun, inspiring, challenging and uplifting. I met so many other fabulous women who share my same passion for sewing. In my daily life, I don’t think I know anyone who sews much at all, let alone their own clothing, making this challenge so meaningful to me. It was heartwarming to witness and be part and party to women of all ages encouraging each other!

I woke up everyday thinking about these lovely ladies, looking forward to seeing what they had made and would be wearing that day. I would steal time here and there during my day to log on to the Flickr group to swoon over all the lovely creations, leaving comments and then logging off wishing I had more time view everyone’s photo. There was never enough time.

I succeeded in my personal challenge with only a couple of repeats and still have self made garments that didn’t get worn…Another part of the challenge for myself personally was to blog EVERY DAY for the month as well. Yikes!! I’m pleased to say, I did it! The blog may have been a bit overwhelmed by the challenge content but for me personally it was a good way to establish some more consistency in blogging and gain some much needed confidence as well. 
I am so grateful for the experience, to Zoe, the mastermind behind the challenge and to the women who encouraged me and inspired me everyday! You ladies are the best!

The following outfits are my favorites of the month:

       It’s not hard to tell that I love color!
