Me Made Made 2017 and What I learned

Me Made May is such a great thing. If you haven't tried it, I recommend you do. It helps you see what you like wearing and what you need in your wardrobe. I learn something new about myself and my sewing projects, I make new friends, and get inspired by the online sewing community. If you want to read about what I learned, scroll to the bottom.

I found I need a couple more basic tees, a long navy cardigan, a swimsuit and new sandals. All of these are items I can finish this month and enjoy all summer. Of course I have a longer list than that, but those are not items I regularly thought about needing when I got dressed in the morning.
I need to alter my embroidered peplum and take in the sides of my mint tee.
I need to make a white and black striped tee since the one I have is thrifted and not a tall size.
I also found that I would love to have many more handmade items in my closet. I wanted to wear more than one handmade item every day. My goal is to be able to wear two handmade items every day next May.
