My Me-Made-May petered out at the end. I forgot that I had a work conference the final week and i'd be working insane hours. I did the best I could but I had a few failures.
flutter sleeve cardigan
anthro inspired blouse
new balance minimus
i finally found my summer wardrobe so i have endless me-mades that i never even whipped out for the challenge. i did do a big wardrobe purge, and i got rid of a ton of clothes that i haven't worn in years. the flutter sleeve cardigan was given a brief reprieve but i think it's destined for the donation box as well. it just isn't very flattering and the waist is too tight.
i like this top a lot but i rarely wear it because the fabric is super crappy cheap-o rayon jersey from joanns. i've gotten nicer stuff from them before but this particular fabric is very sheer and static-y. i should remake the top someday.
purple racerback dress
white refashioned cardi from day 21
new lucky emmie flats that are exactly the same as the red ones but black
i was at work from 7:30 in the morning until 10:00 at night. there was no way I was getting a picture of this one.
What did I learn from this challenge (other than that i still hate taking daily photos)?
Well, i have at least enough self-stitched clothing to wear for an entire month. I need more pants and cardigans. I should really make myself a jacket. The weather in May is completely unpredictable. I always need layers at work even when it's 90 degrees outside. I could use a couple more dresses but I should stop making skirts. it's a good idea when doing a wardrobe challenge to find all of your summer clothes prior to the week before the challenge is over. Don't be afraid to purge me-mades if they no longer work for you.
it's been a great month, but i am so ready to move onto something else.
