Me-Made-May’17 is finished! I am happy because I reached my goals: wearing a different me-made garment every day. More, I also pledged to wear at least 10 new me-made’s—sewed between June 2016 and May 2017. I succeeded.
I already wrote about the first half of my MMMay 17. Below, I’ll tell you about the second half and some further general observations.

Some observations about the second half of MMMay
There are only little changes in my observations in comparison to the first half of MMMay.
- Still a LOT of prints! I definitely have to sew some solids.
- A variety of colours.
- No repeats, at all.
- An eclectic style.
- We had some ‘tropical’ weather so I was happy to wear my Summer clothes.
- Two old rtw-tops. The others I made myself.
- Taking a picture of yourself every day is quite confronting.
- I enjoy the challenge to search my wardrobe every day to look for a new me-made!
I enjoyed MMMay’17. I am thrilled that I am able to wear unique me-made clothes 31 days in a row. On top of that, I’m really pleased that half of them are recent makes. Though I must confess that I didn’t wear some of the old makes since last May, I was happy with the excuse to wear them again.
This challenge also makes me reflect on my wardrobe. There are some gaps:
* trousers – I only wore some comfy pants last month
* garments in solid colours
* an in-between seasons coat or jacket
It was also fun and inspiring to see all the beautiful makes from other sewists on Instagram and on the blogs. Again I met some new amazing and creative people.
I am already looking forward to MMMay 2018!
