Me-Made-May Review by Jaime

We just finished another year of participating in Me-May-Made! Me-May-Made was created by sewing blogger Zoe of "So, Zo...What do you know?" It is a fantastic and fun challenge to participate in, wearing as many "me-made" clothes as possible for the month of May. Everyone can make their own challenge to fit their comfort level and goals. This was my second year participating and this year I challenged myself to wear a different handmade (me-made) item everyday and to not wear any items from last year's challenge. In other words, new items I have made since last May. I love wearing my handmade items everyday already so this was a good way to challenge myself. I often find myself wearing a select few items I've made in heavy rotation so wearing something different everyday for a month really forced me to dig deep in my closet. Here is a re-cap of my month of handmade outfits!

Hi, What is the apricot coloured t-shirt - I think it might be knitted. I love the pattern. Love all your me-mades.

Thanks, Susan! It is knit. It's the Silken Straw Summer Tee from Purl Bee knit in Shibui Linen.

so many of these are lovely and vaguely remembered, can you and Amber post a full list of your lovelies, if not too much trouble?
