Me-Made-May ’14 Wrap Up

I didn’t announce it, but I participated in the yearly extravaganza known as Me-Made-May.  What fun to scroll through the (hundreds) of photos posted in the Flickr group on a weekly basis.  There’s over 5000 photos this year!  Amazing!

MMM14This year a wonderful group of sewists from Japan and Toyko joined us and it was so inspirational to see all the garments they’ve sewn and wear daily from the various Japanese pattern books available.  I’ve never tackled any Japanese pattern book…. yet.

I always appreciate the me-made celebrations, although taking a daily photo of what I’m wearing can become tedious very quickly.  I didn’t take any particular care to look pretty for the camera this year, and I was surprised at how casual my cool-weather wardrobe is.  It’s also a great way to decide what looks good on me and what I should leave to other people.  So here’s my observations:

  • I like dresses better than separates.
  • I should make more jackets/cardigans because then I can wear layers (imagine that), which means I can wear my dresses without freezing when it’s cold.

Anyways, if you were not able to join, I urge you to do so for Zoe’s next hosting of this fun online event!  Were you able to participate?  What’s the one thing you’re taking away from the experience this year?
