final thoughts on Me-Made-May

It’s June, and Me-Made-May 2015 is over. I learned some things during this project. {week 1} 1) Wearing handmade garments close-to-daily was not difficult. Yes, I had some repeats, but fewer than I expected. My me-made wardrobe is more far-reaching than I realized, and that realization is empowering! {week 2} 2) I do not like […]
