Me Made May 2017: Week 4


That’s a wrap! Me Made May and daily photos are officially over. I made it the entire month wearing only clothes that I’ve made. Thanks for following along with me on this adventure.

There were a few MVPs (most valuable patterns) this Me Made May. I wore Ginger jeans on at least 14 days this month (other days I changed into them after work), Sewaholic Granvilles on 6 days, and my Jenna Cardi on 4. My latest Jalie Cora running tights and Sewaholic Dunbar sports bra also deserve some recognition. They made it to every pilates and barre class of the month, paired with a rotating selection of Plantain tees.

I also noticed that I wore a LOT more indie patterns this month than patterns from the Big 4. When I’m looking for practical day-to-day clothes, I gravitate toward indie patterns. The Big 4 makes that I did wear were all dresses, and not super casual ones, either.

Anyways, here’s a recap of what I wore each day over the last week, including links in case you’d like to learn more about any individual pieces.

Day 22: Doctor’s appointments and working from home in pink Sewaholic Granville shirt and trusty non-stretch Ginger jeans
