Wrapping up week 4 of Me Made May...we're on the downhill slide now.
I wore something me-made again every day last week...and it actually wasn't that hard (though I do wonder if I could wear something me-made everyday for an entire month)? It helped that the weather in Sydney is getting cooler so I was able to pull out one of my Linden Sweatshirts plus my Seamwork Oslo Cardigan (that I didn't really like when I made it but now I'm pretty keen on it).
After last weekends sewing I also had a new "Our Fave Top" and two new scarves to add into the mix.
Impressively (at least to me) I wore something me-made each day last week, and apart from my shibori scarf (that I want to wear EVERYDAY) nothing was repeated.
Once again I'm killing my lame challenge of two me-mades each week so next year I'll up the ante. Gloating aside, I also said that I was going to finish my toile of the Moneta Dress but confession: it's not going to happen as I have so many other things that I want to make first.
The weather in Sydney continues to be totally schizophrenic, with outfits going from bare legs and Mabel Skirts to rugged up in Sydney Jackets. Some items are easy to reach for as I love them (black Mabel Skirt, khaki Sydney Jacket, black and white "Our Fave Top" and obviously the Shibori scarf) and others like the grey Sydney Jacket, red "Our Fave Top" and the butterfly ponti skirt are forced as I don't love them as they are flawed.

Week 2 of Me Made May is all over Red Rover.
I wore a total of eight me-mades, though some - like my Shibori scarf - were worn more than once.
The weather is still totally schizophrenic in Sydney...bare legged in a Mabel Skirt one day and rugged up in a Sydney Jacket less than 24 hours later. This week featured two "Our Fave Top" one of which was fresh off the sewing machine and the other sporting two holes in it from trying to finish the neckline properly. Luckily I have more of the nice reddish fabric so I can remake the ruined "Our Fave Top".
I've quite enjoyed wearing my me-mades this week but it would be easier if the weather would pick a season.
Initially I was super keen to participate in Me Made May...and then the 1st May rolled around and it felt more like Me Made Meh.
Sydney weather is bizarrely warm for this time of year making it hard to get dressed each day as I'm never sure how hot I'm going to be. I've also put on a bit of weight so my me-mades from last year don't all fit and I feel like I don't have many options for this weird in between weather.
My challenge this year is to wear two me-mades per week, and despite feeling meh I accomplished that. I ended up wearing a "Our Fave Top", a Megan Longline Cardigan, my Shibori scarf and two me-made necklaces. I'm not sure if the necklaces really count, but I made them so I'm going to count them.
