Doing Me Made May every year really gives me a fresh perspective on my handmade wardrobe.
First, I realize how many more cold weather things I’ve sewn than warm weather things. Every May, I find myself looking forward to the cooler, rainier days because I’ll actually be able to find something I’ve made to layer up, rather than wearing the same few camisoles and Mabel skirts that are appropriate for the heat.
This year, it’s really inspired me to do more spring/summer sewing. I’ve been thinking about making lots of full midi skirts, vintage sundresses, Nani Iro double gauze fabric, chambray, and crisp whites.
This is a moodboard I put together with a few pieces of sewing inspiration I’ve been saving lately.
All of this led me to wonder: What me-made items to you wish you had in your wardrobe this May?
What kinds of patterns would you love to buy right now? What fabrics are you most drawn to? What do you want to wear?
