Me Made May 2023 Review

Well, I made it all the way through the month- filming daily and restyling my makes. And I’m feeling really good about my closet and making everything work with my new style goals.

Day 14

I kept my pledge pretty simple-for me anyway-this year. I wanted to restyle and rework pieces I’m not wearing regularly. While MMM is NOT a photo challenge, I did film and photograph my daily looks throughout the month. That part I am glad to be done with! I don’t know that I’ll repeat that next year- it was SO much work. But I do love seeing the results!

Day 25

“I Rebecca at Sew Pomona pledge to wear my handmade wardrobe every day, working on redefining my style throughout May 2023”

This is my 10th year taking part in the challenge and I love how much I learn every year. My wardrobe is now almost entirely handmade, but I find the styling aspect incredibly helpful for my handmade wardrobe.

Here’s the link below to Zo’s blog and podcast if you’d like more information. I love listening to her podcast- so much great info and inspiration. I’ve been following her blog since I started sewing way back when.

Day 17

Week 1

Started out the month strong in some favorite pieces. I took advantage of the slightly cooler weather at the beginning of the month to wear some fall pieces before it gets crazy hot here! Florida in summer is not for the feint of heart!

Week 2

We spent a lovely long weekend visiting our parents. Nice change of scenery.

Week 3

This was my favorite week- my 17th Wedding Anniversary (We’re already planning a cruise for our 20th!) and Mother’s Day! I love that I always get pictures of these two days every year!

Week 4

This week felt classic and elegant, I was on a roll in lovely makes.

Week 5

My Sew-Jo was back at the end of the month and I got really inspired to get stitching! This week I shared a bunch of new makes that I’ll be blogging about soon!

Week 5 MMM Video releasing later today….stay tuned!

Releasing Later Today!

So that’s it! Everything a wore this month. Head over to YouTube to watch the weekly videos for more thoughts on what I was wearing. I feel like this month was a win! I documented everything and realized what I’m missing in my Spring and Summer Wardrobe (tees and lightweight pants/shorts) and what I have plenty of (dressy makes I never wear)!

Hope you all had a fabulous Me Made May! Back soon with new makes and my Summer Sewing Goals. Happy Sewing!
