I was hoping to have a maxi dress completed by today to wear it, but time got away from me.
The most important thing I learned during Me Made May '14, is that actually wearing my makes tells me about the fit more than anything. Spending the day in an item, moving around, and living in it, points out all the things I would change. More length, fix the shoulders, add width, make a smaller bust, etc. I enjoyed learning all these things. I actually got rid of 3 me mades this week because of the poor fit; however I am still happy with those patterns, I just know to make things different next time.
Needs: Tanks, s/s shirts, shorts, skirts, swim suit, zip-up fleece jacket.
How successful was your may? Did you learn anything about your makes?
