May was such a busy month for me sewing wise. With #MeMadeMay2017, I was on a mission to sew lots of new things as to not make my daily mirror selfies super boring. In the end, I think they were still boring, because I wore a lot of things more than once (or more than twice!). But I did end up filling my closet up with 23 (!!) more garments this month – so many fun things!

Month In Review:
Favorite – My floral Ayda Top + Kelly Anorak
I feel like picking a favorite this month is like picking a favorite child. I love everything I made this month. If I had to pick, I think I would pick the Ayda Top and the Kelly Anorak. love that Ayda top so much – it is so fun to wear! I feel like I would be lying if I didn’t say the Kelly Anorak was my favorite too this month. It just feels like such a big girl jacket!
Most Worn – Molly Dress
This was such a good #MeMadeMay17 staple for me. It was easy to throw on for work and easy to wear. I see many more of these in my future (see below!)
Most Repeatable – Molly Dress + Panama Tee Dress + Union Street Tee
Gosh I love all of these so much. I’ve already made three Molly Dresses so I feel like that obviously wins most repeatable and the other two are just great wardrobe staples. The Union Street Tee is winning my favorite t-shirt currently so it’s going to be repeated for sure!
What were your favorite makes of the month? Anything you know you’re going to repeat again?
