So, week 2 of Me Made March went pretty well. I haven’t had to start repeating items yet, although I suspect I won’t make it through another week without something reappearing.
This challenge has had the following effect on me so far:
- It has resurrected my college days style of thermal/long-sleeve shirts under short-sleeved shirts/jumpers. It’s a bit 90’s, but at least it’s warm.
- I am probably dressing a bit ‘better’ than I normally do. I can get into a bit of a ‘trousers, shirt and cardigan/jumper’ rut in winter. The fact I have only 2 pairs of me-made trousers means I’m saving them for when I really need them. And that means I’m dressing up a bit more than usual.
- Photos of my me-made stuff are getting more interesting – which can only be a good thing. All credit due to the photographer.
So, here is the line up for this past week:
