I need to sew something. This has been an emotional roller coaster of a week.  I took

Me-Made-May '15 Recap
My first Me-Made-May ended yesterday. How did I fare? Well, I didn't stay up to date here on the blog or on Instagram, but I never pledged to do that anyway. I pledged to wear at least one Me-Made garment per week, and I did: I wore my Sew Much Ado Seafarer...
