A run down of the first 5 days of my first ever Me Made May! Really enjoying the challenge so far, forcing me to put lots more thought into outfits and sometimes plan the night before and I am very conscious that whatever I wear will end up photographed on the internet! Anyway, here are the outfits, hope you like. Some items I have not blogged yet as they are recent makes but I will get round to my pattern reviews soon enough :)
