Me Made May 2020


I decided to participate in Me Made May  again for  2020. I felt like it gave me something to do a purpose if you will to wear one garment made by me everyday for the month of May. I really love the clothes I make sometimes for a long time, and sometimes temporarily and I find new homes for them. So here are the ones for Autumn this year.

My choices for the first 15 days;
