I made it through the entire month without repeating an entire outfit. Towards the end, this was a very conscious effort, but it made for some creative outfits that I wouldn't have come up with otherwise.
My most worn item this month was my blue striped plantain by Doe and Deer, worn four times. Three other items were worn three times: my floral teal Plantain by Doe and Deer, my black and white cowl neck shirt, and my pink skirt. Interestingly, these most-worn items include most of the me-made shirts in my wardrobe. Speaking of patterns...
This month I wore me-made shirts more often than skirts or dresses. I never would have predicted that, as I have far more dresses and skirts in my me-made arsenal.
I wore about 55% woven me-mades this make, and 45% knits. Seeing how frequently I wear them, I should probably make more knit garments, as they currently make up a pretty small amount of my makes.
Another revelation was how many patterns I wear. 84% of the me-made items I wore this month were patterned. Since I still wear a considerable amount of RTW clothes, this isn't an issue. If I wanted to wear a completely me-made wardrobe, though, I'd need to switch this balance.
I'll leave you with my favorite outfit of the month, as chosen by me and popular vote on Instagram.
