Wednesday Weekly Helen's Closet

Welcome to June, makers!  It is crazy how quickly me-made-may flew by.  I had visions of wearing everything I made in the past year, but of course that didn’t happen.  Not just because wearing a wool coat in this heat is insane, but I really found I was reaching for my favourites and thinking about what makes them work for me.  I know you all were doing the same, and I look forward to reading your me-made-may epiphanies!
