Me-Made-May '14: The Final Week

I did it!  I managed to participate and survive Me-made-May '14. Quite the learning experience where I learned that I need to make more undergarments. The ratio of me-made to ready-to-wear leans more heavily on the ready-to-wear side but I'm sure that will change as time goes on especially since I'm on a RTW Fast this year and I've come to appreciate my sewing skills more than I did prior to this journey.  Well, here is how the final me-made week played out.
