Me-Made May is almost here guys. The annual sew-a-poluza where we all challenge ourselves to wear handmade (you can read more on Zoe’s blog So, Zo)
I know I already wear a lot of me-made clothes. And I’m constantly planning and assessing my makes – slowly trying to make a handmade wardrobe that fills me with happiness.
And I’m not a big lover of the selfie.
So why join in?
Here’s the thing, I love the sense of community it fosters among us sewing folk. Sure we’re a friendly bunch anyway, but it’s nice to share our makes, get encouragement and be supportive of each other.
I also really like the space that Me-Made May gives me to think about what I wear and how I wear it.
Look, any excuse to get scheming is top in my book.
You can read more about my adventure in Me-Made May from last year.
I’ve been reading through some people’s pledges on Zoe’s blog. Guys, some people are totally going for it – never repeating a handmade outfit, or wearing pretty darn close to 100% handmade.
Go big, or go home, right?
I’d love to be totally ambitious, but to be honest I’m trying to go for a quality-not-quantity vibe with my makes so my pledge might seem a tad lame in comparison
But, heck it’s my pledge, so there you go
In the month of May I aim that 75% of what I wear over the whole month will be made or restyled by me (not including shoes, bags or underthings – cause I’m not that awesome yet).
I also aim to take on the mother of all challenges – a handmade swimsuit.
Are you joining in to Me-Made May this year? If so, please do consider leaving your blog/Instagram details so I can follow along.
Let’s do this!
