Well, it's that time of year... time for
I swear I've been thinking about this for ages. For those of you who don't know, you can read all about Me Made May here. Basically, though, you make a pledge to wear items made by you however often you like (so once a week, every day, or all handmade all the time - it's your challenge!) and then you basically follow along with the rest of the online sewing community while keeping your pledge. Photographic evidence isn't mandatory, but it is more fun ;-)
I'm to a point now where I do wear a lot of handmade clothes, but still not necessarily every day. What I would really like to do this Me Made May is pull out some old hand made clothes that don't see as much wear as I'd like. I'm specifically thinking of a few hand knit sweaters (which it's just about the season for) and some dresses/skirts. Since I started making pants, there's been a lot of pants wearing around these parts. I hate to admit it, but I've been wearing pretty much the same things on the same days all the time. Me Made May should be a good time to shake it up, since I can look back at last week's photos and make sure I'm not wearing the same outfits all over again.
This Me Made May I want to make sure I get some of those beloved pieces out of storage and into rotation, shake up the portion of my wardrobe that I actually wear, and hopefully even catch up on blogging some of my me made clothes. So, without further ado:
'I, Nicole of Reloved, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '14. I endeavour to wear at least one handmade item each day for the duration of May 2014, and at least one skirt/dress and one me made sweater per week'
I can't quite figure out how to phrase it in my pledge, so I'll just tack it on here. I will not be allowed any outfit repeats per two week period. So basically if I wore it last week, it's not happening this week!
So have you jumped on the Me Made May crazy train yet?
