I am very late at writing this post. As in we are already in May and I am just writing it, but better late than never!
This is my first year participating in Me Made May challenge. I first learnt about it a couple years ago and I never thought I would be able to have enough me made items to wear even a couple days a week. Yet, here we are and I already mostly wear me made clothes.
For those who are not aware of what this challenge is head on over to So,Zo… blog to read about it. The idea is to challenge home sewists and makers to wear handmade clothes more often. The are no strict rules, it’s not a competition and everyone is welcome to create their own version of the challenge suitable to themselves and their lives, and to participate.
Here is my pledge:
I, Anya of Anna-Zoe (www.anna-zoe.net) and @anna.zoe.sewing on Instagram, sign up as a participant of Me Made May ’16. I will wear at least one item of me made clothing each day for the duration of May 2016. I will also commit to making at least one new item each week to add to my wardrobe to replace RTW items and fill in holes. You can follow my journey on instagram (daily updates) and my blog (weekly updates).
Well, I already wear at least one item of handmade clothing each day. Even if it is just my undergarments, but it counts I hope. My challenge here is to really try to find out where my holes in my closet are, what I do wear most vs. what I make most.
I plan to figure out a way to show off my daily outfits on the instagram and do a weekly round-up on the blog. I think the daily updates will be most challenging for me as I am not used to snapping daily pictures, but I am sure I can do it for a month.
I also plan to keep up with my sewing and continue to make at least one item a week to add to my closet. I have no particular plans but there are a few things on my to-make list. I’ll share those on my instagram as well until I have time to snap outfit photos.
Here we go! I am very excited for my first Me Made May!
