Challenge: Me Made May 2019
Creator: So, Zo…
What it’s about: “Me-Made-May is a challenge designed to encourage people who make their own clothes to develop a better relationship with their handmade wardrobe. You set the specifics of your own challenge to make it suitable and useful for YOU” So, Zo…
The month of May seems to roll around very quickly. I start the year knowing I want to take part in this challenge, but I seem to blink and all of a sudden… well, here we are.
My practical handmade wardrobe is looking much healthier than it has in previous years, however I don’t feel like I have enough items to commit to more than one me-made per day.
So my pledge for May 2019 is:
- Wear at least one me-made item per day
- Document, and assess any gaps in my handmade wardrobe
- Have the courage to let go of any me-mades that no longer fit (my style or waistline)
I don’t think #1 will be too hard to stick to, although I do see my only pair of Ginger Jeans getting a lot of wear. I should probably make another pair, because lets face it, who has one pair of jeans in their wardrobe?
I’ll be documenting my wears over on my Instagram stories, and I’ll also have it saved to my highlights. I can already guess that a major gap in my wardrobe is going to be the lack of pants suitable for winter.
I am very sentimental about the things I make, so #3 is going to be very difficult for me. I wanted to include it though, as a way to clear up some space in my wardrobe for items that I will actually wear. Anything that does leave my wardrobe won’t be thrown out though! I’ll be asking my friends and family if they would like to take the item off my hands.
