I, Sandra of www.sewiststitch.blogspot.co.nz/, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '14. I endeavour to wear at least one item of me made for each day for the duration of May 2014.
I learnt about this challenge completely by chance last year, when my feed reader was full of people talking about wearing their own makes during the month of May. It is such a great challenge to celebrate your own handmade wardrobe. You can read more about the Me-Made-May Challenge over at So Zo.
This is my second year of ready to wear fasting, and my wardrobe has been growing steadily, although there is still at least 1-2 days per week where I won't wear something me made. I don't consciously make a decision to wear or not to wear me-made, its more about what goes together on the day. So this May I am going to make a conscious effort to wear one item of me-made per day and identify what items in my wardrobe need building. I suspect it is more casual wear for the weekends and tops but let the month of May tell the true story.
I can't promise to do a daily photo diary but any attempts will be posted to Instagram.
Happy Month of May :-)
