Me Made May 2016


This year I've decided to take the plunge and participate in Me Made May. It's a month long challenge designed to encourage and inspire people to actually wear things they've made.

You can choose yourself exactly what you want to pledge to do. Most people seem to be pledging to wear at least one thing they've made every day. I think if I tried that I would be either a) be doing A LOT of laundry in May or b) be naked a lot of the time so instead this is my pledge:

I, Julie of and @sumoftheirstories on instagram, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '16. I endeavour to wear all of the clothes and accessories I have ever made or refashioned and still have (unless they are totally weather inappropriate) during May 2016

I'm hoping at the end of May I will be inspired to make more of my own clothes, especially every day practical garments. I used to make a lot more from scratch than I do now, it would be good to get back into that again.

There are a few summer maxi dresses I've made which I normally just wear on holiday so they will be weather dependant, if we get a warm spell then I will get them out quick. It will be interesting to see what is stashed at the back of the wardrobe, made and then forgotten.

If you fancy joining in then Zoe from So, Zo...what do you know? has all the details here
