Last year, I participated in my first Me-Made-May. It was a really great exercise in wearing the clothes I've knit and sewn for myself. I surprised myself. I had to get a little bit creative, but I was able to make it through the entire month! This year, Zoe and Jennifer Lauren are hosting another month of Me-Made fun, and I'm eager to join!
Each participant is able to design the specific details of her/his own challenge, so there are endless possibilities and ways to participate. This year, I want to concentrate on wardrobe building with a pinch of spring cleaning. I pledge the following:
I, Michelle, of tresbienensemble.com pledge to wear at least one Me-Made garment each day during the Month of May. Additionally, I will start the month with all of my clothing on one side of my closet and move items to the opposite side as I wear them. By the end of the month, I hope to have a better understanding of which wardrobe pieces I need to make more of and which items can, and should, be donated to clear space in my closet. Further, I will photo document my outfits daily to learn more about the types of garments that suit me.
I'm hoping to let go of a lot of the things I no longer wear at the end of the month. Also, I want to look at the things I am wearing and make more of them! I'm allowing RTW clothes in my monthly challenge to see which types of clothing I'm using as a crutch. And, I hope, as a side effect, I'll force myself to wear a clothes with a little more variety than I do typically. If you want to participate, hop on over to SO, Zo and make a pledge, you won't regret it!
