I really want to join in with Me Made May this year, but my limited selection of me-mades make it a little tricky to go the whole hog and wear something made by myself every day.
1 pair of shorts
0 tops (my Sorbetto did not enjoy it’s accidental trip through the washing machine)
Assuming the weather doesn’t accommodate me wearing either the shorts or the snood, that leaves me with few options. I’m not sure how I could incorporate the apron into an outfit I could leave the house in! However, I do hate almost all of my shop bought clothes at the moment, and I am determined to participate in some way, so I’ve come up with this pledge:
‘I, Laurasaurus, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’14. In May 2014 I shall wear each weather appropriate piece of my me made wardrobe at least once, and work out the gaps in my wardrobe which need to be sewn up.‘
So my plan is to wear my me made items as much as possible, but also to keep track of the shop bought items to see which I wear, and which I don’t. I’m trying to clear my wardrobe at the moment, so I’d like to see what clothes I don’t wear, what gaps there are in my wardrobe, and therefore what I need to sew to fill those gaps or replace items which are past their best.
I’m going to try and avoid repeating any shop bought outfits during the month, as I want to make sure that everything I have bought has multiple uses. I’ll also try not to wear jeans and a t-shirt every day.
I’ll probably do a weekly round up of all of my outfits, including the shop bought ones and my feelings about them and how I could improve upon them.
