Just a few months late! This year I participated in Me Made May which is now rather big in the sewing community. Its a challenge about wearing items that you have made yourself. A way of improving your relationship with stuff you’ve made and to actually wear it! Its up to you how far you want to go with your challenge. I choose to try and wear something I had made every day for the month of May. The challenge is hosted by Zoe from her fabulous blog sozowhatdoyouknow
Firstly it made me get on with my ironing! I had to think about getting dressed a bit more than usual, jeans were worn less! I feel that I succeeded in my challenge in that I did wear something handmade every day. I actually discovered that I have amassed quite a few me made garments. There was one day when I really wanted to wear a ready to wear a denim dress that I had bought so i did and put on some handmade earrings instead to make me feel like i wasn’t going to fail my challenge. Ive added a few photos of some of my handmade clothes that got posted on instagram. My instagram account!
Having dressed myself for a whole month in hand sewn clothes has encouraged me continue in this effort. Most days now i will wear something hand made and it feels good!
Thank you so much for your comment, its very encouraging for me. I need to get over my shyness a bit and get out there and share my makes more! Loving your posts on Instagram!
I’ve been reading your blog and it’s really great!! I love to see all your makes, and I am especially in love with your pink Sureau dress, I think I may add it to my list!
Well done for taking part in MeMadeMay, I did try but I failed a few days into the challenge 🙁 hopefully next year I’ll be more committed to it now that I understand how Instagram works.
I encourage you to carry on blogging, from what I’ve seen sewers love reading and seeing what other people create when looking for ideas and inspiration.
I’ve heard Carcassonne is a beautiful town but I’m afraid I’ve never been! I’ve travelled quite a bit around the South of France, but closer to the Pyrenees.
Keep the good work up with the blog!! I will be following your progress!
