I’ve been wanting to participate in a me-made challenge since I first read about it a year ago. Sadly at the time I only had an apron and a skirt in my me-made closet. “Oh well, maybe next time…,” I thought. Well, next time is next month for me. After meeting Zoe this weekend, and getting some great suggestions as to how to go about Me-Made-May my way, I decided to jump in feet first and do it.
“I, Melizza of Pincushion Treats, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’12. I endeavor to wear a me-made garment or accessory at least three days a week for the duration of May 2012.”
I am quite bad about not going through my closet when looking for something to wear. I gravitate to my flavor of the month, be it a t-shirt or pair of jeans that I will wear to death. One Pattern One week taught me to think beyond my go-to outfits. I became more thoughtful in what I wore and loved how I looked every day. Now if I can feel like that for most of May I will be one happy bunny. And surely I will pick up some good habits along the way. I’m looking forward to marrying my forgotten ready-to-wear clothes with my me-made garments and accessories and seeing what new outfits come of it.
