Zoe announced a couple weeks ago the start of Me Made May 2012. I missed the start of this last year, and I dislike being late, so I didn't participate. This year I am on top of this, though!
I'm doing this challenge for three distinct reasons.
- There are some gaps in my closet that I am aware of. I'd much rather sew to fill those gaps if I can. This challenge gives me an excuse to sew more, and who doesn't like excuses?
- There are plenty of self-made items in my closet that I don't wear, ever. This challenge hopefully will help me to figure out why I don't like certain garments, in order to not repeat those mistakes in the future. Also, maybe I'll be motivated to fix things.
- Documenting this will hopefully help to get me in to the habit of taking regular outfit photos, which is something that I've been slacking on lately.
So, without further ado,
I, Meli of Codos on the Windowsills, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '12. I endeavour to wear one me-made or altered garment each day for the duration of May 2012'
