Me-Made-May is almost here! I participated in this challenge for the first time last May and I really enjoyed it because it challenged me to wear the clothes I make more often. I am looking forward to participating again this year.
My pledge is as follows:
'I, Elizabeth of The College Seamstress, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '15. I endeavor to wear only me-made garments each day for the duration of May 2015. I will also be cleaning out my closet during the month of May in order to re-evaluate my wardrobe. '
Last year, my pledge was to wear only handmade clothes and I accomplished that task. I still wear my handmade clothes on a daily basis with 95% of my outfit being handmade. However, I usually wear my favorites and there are certain handmade items in my closet that have been deprived of seeing the light of day. :)
I have been wanting to clean out my closet for a long time, so hopefully this challenge will give me the encouragement to do that! I will update you on how that goes because I always find it extremely difficult to get rid of things I made (even if I never wear them). Hopefully, cleaning out my closet will help me discover holes in my wardrobe to guide my future sewing projects.
