Since I started a public Instagram account in January, I’ve decided to go in boots and all and commit myself to Me Made May. In addition to wearing at least 1 handmade item per day this May, I will also finish all my current works-in-progress items (which is shamefully large).
I’ve enjoyed following along with the Me Made May hashtags in previous years, even though I never took part myself. And although it’s not a photo-challenge, lots of folks do take photos of their outfits for a little bit of public accountability.
There’s lots of amazing pictures in the following hashtags from previous years: #MMMay #MeMadeMay2018 #MeMadeMay18 #MeMadeMay17 #MeMadeMay2017
What is Me-Made-May and how does it work?
From Zoe’s website: Me-Made-May is a challenge designed to encourage people who make their own clothes to develop a better relationship with their handmade wardrobe. You set the specifics of your own challenge to make it suitable and useful for YOU. However, one very common pledge is for a participant to aim to wear one self-stitched or refashioned garment each day for the duration of May.
My current unfinished projects include (but are not limited to): Cashmerette Pembroke Dress (just hems to do), Cashmerette Concord Top (Neckline and hems to do), StyleArc Maude Tunic (only cut out), StyleArc Autumn (only cut out), Peppermint Magazine Wide Leg Pants (hems to do), In The Folds Rushcutter Dress (Need to recut the sleeve section), Peppermint Magazine Peplum top x3 (various amounts of work to do).
Are you signing up for Me-Made-May? If so, what will you be pledging? Would you be interested in a Me-Made-May-Plus-Size hashtag?
Oh yes to the me made may plus size hashtag! Great idea
