It’s May already! And I’ve signed up for my second Me-Made-May! For those who aren’t familiar with it, Me-Made May is an initiative created by Zoe, of So Zo…What do you know?: every year she encourages every person, animal or thing who can sew to challenge themselves during the month of May. How? Well, it’s up to you, but a good way to do it is committing to wear certain number of handmade clothes each week. (You can see my experience last year here and here!)
The challenge isn’t about who has more handmade clothes or who posts more photos in Instagram. The goal of Me-Made-May is to bring out of the closet all our long-forgotten-handmade-stuff and wear it. By doing so, we’ll be able to think about what we like (or not) about our handmade clothes and what can we do to make them fit to our personal style. That way, we’ll be able to sew clothes that we like and are proud to wear!
Actually I’ve been doubting about whether or not participating in the Me-Made-May’16, because in addition to all my classes and final exams (which take place at the end of May and I’m already freaking ou!), I’m going to be extra-busy with another thing: I’m starting an internship in a fashion company next week! Yay!! But I’ll have less time to document my Me-Made-May progress on the blog. Anyway, my original pledge was this:
‘I, Sofía, from http://www.silverliningatelier.com/, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’16. I endeavour to wear at least 4 me-made garments each week for the duration of May 2016, and write at least several posts showcasing garments that I’ve made using indie patterns.
Will I success? 😉
