This is my first time to join in on the #memademay challenge. Last year I definitely didn’t have enough clothing to last a whole month, but I’m going to give it a good shot this year! I really fancied this challenge because the nature of it appeals to me, plus, on the more practical side, I could see lots of people getting good results with it for their creation processes.
If you don’t know it, Me Made May is an initiative created by Zoe of the So, Zo, What Do You Know blog and this is its 8th year already. She explains it all in much better detail than I ever could, but essentially the idea is that you create a pledge for the month of May that involves wearing or making self-made garments. There are many, many ways you can pledge, but the principal idea is that it’s a personal challenge that works for you.
I am starting off with what could be regarded as the most popular pledge and it is this:
‘I, Claire from bellecitadel.com and @belle_citadel, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’17. I endeavour to wear one me-made item of clothing each day for the duration of May 2017’
This is going to be challenging for me, but I’m really looking forward to it. I hope it will help me take a good, long look at my makes and wardrobe and come up with some great outfit ideas, as well as streamline and consolidate my style. Let’s see!
If it sounds like something you’d be interested in, just visit Zoe’s blog here and add your pledge to the comments. Sounds like fun, no?
