IT’S GONNA BE MAYY.
I know, I have already made that joke BUT the song is still stuck in my head, so TAKE THAT, INTERNET.
It is now, the mecca month for all sewists and sewers alike, Me Made May 2017 is upon us.
Err, was upon us yesterdayyyy but let’s forget that little bit of information.
I have officially signed up on the Me Made May website
with my pledge:
“I, Natasha of Confident Beginner (www.confidentbeginner.com), sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’17. I endeavor to wear one item of me-made clothing each day for the duration of May 2017, as well as rock some UFO’s (Unfinished Objects) that I haven’t had the motivation to complete.”
And there you have it folks. My pledge to you.
There will be repeats, obviously, I am neither a rock nor an island. I also feel quite confident as I already wear mostly me-made clothing daily as it is (on the top half of my body at least), but I do have a vacation in the mix, so shit may get a bit shwifty toward the end of the month.
I also plan on taking more consideration to repair and redo some of the makes that I do not wear that often, due to fit issues and fabric choices, as well as possibly retire some items that no longer can be worn. It’s a me-made may/slow fashion/capsule wardrobe kind of month. It’s going to be good (I hope. At least the idea is on-point, i’ll see how life wants to kick it).
I am hoping to get around to weekly check-ins on the blog, but as we all know and realize, I am not that good at time management. BUT, my insta will be poppin’ each day so do go check it out and follow me if you are not already doing that MMKAY.
FINALLY, what I didn’t mention in the offish post but there is ANOTHER goal for this years Me Made May.
U ready for this?
Hold on to your butts
Shauna and I are going to slowly roll are way into a pair of legitimate denim me-made jeans.
Then, and only then, I will have more than 3 pairs of jeans and the world will be good once again.
LET’S SEE HOW THIS GOES, READERS AND FELLOW LOVERS OF ME.
