I’ve been making quite a few running tops and skirts over the last few months, and have recently moved onto everyday clothing. It’s been years since I worked with woven fabrics AND sewed something for myself. *grin*
Last year I saw a lot of posts going around called “Me Made May”, so this year I’ve decided to join in. The idea is that you make a commitment on So Zo blog as to how you’re going to challenge yourself to wear clothing that you make yourself during the month of May. It’s very versatile, and each person gets to choose for themselves. You can read more about it here Me Made May 2014
I’ve made a commitment to wear one Made By Me garment each day during May. Originally I was thinking that would be a huge challenge, then realised that since it can be any garment it’s not that bad – most days when I’m running I wear one of my XYT tops, or around the house I wear a Jalie jumper that I made. Obviously I want to wear more than these, however it does mean that I’m not having to wear something new every single day. In fact, I could just make a pair of pyjamas and wear them every night… LOL
I do need to do a lot more sewing, and while I’m not going to panic sew to have a whole new wardrobe before May I do plan to sew several tops and pants before then.
If you’re a sewer, why not come and join in? You don’t have to commit to wearing a handmade garment every day, just once or twice a week if that is a challenge for you.
