Pledging for Me Made May
I've been thinking a lot about my pledge for me Made May this year and how I can up my game from last year. I didn't find it too hard, but I was actually on holiday for part of May, which of course makes photo taking a bit easier (and also the option is there for 2 outfits per day)!
Last year I went for 7 days a week, but a maximum of 2 days a week could be my Anise jacket.
I am giving myself a wildcard each week just in case I need it, but will try not to use them. If I do I will try to wear thrifted or vintage items.
I am also planning to get through my mending pile - I have a few things which are perfectly wearable apart from a hole in the pocket, broken zip or torn lining, so I am going to mend those, and a thrifted skirt to shorten.
In terms of sewing plans, I am going to carry on with my existing plans, but I am going to try and make some me made knickers. I have the free So Zo pattern printed and ready to go (to use up knit scraps) and I recently bought the gorgeous Measure Twice Cut Once Jane knickers to use up my leftover wovens!
So this year:
'I, Joanne of Sew Little Time, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '14. I endeavour to wear at least one handmade item each day for the duration of May 2014. I have 4 wildcards which I can use if I have to, but ideally will be vintage or thrifted items. I will also get through my mending/ alterations pile and make some knickers'
