For the past three years, I have taken part in Me Made May. If you don’t already know, this challenge started by a sewing blogger called Zoe, eight years ago.
It is a fun challenge that gets the sewing community together and we make a pledge for the month of May regarding our handmade wardrobes.
The pledge is completely unique to you and what you feel you want to do in that month. As my handmade wardrobe has grown so much over the past couple of years, I feel very confident that I will be able to wear handmade clothes every day, seeing as I wear handmade most of the time anyway! I thought that I would add some extra elements in for myself as well this year, so here is my pledge:
‘I, Sarah McKenna, of LikeSewAmazing, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’17. I endeavour to wear at least one handmade item each day for the duration of May 2017.
I will post daily outfit pictures on Instagram and also do a weekly round up blog post of my handmade items with a final summary blog at the end of May.
I pledge to not buy any new fabric during the month of May, but to shop from my stash (commissions aside)’
Apologies in advance for all of the outfit of the day spam!!
Let me know in the comments if you are joining in and what your pledge is!
