Me Made May 2014

I’ve been debating whether or not I should participate in Me Made May this year. I don’t really have enough handmade clothes for each day. But reading a post by Leila of Three Dresses finally convinced me. She pledged to wear something handmade five days a week. So I immediately thought, Yes! That’s doable!

So here’s my pledge: As a participant of Me Made May 2014, I pledge to wear at least one handmade item five days a week.

Today I wore a bias cut skirt I made from a lovely cotton print I got from Britex Fabrics about five years ago. I think that’s when I made this skirt. It’s been washed enough times so that the cotton feels very soft.

(I’m currently on a business trip in LA so I’m attempting my first post using my iPhone. Tomorrow I plan on wearing a dress from a 1957 McCall’s pattern.)

Are you participating in Me Made May? I’d love to see what you’re wearing!

    How cool! I’m really looking forward to seeing your outfits. Maybe by next year I’ll have enough me-mades to participate in this cool event! =)

    Also: mad props for posting this from a phone–I’m impressed!

      I’m sure you’ll have plenty of things to wear by next year. Plus it doesn’t need to be the entire outfit – could just be a top or a skirt. 😉
      It was interesting trying to do it all on my phone. I did have to go back and fix a photo size on the computer later but it did pretty much work! I used the WordPress app on my iPhone.

    I’m so glad you joined! You know me…if it’s stressful, I won’t do it. hehe
