It's that time again. Time for the lovely Zoe to challenge the sewers in the blogosphere to actually WEAR and get some use out of the things we create. The first time I participated in a me-made month, I was new to sewing for myself, but I think it was really a turning point. It forced me to wear what I'd put time and effort into. There were lots of reasons why the things I'd made weren't making it out of my closet, but the accountability of a me-made month challenge was the kick in the pants that I needed to take seriously the money and time I had invested in the few pieces of clothing I had made.
Me-Made May 2012 will be my third challenge. Last time I committed to one me-made item every day, but that included scarves and bags and it also included altered items. This time I'm committing to wear at least 7 me-made CLOTHING items each week. It may not be one a day, but it has to add up to 7 by the end of the week. No accessories included. No altered items included, although I'll probably mention when I did alter something I'm wearing.
Here is the official blog post in case you want to join.
