Gearing Up for Me Made May 2014



It is coming to that time of year that has many sewists think about their wardrobe and if they have enough sewn to make it through a whole month.

The Me Made May challenge is an individual challenge based upon what each participant is comfortable with for him or herself. It is not a competition. Some choose one item each day, week or month. Others go for all outfits for the whole month.

For me, I am going to go for whole Me-Made outfits, except for outerwear and sweaters. I'm hoping this might give me a little incentive to get some shorts, skirts and tops done. A dress or two would be great as well as copying a ready to wear sweater that I have the fabric washed and already for sewing.

    1. You can majesty pledge any way you want, Vanessa. One handmade item each day. Two items each week. It is completely customizable. I'm hoping it will help me find holes in my wardrobe so I can plan better.

    1. Thanks Christy! I'm hoping I have enough to go together. I don't even have jammie tops and bottoms that go together. I'm having to go through my clothes and see what I do have and what I NEED to create actual outfits I can wear out of the house.
