I wasn’t sure until this morning if I was going to take part in Me-Made-May this year. I’ve loved participating the last two years and had decided last year that wearing one me-made garment a day was too easy – in fact I’d planned to make this years challenge all about me-made outfits.
This year however, since I’ve been out of work, I rarely wear me-made. But as I was sitting in bed this morning checking out everyone’s me-made posts on instagram, my eye wandered up to my clothing rail. I realised that of the 44 garments hanging in this photo, only 7 are RTW. It’s not such a high ratio of me-made to RTW in my drawers but still, I’ve been slowly replacing RTW with me-made as it wears out. So I figured this year, more than ever before I really need to push to wear my me-mades.
So here is my pledge:
I, Rosemary, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’17. I endeavor to wear ONE me-made garment each day for the duration of May 2017
