I thought long and hard about signing up for Me-Made-May this year. I already wear handmade garments every day. I don't shop for clothes anymore, with the exception of underwear, jeans and cardigans. Despite this, I finally decided to sign up so I could share my everyday wardrobe with the sewing community and enable me to reflect on the items that work for me. Here is my pledge:
'I, Leith of Sew Brunswick (www.sewbrunswick.blogspot.com.au), sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '14. I endeavour to wear predominantly handmade garments each day for the duration of May 2014. I will also use the opportunity to review my wardrobe and identify which items I actually wear. At the completion of MMMay 2014 I will deep clean my wardrobe and write a wardrobe plan. I will also take a photo of my outfit every day and post it on Instagram.'
I will post my handmade outfit everyday on Instagram (if you're not following me yet and would like to, my username is @sewbrunswick). I really need to cleanse my wardrobe. I have a wardrobe full of clothes but I really only wear 50% of it. I need to let go of the excess and build on the winners. I want to plan a capsule wardrobe and be able to build on this over time. Happy Me-Made-May!! L x
