So it's that time of year again! Shortly after starting up the blog last year I embarked upon (and did pathetically) the 'Me Made May' challenge.
In a nutshell it's an initiative started (if I'm not mistaken) by Zoe over at 'So Zo...' which involves sewists endeavouring to work as many of their handmade creations into their daily outfit rotation as possible. The idea is that it builds confidence in sharing projects with the wider world and perhaps also sheds some light on why certain items get neglected thus helping with future sewing plans.
With that in mind, (if you haven't already spotted it) Sarai over at Colette Patterns has been running a brilliant 'Wardrobe Architect' feature which I'll be working into my 'MMM'14' in the hope that by June I'll not only have a few more handmade garments to add to the collection, but a much better understanding of what shapes / colours / garments to concentrate on (and likewise which to avoid).
Last year the aspect I found most tricky was the documenting process of having to take a half decent picture to unleash upon the internet (I really do not like being photographed!) -I also had less 'Me Made's' to choose from so here's hoping I do a better job this year!
So without further ado...
I, Marie, of 'Stokes Croft Stitching' endeavour to wear one 'Me Made' item at least 4 days per week for the duration of May, and to make a further 2 garments. I will also strive to better document this with one 'MMM'14' blog post per week.
