i, lisa g. of notes from a mad housewife, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’14. I endeavour to wear at least one handmade item each day for the duration of May 2014.
one of my sewing resolutions back from new years 2013 was to make an effort to sew things for daily wear. sometimes that’s t-shirts, jeans, skirts, silk blouses, casual dresses, sweatshirts… you get the idea. i have ample makes to choose from, and it’s rare that i reach for my RTW, aside from a few threadbare tees or my six year old yoga pants (ahem—i totally plan on making my own soon-ish). i chose to set the goal of wearing handmade every day because it’s less and less of a challenge for me. however, setting what is for many such a lofty goal, is not to make lesser or non-pledgers feel guilty or bad about their own wardrobes! MMM is about celebrating this crazy hobby we have in whatever way we can, whether it’s everyday or once a week, or just watching from the sidelines. we all have varied sewing goals and aspirations, and a nearly 100% handmade wardrobe just happens to be mine. yours is most likely different, and that’s okay!
documenting MMM will undoubtedly happen on instagram, and maybe a round-up or two on the blog (it would be helpful to know how to easily create an IG collage…).
here’s to a great me-made-may ’14!!!
