‘I, Julia of the secret life of seams, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’13. I endeavour to wear one self-made item each day for the duration of May 2013.’
It’s my second year, so what are we working with this time around?
That makes 18 items. [And some ironing, ignore those wrinkles for now!]
Quite a few things I’ve sewn since MMM ’12 have been gifts or novelty items but it’s still double the amount I worked with last year. Despite that, this will still be a challenge. There’s a lot on my plate in May and ensuring I wear and catalogue a me-made item every day is going to be tricky. The 18 items don’t all see regular rotation either, and certainly they’re not all office appropriate, which is where I spend five days a week.
But it should be fun! For me the highlights of Zoe’s fantastic event are:
– Shining a light on the functionality of your own self-sewn wardrobe
– Joining in with the community of other sewers
– Getting a sneaky peek into how people actually incorporate their items into their day-to-day lives
So here goes. Are you taking part this year? What’s your favourite part of MMM?
