I really enjoyed the challenge of Me Made May and it definitely got me thinking about what I should wear every day – trying to make a more conscious effort to go for my handmade rather than shop bought items was an interesting process and a frustrating one when I couldn’t find what I wanted in my handmade wardrobe. I know some people have so much handmade stuff that its super easy for them to dress entirely in their own creations every day but I know that isn’t my situation. I guess if it becomes that easy to do the challenge it isn’t really for you anyway. I want to work towards a more thorough wardrobe for the rest of this year and maybe by May 2016 I will be able to participate with more of a sense of purpose, being able to actually show off more of my handmade items.
The real thing Me Made May highlighted for me is that I wear only a small section of my handmade wardrobe and whilst I know as mentioned above, that some of this is because I seemed to just make a whole load of summery things last year, I feel a little ashamed of this. I know it’s not a new revelation but it still stings to realise something you spend so much time doing isn’t really yielding the results it should. I really need the seasons to be reflected in my wardrobe, more staples, and as mentioned in my previous post more plain items to go with other things. I will try and learn from this experience and carry forward my plan to create a more versatile wardrobe over the coming months! Bring on Me Made May 2016!!
Did you participate in Me Made May? Did you achieve your goal, not quite make it or break through and wear much more than you originally pledged? It would be great to hear your experiences.
