I deliberately chose not to participate in me-made-May this year (not that I’ve ever participated in it, but I have watched it with great interest), mostly because I had enough on my plate this May without adding the extra pressure of a self-imposed “something else I have to do”. Despite that, when I remembered I did take a photo of what I was wearing. I managed to remember on 24 days out of the 31, which wasn’t too bad!
What did I notice? That I wear me-made most of the time. I hadn’t made a pledge or a promise to myself about wearing garments that I’d made myself. But other than underwear, stockings, socks and shoes (and my made-to-measure-by-wonderful-Balinese-tailor jackets), I do wear at least one garment or accessory – and often an entire outfit – that I’ve made myself. I’m happy with that.
And yes, there are a few as-yet-unblogged garments in that mosaic. Had better get onto that – except that tomorrow is Stella’s 6th birthday party, which she is MOST excited about, and that is definitely taking priority!
