Last year I managed to document my handmade outfits in May nearly everyday. Though I didn't manage to blog about it and you could only see them on my Instagram.
I wear a me-made garment nearly everyday, and my me-made wardrobe is fairly large so I believe it won't be a problem to participate this year. Anyway, I have a couple of things sitting in my closet, that I don't wear so frequently, therefore I want to integrate them in my pledge. Also I want to find out, why I don't wear them and maybe donate the garments that don't fit into my life anymore.
'I, Tine from sewontrend.blogspot.com, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '15. I endeavour to wear at least one me-made garment each day for the duration of May 2015. Moreover I want to wear especially the garments, I haven't worn that often and donate the pieces to a charity, if I didn't want to wear them during May.'
I always feel bad, when I give away clothes, that I don't wear anymore, because I feel stupid for buying or making them once. But I guess it's better to have a smaller wardrobe of things you love instead of a stuffed closet, where you don't even remember that you have the garments.
I'm going to share my thoughts and outfits every day on Instagram and do a round up every five or six days, depending on my schedule. I will also take part in the German Stoffwechsel challenge. I hope I've got the time to keep you updated on everything. But as my sewing machine is in the repair shop again, I am not able to sew and can spend the evenings writing blog posts and taking pictures.
