Thoughts so far:
- Daily photos are fun to follow on Instagram and blogs, but I really dislike taking them myself. It was mostly cold this week, with a few very cloudy, dark days, which made the task even harder. Now, Zoe does specify in her description of the challenge that the daily selfies are not a requirement, but we are nonetheless in the era of “photos or it didn’t happen” even if that’s an unwritten rule…
- Wearing at least one me-made item a day is not terribly hard. Having to document it, though, makes me slightly self-conscious about my go-to items. I’m not a particularly exciting dresser to begin with, but I also tend to feel very constrained by context and tasks on a given day. I wish this past week had been a bit more interesting wardrobe-wise… with less time spent in those RTW jeans, but it couldn’t be helped. In my defense, I also wore me-made socks on those days… but I forgot to document that and now they’re in the wash. I guess there’s a lesson there.
- Did I already say I really, really enjoy seeing everyone’s makes in action this month? Lots of sewing inspiration there.
- I made something. It was on my list but not really among necessities/practical makes. Details soon.
How’s Me-Made May going for you?
