It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The time when we challenge ourselves to stretch out of our comfort zone and see our wardrobe in new ways!
This is the 10th year of Me-Made May, hosted by the brilliant Zoe from ‘So, Zo…what do you know? blog. Ten years!!!! Can you believe it? The sewing community is full of theme months now, but back when MMMay started, it was really unique. I’m so glad Zoe keeps hosting it!
Last year the Sewcialists did a whole theme month around Me-Made May, appropriately called #SewcialistsLoveMMMay! Did you know that you can easily find post from pervious theme months in our header drop-down menus? If you are stuck picking a pledge, you should check out last year’s posts!
Here are a few of our favourite posts from last year:
- How to record your MMMay Experience – Photos NOT REQUIRED!
- Sustainably sewing your MMMay Wardrobe
- An Interview with Zoe!
- MMMay in Japan open up a whole new world!
- How much Me-Made is enough?
- Going Vintage – a journey through MMMay photos
- Confession – I don’t really do MMMay
- Perspectives from new and experienced MMMay-ers
If you haven’t made your pledge yet, now’s the time! Go leave your pledge in the comments on Zoe’s blog post. And remember, the goal is to challenge yourself to a learning experience — but you don’t need daily photos! Record and learn in any way you want.
Are you going to take part?
After almost 10 years of serious sewing Me Made May is every day. Except for undies, shoes, socks and some outerwear, I am wearing something I made almost every single day. The rare days I don’t I’m wearing a pair of RTW jeans and a Land’s End polo. So no, I won’t be participating but watching from the sidelines. I do enjoy seeing what others are making and wearing.
It’s always fun to see how people mix their wardrobe in new ways! 🙂
Yay! ready for May! I actually did Me Made March, since I have a lot of winter clothes too that deserved attention.
That’s a smart idea!
This will be my 2nd year! I have learned so much about what works and dosn’t work I think I’m ready for this year with a clear direction! Thanks for the post and here we go! <3
