It's that time of year again to be thinking about Me-Made-May 2017 and Sweet Zoe from 'So, Zo.... What do you know? has put up her information post and sign-ups for this year.
Personally I am wearing handmade garments every day now and it would be most unusual at this point in my handmade journey, to wear an entirely rtw outfit. But oh how I remember the admiration back in 2013, when I first began sewing garments for myself, admiring those lovely ladies who had enough handmade items to participate in a Me-Made-May and how I longed for the opportunity to one day, possibly, be one of 'them.' 2014 was my first year participating in Me-Made-May and wow, what a struggle it was as my handmade garment choices were so few and far between. That year's month was almost entirely of repeats upon repeats yet as the other participants left such kind encouraging comments, I felt more a sense of motivation to continue sewing for myself than a sense of 'defeatedness'. At the end of my first year's participation I was now more determined than ever to build/make a handmade wardrobe of choices. A collage of 2014's photos are below.
So without further ado.....
I, Lisa, Lisa's Carolina | Handmade and @lisascarolina on Instagram, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '17. I endeavor to wear a handmade garment each day for the duration of May 2017.
Looking forward to Me-Made-May 2017 and hope to see you there too! And thank you Zoe for hosting again this year.
Happy Sewing Everyone! :)
