My Pledge, Me Made May '14

Wednesday, April 30, 2014

Well people, May starts tomorrow (for me!) and it's high time I wrote my pledge. I've taken a bit more time over it mostly because I wanted something that was achievable for me.

'I, Jen from Jennifer Lauren Vintage, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '14.  I endeavour to wear at least one me made garment each day for the duration of May 2014 with a round up of outfits each week'

Yep, my pledge is exactly the same as it was last year (as well as the photo!). Zoe talks a lot about how our pledges should be a challenge for us, as that's kind of the whole point, so I wracked my brain about what I could do that was challenging and different from last year. I slowly realised that May is going to be one heck of a busy month for me, and that actually, my pledge from last year is going to be just as challenging this year, but in different ways.

Since May last year, I've worked hard on sewing items that I enjoy wearing and that actually get worn. They mix in with the wardrobe I already have and I'm actually really proud of my wearable hand-made wardrobe (plus I've been working on my second, third and fourth patterns that hopefully fit in with this theme of a wearable hand-made wardrobe for everyone! Watch this space for a few sneaky peeks of my test garments during May).

So, have you made your pledge for this year? Remember to sign up on Zoe's blog and join the Flickr group and the Pinterest group*.


* If you already followed me on Pinterest before the Me Made May '14 board was created and you want access to pin to it, please send me an email ( with a link to your pinterest profile. I had a number of followers before that board was created, and I don't really have any way of knowing who of those initial followers want to participate. So, it's a bit easier if you email me to let me know you'd like access. Ta!

  1. OOooooo! 2nd, 3rd and 4th! You're a busy lady! I'm excited to see what the month ahead holds in store!

    1. Yep! I'm hoping to have the second one out at the end of May/start of June, all going according to plan (when does that ever happen?).

  2. Did I say we have the same machines?%))

  3. How exciting that you have more patterns planned! I hope to find some time to make your blouse this weekend, I've had the pattern for a couple of weeks now, but haven't found time to sew dammit!!

    1. Yeah, exciting and nerve wracking! Excited to hear what you think of the pattern!!

  4. I'm going to to Me Made for the first time this year, my pledge is tiny MM just four times a week, but I think it's what is challenging for each individual. Looking forward to seeing your new pattern ideas.

  5. I took part last year and am taking part again this year. My pledge is similar to yours in that I want to wear something different each day and post round ups once a week. The other part of my pledge is to get rid of things that don't fit or I don't like or at least repurpose them into something I will wear. Hopefully by the end of the month my wardrobe will be edited to only things I love!

    I love your Afternoon Blouse and can't wait to see what you come up with next!
