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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) 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!
