I’m going to jump in and challenge myself to try Me Made May 2012.
I, Lynn (littlepostcards.wordpress.com), sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’12. I endeavour to wear one sewn/refashioned or knit item each day for the duration of May 2012.
I think this will be a good challenge for me. I don’t have quite enough hand-sewn items to fill out a month’s wear of clothing, and it will encourage me to refashion those items I’ve been meaning to, get creative with the things I do like to wear, and determine what types of items I’d really like to add to my wardrobe. I threw in knit items too, but I don’t know if May will be cool enough for wool hats or socks, so we’ll see how that works out!
The one thing I’m not sure about is a daily photo parade here or via uploads to the flickr group. I will document my participation in some fashion, but at a slower pace and with a change-up of me standing in front of a shrub. I don’t think that would be that interesting, so I’m not sure why anyone else should! Maybe I can muster a weekly photo collage of closeups or details of the outfits I come up with. I’m a graphic designer—I’ll figure something out!
Have you ever participated in anything like this before? I know these challenges have been around for a while. What was your experience?
