I'm very excited to have participated in MMMay'13 (Me-Made-May-2013). This has been a great initiative to challenge myself into making and wearing my own creations. Being a newbie I was wise enough to pledge to participate only in the weekends (this time only, I promise!).
The real challenge - I was to find out - was that I did NOT have any me-made clothes, that I would actually have to MAKE my me-made clothes (but not to worry, I was reassured by my learning to refashion clothes - easy, quick, effective!). I'm happy to report that most weekend days were covered and the revelant posts will be published in the coming days.
How did I find the experience? It's an amazing challenge! I cannot believe I would dive into this world of refashioning so easily, but that alone has opened up my outlook on what I can and cannot do. I thoroughly enjoy following patterns, don't get me wrong. But to be able to give a second life to garments I already own - it's just unbelievable. To be able to grade patterns, even better! Now I really understand the glory of one's craft achievements and the luxury to wear clothes that perfectly fit ME! I followed plenty of the other bloggers through their MMMay'13 journeys (who, of course, DID have me-made clothes...) and I saw how fun this can be - thank you Zoe for organising this challenge and here's my pledge: by this time next year, I will have a whole wardrobe of me-made clothes!
