The first half of May is over, meaning I am halfway through my Me-Made-May 2015 challenge. My pledge this year had two parts: to wear at least one garment per day that I had made or modified in some way, shape or form, and to finish all season-appropriate clothing works in progress. As the days went by, I started a sort of personal mini-challenge, to see how many days I could go without repeating a me-made garment.
So what’s the tally as of today, May 16? I have indeed worn one me-made garment per day, without repeating any of them (except for a pair of pants that I’d darned, though those weren’t the main me-mades of those days). Strangely enough, the weather suddenly turned hot a few days in to the month, so I wasn’t able to wear a lot of my colder mid-seasonal clothing, but that hasn’t been a problem for me.
As for my clothing WIPs, I’ve only machine darned 5 pairs of jeans, which I did all on one morning, though I know exactly what to do with a bunch of other WIPs, so hopefully I’ll be able to get those done quickly. An interesting thing is that my to-do pile has grown instead of gotten smaller. Yikes! And a lot of my WIPs are for my kids, so unfortunately I won’t be able to add them to my collection of me-mades for the rest of Me-Made-May.
I also realized that I don’t like posting photos of myself every day on social media. I did it just two or three times on Facebook, but that was about it. So that’s perhaps something that I can work on for the rest of this month’s challenge.
Before I show you the documentation, I have to thank my 8-year-old daughter, who took all of these pictures, most of them with our DSLR, except for May 10 and 12, which my husband took, and the one of the five pairs of jeans, which I took. Isn’t she awesome? So anyway, without further ado, here’s what I wore from May 1 – 16, 2015:
(on Nicky, creatively patched jeans)
May 5: (Hello, Ikea!)
May 8: (Hello, art gallery!)
WIPs completed: 5 pairs of darned jeans
May 10: (Hello, Ponti della Valle!)
Lengthened t-shirt (still unblogged)
I’m looking forward to the second half of this challenge, when the hardest part will be finishing all my WIPs! Are you participating in Me-Made-May this year?
