The Self-Made Wardrobe is a project where I only wear garments I’ve made.
It’s a year long experiment in getting dressed without clothing labels –
it’s a year about noticing patterns, trying things, and observing what happens.
Day 269 – Sunday, April 26th
hand knit sweater dress
black scarf // black leggings // various rings
There’s no thrill, quite like the thrill of new clothing – especially when you can’t just run out and buy it.
This might actually be the first week, (since way back at the beginning of the project), where I finished & wore two new pieces of clothing in one week. And coincidentally, just in time for Me-Made-May!
I’ve never participated Me-Made-May before, since I’m about as much of a joiner as Daria Morgendorffer, and prior to this self-made wardrobe challenge my made-by-me-for-me wardrobe was basically non existent.
This year, I sort of forgot about Me-Made-May, until I was writing today’s post and realized that today is the 1st of May. So I guess, though I’m not “officially” participating, I am kind of participating by default.
Sort of? Maybe? (my internal Daria is feeling very conflicted.)
Either way, I’ll be following along with Me-Made-May on instagram (the hashtag is #mmmay15 if you want to follow along too.) And also, continuing my self-made wardrobe challenge, by wearing only garments made by me (accessories & undergarments don’t count) – and by the time May is over the self-made wardrobe project will have passed day 300 and officially be in the home stretch.
Are you doing Me-Made-May this year? Or have in the past?
