Its that time of year again folks! That time of the year when I do my up most to wear something I've made every day of the month!
Basically for me made may you make up your own pledge to wear handmade clothes for a certain amount of time during the month of may [it depends on your circumstances and how much me made stuff you have which is why you make your own pledge.] More information can be found by clicking on the link.
So without further ado here's my pledge:
'I, Frankie of www.knitwits-owls.blogspot.co.uk , sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '16. I endeavour to wear at least one handmade or upcycled item each day for the duration of May 2016 good weather allowing'
I added a weathering allowing clause this year because last year I ended up having to give up because it was cold and soggy and my handmade clothes were not practical for the nursery run, especially in the rain! Although I guess that did give me a kick up the backside to make more practical clothing and not just party dresses etc.
So I've actually started my mmmay prep already and by prep I mean washing and iron all of my handmade clothes ready for the first of may! I do tend to wear a lot of handmade stuff anyway so I guess its a good opportunity to re-explore my ready to wear wardrobe throughout april! And to see if there's anything I want to recreate afterwards!
With regards to documenting it, I might do daily selfies on instagram although I'm not sure how easy that will be as we don't have a full length mirror in our house [I know I'm so deprived!, Its a wonder I look as fabulous as I do.....] And then I might do a round up of my weeks outfits every 7 days on the blog.
And then when its all over I'll review what I loved wearing what I hated and where i need to add more to my wardrobe!
Should be FUN!
