Me Made May 2016

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 , 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!

much love




  1. Looking forward to seeing your blogs on this. Does jewellery and scarves etc count for this?

    1. I'm guessing so, I thinks it's basically anything you've made, I used scarves and stuff ? X
