weekend 1

about the start of Me-Made-May, the month long commitment to wear self stitched garments throughout the month of May. As I wrote on Facebook, I am not participating in it because if I did, I would be wearing either ball gowns or lingerie for thirty days. One commenter said, “we see nothing wrong with this….” and they were absolutely right. As long as I wear the ball gowns over the lingerie, I’m good to go!

I respect and admire those that can participate in MMM. I have a busy day job that keeps me from churning out more than a couple of garments a year. Mind you, my projects are usually extravagant, but I barely come close to double digits. So the fact that some people have a full thirty day’s worth of self-made clothes in their closets impresses me! Bethany, Marci, Nette, and all the other ladies participating out there… you rock!

    I’m the same! No where near high enough production levels here for MMM.

    The easiest way to meet the MMM challenge is to make your own bras and underwear! That is my key method for meeting my MMM goal.

    I wish I could participate in MMM but I am nowhere near having enough me-made clothes to fill up the month of May. I am creating at a more steady pace lately so I might get to that point someday.

    I saw the MMM challenge too! I’m such a new seamstress though and I don’t think the 3 items I’ve made so far will carry me through the month! lol! Maybe by next year I’ll have a handmade wardrobe fit for participating. :)

    I think it would be completely awesome to wear me-made lingerie the whole month. You don’t have to photograph yourself wearinig them (unless you want) right? I think it still would count.

    I wish I had enough time to make MMM goodies also! I am in awe of those who do. I would love to see more of your lingerie…

    Thanks for the love, Mad!! I was just thinking of adding some me made undies to my collection using your cute pattern!
