- I’ve made enough clothes to wear something hand-made every day, without it being a struggle. Hooray!
- I haven’t got enough to wear 70% hand-made, which was my goal. I’m going to work towards that though.
- I wear too much blue.
- I need to make more skirts. And trousers. And day dresses. Casual things. But in more interesting fabrics.
- I don’t need to make any more skirts from denim. ‘A denim skirt’! I say to myself. ‘Now that would always come in handy. That’s definitely the missing gap in my wardrobe’. Doing MMM opened my eyes to the fact that I have about 8 and that I wear too much denim anyway (it’s the safe option).
- I have a serious problem with cardigans. I wore one every day in May, except for that week when England unexpectedly turned into Spain*. I think I’ve worn a cardigan every day for the last 15 years. I have so many cardigans that several of my Flickr photos were favourited by a creepy cardigan fetishist (no lie). I may need knitwear rehab.
* Even then I carried one around in case of a sudden cold snap
- Taking a photo of yourself every day gives you a startlingly different perspective on your style. It’s recommended!
- I’d like to be more adventurous with the clothes I sew. I’m BORED of wearing navy blue and beige.
- Three weeks of torrential rain, followed by a heatwave, then back to the monsoon again, really tests the versatility of a home-made wardrobe.
- Leaving your camera on the platform at Farnborough station will put a serious dampener on documentation of Me-Made-May (and blogging in general).
(p.s. HUGE thanks to Zoe for organising the whole thing!)
(p.p.s. Anyone looking to sell an old camera?)
