Me-Made June '11
'I, Gina , sign up as a participant of Me-Made-June '11. I endeavour to wear one garment I've made each day for the duration of June 2011'
Well, I did it now! What did I get myself into? I will be wearing mostly dresses for the month of June, because that's about all I sew right now. Shorts, some skirts and a few blouses might be nice. Honestly, I took this challenge, because my wardrobe is lacking and this will force me to take a closer look. Just a couple of weeks ago, as you know, I cleaned out my closet, which by the way I am so glad I did. I do not miss all those unloved, unworn garments, they were just in my way. Then yesterday, I spent the day with a friend who helps women build their wardrobes. She is a consultant, author and speaker on beauty. We talked about what is needed in a wardrobe, she even gave me a color wheel! She was very helpful with identifying gaps in my closet. Now today, Zoe's me-made June popped up on my blog reader. I had to sign on the dotted line. Boy, do I feel focused after all this. I have never been this intentional with my wardrobe! Anyway, my goal is to sew in the month of May the following:
1. A few solid colored skirts! Red, brown, and black.
2. a black dress to wear to a funeral. One of my family members is very ill and I may need to be prepared for this soon.
3. Some knit shirts to go with the skirts would be nice.
4. Some pants for camping!
Can I make 3 skirts, one dress, 3 shirts and a pair of pants in May? I don't know that's a lot! But, it's either that or I will have not much to wear!
What about you, are you up for the challenge?
Have a beautiful vintage day!
