Me-Made-May 2017


It is that time of year again where we sewists celebrate our makes throughout the month of May. Me-Made-May was started Zoe of Sozowhatdoyouknow fame, eight years ago!

This time I am actually signing up before May starts ( although only just!).  If you click on the #MMMay17 button in the side bar, that will take you to Zoe's 'sign up post' on her blog. Here is my pledge:

 'I, Tamsin from Pimp my Curtains blog or Tamsinwp_pmc on Instagram, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '17. I will endeavour to wear at least one me-made item of clothing each day for the duration of May 2017. I am going to remove rtw clothing from my wardrobe excluding underwear, socks and sweaters.  I also want to sew as much as possible from my 'stash', which shouldn't be too hard as most recent purchases have had a loose plan'

Nothing ground breaking. I removed rtw from my wardrobe for my pledge last year, which seemed to work quite well. I shall enjoy the challenge of not reaching for jeans everyday (unless I make some new ones - which are on my list!) 

Have fun everyone!


  1. Heh I really must give MMM a go one of these years but I'm chronically disorganised ...good luck with your pledge!

  2. Wow, I am impressed you removed all RTW! I have hardly bought any new RTW for several years - but I had so much to start with I still rely on it quite a lot. One day though.....
