Happy Wednesday, makers! It’s the first day of Me Made May and I have decided on my pledge for this year! I have been working in my loungewear this year and I’m feeling in a bit of a rut, sewing wise. I want to encourage myself to make nice things and to do that, I need to wear nice things to ‘work’ each day! I pledge to get properly dressed for work and wear a non-loungewear outfit that includes at least one handmade piece (though likely more). If you want to learn more about Me Made May, you can do so here!
