Me-Made-June 2011

Me-Made-June is coming up very soon. I thought long and hard about whether or not to participate this time. I got a bit bored by Me-Made-March, even though I had a lot of new self made clothes to wear since Self Stitched September 2010. I realized that it really bothers me to limit myself to *all* handmade clothing, which is what I chose to do for the last two challenge months.

I pretty much wear all hand made clothing anyway, and I have some nice clothing in my closet that rarely sees the light of day. Some of it is handmade by others, some of it is boutique clothing. None of it is mass produced ready-to-wear. Most of it is neglected, because I seem to have this thing about wearing my own clothing.

So, this time, I decided I want to incorporate these pieces into my daily wardrobe. I was just staring at my closet and there are some nice pieces that I didn't make, but deserve to see the light of day.

Just say "no" to fashion orphans. :)

So, without further ado:

I, Shams of, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-June '11. I endeavor to wear something hand made each day for the duration of June 2011. At least one of garment will be made by me, but some might be made by others or be boutique pieces.
