Me Made May 2017!

by - 5/01/2017

Hi pinups! Just a quick one today to announce my Me Made May pledge for 2017. I started my sewing blog and dress making for myself last April, and my pledge for last year's Me Made May was pretty feeble as I only had 5 handmade items in my wardrobe. Read last year's pledge HERE. However, like last year's pledge, I'm lucky enough to still be self employed and my uniform of pjs and jumpers hasn't changed too much.

I do, however, have far more handmade items in my wardrobe including great everyday casual pieces alongside my fun vintage style dresses. Like last year's pledge, I'm also involving my birthday which is on the 17th, and will again wear a me-made dress on my birthday!

I, Abi, of The Crafty Pinup blog, pledge to wear at least 3 me-made outfits per week the whole month of May, including a handmade dress for my birthday.

Whilst it's certainly not a requirement of the initiative, I will be posting outfit and styling snaps on my Instagram, so if you'd like to have a nosey at my Me Made May progress, make sure you're following me @craftypinup. 


I'm hoping my pledge will inspire me to make more effort with my appearance when I'm working from home and to incorporate my handmade pieces into my everyday life a little better. I also hope it challenges my styling and helps me discover new ways to wear some of my beloved pieces. Along with the regular day-to-day outfits, I'll be sewing a dress for my birthday in my aim to continue to wear a handmade dress, which I started last year. You can see what I ended up making last year HERE.
