Hoorah! Today is the first day of Me-Made-June - a whole month of wearing handmade clothes. It will be really interesting to see what gets rotated the most, and I'm determined to give everything I've made a spin out of the wardrobe. In the past few weeks I've been going through all my me-mades, trying to see which pieces work together - I noticed that they fall into three distinct categories:
Me-made clothes I wear all the time and that I feel are indistinguishable from store-bought clothes. Happily, about two thirds of my handmade clothes fall into this category.
Me-made clothes that have been worn once or twice but for some reason haven't really made the grade.
Me-made clothes that have never been worn. Ever.
These are the clothes equivalents of those poor kids that used to always get chosen last for the rounders team. I feel more than a little sorry for them and a bit guilty too, so one of my objectives is to give the clothes in this category a turn and actually wear them. There are only three pieces in this category and they're all lovely. "So why don't you wear them?" I hear you all cry. I will. I will. I promise.
And what did I wear today? Well, it's half term here in the UK (again) so no dressing up for me today as I have to entertain my sons. In my experience, small boys are like dogs and need to be regular exercised or they go a bit nuts. So for the next three days I have to be suitably attired for running around the park and playing football. On Saturday, when my husband's around and can take over football-playing duties, I'll dress up a bit. For now...

So far, so good. See you all tomorrow... x
