My favourite part of sewing

My favourite part of sewing, the thing I love the most, the thing that drives me to do it…. is to have access to clothes.

I sew so that I can wear clothes.

My favourite part of sewing is wearing clothes.

There’s no correct way to grow (or not grow) as a sewist.

There’s lots planned for May, and spreading some plus-size sewing love!

Check out #MMMayPlus, #MeMadeMayPlus, and the #MeMadeMay2019Plus hashtags for an idea of how people were involved with Me Made May Plus in 2019!

What’s Me Made May?

Me Made May is the brainchild of Zoe from the blog ‘So, Zo’. Read more about Me Made May 2020 here and see her list of Frequently Asked Questions here.

How to be involved?

As Zoe explains in her FAQ, there’s no right way to get involved with Me Made May, and the same goes for Me Made May Plus!

You can share photos, share your outfit in your stories, take some artistic flat-lays of your outfits, sketch your outfit on a croquis (or use My Body Model croquis if you have them), or you can do none of the above and just concentrate on enjoying wearing your me-made items!

You don’t have to wear 100% me-made every day, you get to decide how much or how little you’d like to do!
