I’m envisioning this as a 13 month long project. I’ll take one month (this month, May 2014) to ‘prep’ (build clothes, get the blog going, make some plans, save my sanity, etcetera, etcetera.) and then I’ll wear the wardrobe for a year.
If I had planned the timing better, I would have shifted the start of wearing the wardrobe to line up with Me-Made-May, ah well. But I’ll definitely be following along and trying to pick up some tips.
But! My missed timing also means that I’ll end the year with a Me-Made-May! So maybe it wasn’t such poor timing after all.
May is going to be a month of ‘prep’ lots of making clothes, planning clothes, pinterest pinning, plus writing about clothes & philosophizing about clothes and sprinkled with a bit of freaking-the-fuck-out.
Then April 1st I’ll start wearing my self-made wardrobe and posting daily outfit photos here. I’ll post a daily outfit photos along with new pieces I’m working on, garments I’ve finished, and excerpts from the book that I’m writing to go along with this project.
I’ll keep that up until the end of May 2015. Then there will probably be some sort of wrap up, but I’m not sure what form that will take.

This will certainly be an adventure…
