This year I joined Me May May, pledging to wear one garment I had made each week that I never or rarely wore, and to reflect on why I didn’t wear it. It’s week three already, so here’s my third…
Things are definitely improving as we move through May: I didn’t like anything about my first garment except the fit. I thought I didn’t like my second, but on reflection and discussing it with you lovely lot, I’ve realised, I love it, just not the colours. I like exhibit C and even like the colours. In fact, I’d go as far as to say, I love everything about it.
Thinking about why I’ve only worm it once, I’ve concluded that not only was last summer very wet and damp – more jacket and sweater than wrap weather – I’m not sure what I’ve got in my wardrobe that really works well with it.
Now summer’s finally appearing, I’m going to dig through my wardrobe to see if I have anything that really does work with it. If I can’t find anything, I’ll bear it in mind when I’m shopping.
All in all I’m glad I dug it out for #MMMay16, so I don’t forget I’ve got it.
