I can’t believe it is May already! As I said in my last post, I am about to start a new job and for the next couple of months I am going to be living out of a suitcase during the week.
I have been struggling to work out how I could manage Me Made May in these circumstances. I wear handmade most days already, so that in itself isn’t a challenge. The thought of trying to post rubbish selfies each day was also a bit depressing – I know the daily photos aren’t the main point but I love the social aspect and find it inspiring to see what other people are wearing.
Today I was packing my suitcase and it occurred to me that each week I am going to have to create a capsule wardrobe. I can only carry a few items and they have to work together and provide enough options for the week. It’s a good opportunity to check out whether my favourite items work for my new job, whether I have enough basics and how everything fits together.
Possibly this will only be interesting to me, but this is about how I get the most out of my handmade wardrobe so it hopefully be useful and focus my limited sewing time on essentials.
I, Louise of notsewsimple, sign up as a participant of Me Made May 2016. I will endeavour to find a way to wear my handmade wardrobe out of a suitcase each week.
I will be hanging out on Instagram @notsewsimple and telling you more about the contents of my suitcase back here.
