It will be the first time I’ve considered signing up for MeMadeMay; last year I didn’t have nearly enough garments to even contemplate it. This year I’m giving it a go, although I’m fully aware it will not be easy and there will definitely be some repetition. I am intrigued to see whether it helps me to identify definite gaps in my wardrobe, though I could already hazard a fair guess what these may be (basic skirts, cardigans and outerwear…)

I’d like to think I will find time to post at least some of my outfit choices on Instagram, so feel free to check out @ccmercer to see how  I get on with that. 

Lastly, I’m hoping to expand my wardrobe by at least a couple more garments before the beginning of May. I’ve made 5 dresses and one top so far in 2016, with a sixth dress on the cutting table. 

MeMadeMay promises to be an interesting month. As well as monitoring the wearing my own makes, I’m very much looking forward to seeing how everyone else gets on. Plus, May and June are my favourite months. What’s not to love?
