Each Me Made May I do like to try something different and this year I thought I’d play with the concept of a capsule wardrobe. What I’m going to do, is choose three colour-themed wardrobes based on nine different items and then mix and match those items to create my outfits. Each wardrobe is a 3 x 3 grid Soduko style, so I choose a top, a bottom and an over layer for each day.
Here is my first wardrobe as an example. I’ve chosen a brown-blue colour theme for this one. I suppose there is also a fair bit of orange too. I’m proposing to use these nine items over the next 8 to 9 days. Last month I participated for 2-3 weeks with #sewhappycolor2021. I really enjoyed the challenge and did discover a few interesting garment combinations in the process (I’m sure some will make a reappearance in Me Made May). However, I did end up with an untidy situation in the bedroom where I just kept on pulling new items out the wardrobe for a one day outing and never putting them back in. With more of a plan, I’m hoping to avoid that the chaos this time!
I’m slightly worried about the weather being too cold, so if I need to I will swap out the orange t-shirt for a long-sleeved top and update my Sudoko square. I can see that there are combinations of all sorts in there; some obvious, a few interesting ones, a couple of really boring ones, and some really “challenging” ones (possibly eye-sores).
On to the pledge for #memademay2021 (@sozoblog):
I, Steely Seamstress pledge to enjoy my me-mades, but not to the exclusion of the odd well-worn RTW item throughout May. I will follow my “Wardrobe Sudoko” plan and create interesting (and possibly wild) combinations and definitely not have a huge disorderly pile of clothes in my bedroom in the process!
