Me-Made-May ' 13

So, I've seen this popping up every where...and have also been wondering if I should sign up for this challenge.  I don't have enough things that I make to wear 7 days a week...  but I was reading some of the sign-ups, and some people were saying only 2 days a week, or 3 days a week or so.
Oh, this I can do.  I might have to repeat wearing my clothes over and over again but this will be fun.

So here's my pledge:

'I, Lily, of Lily Can Sew, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '13. I endeavour to wear my "made by me" garments for atleast two times a week for the duration of May 2013'
I forgot to mention that only somewhere on my body will have the "made by me" garment.  Not the whole outfit.
This is my first year doing this, and I'm scared.  Maybe I should just say 1 time a week haha, that is only 4 things.  But I said 2 times a week, that is 8 things that I need to find.  So, quickly in my head I am trying to count how many items I have. 
Today I'm wearing my black and white dress to work, I can wear it again next month.
Let me try to list some that I know I can wear.
1-  Blue circle flowers shirt
2-  Black and white big floral print dress
3-  Pink vine dress
4-  The yellow top I made a long time ago, I think it was my "first official shirt"
5-  The" First Dress" I made last year
6-  The Pink black floral dress
7-  The ugly mini aodai --- I'll have to find something else to replace this one
8-  Hippie flower peplum top
9-  Blue peplum top  --- OK, this will replace the ugly mini ao dai
10- I have the first black and white dress called "unzip my dress"
11- I have the blue green collar dress but can't wear it, after I washed and dried it, it shrunk to children's size
12- Oh, I forgot my purple half circle dress, yay!!!
OK, this is good now.  I have 10 things to wear.  Maybe from now til then I'll make more and can wear more.  Yay!!!
So excited!!!  Now I'm ready!
I gave 2 shirts away to my sister, the black and red peter pan collar one, and the "new job shirt" one. 
Now I'm excited!!!
Maybe I'll cheat and make a simple nightgown for me to wear, it counts too right?  LOL  haha
