My handmade month; it's Self Stitched September according to Veronica Darling!
I've never used Kaboodle before, so I know this is not uber 'designer' like in my layout, so please just LOL at me! This is my 'image board' for the outfits I wore twice during September:
I have a 2 week period with most of my clothes, it's some sort of automatic brain schedule thing that I have where if I wear my red heart skirt on a Tuesday, I automatically cancel it out of choosing it again until a fortnight later, so I would allow myself to wear it on the Wednesday, 2 weeks after I wore it. Is that weird? I don't even know why I've invented this rule or schedule in my head, but I just fall into it, and I guess it makes me wear the rest of my wardrobe on a rotation.
So overall, I felt super comfy and not restricted by SSS this year, and I probably have 2-3 second hand dresses and a couple of refashioned dresses that I missed wearing through the month. What I did notice though, and maybe I'll look at that at the end of the year of Sew Weekly, is that I didn't really wear as many SW garments as I'd thought I would... I'm worried that while Sewing Weekly is amazing and so fruitful in my mad sewing skillz world, I often speed through some things, and don't take as much time selecting my fabrics or testing out different techniques... and I find myself with some garments I won't wear again. But, there are some great themes coming up for Sew Weekly before the year is out, and I'm AMAZED at how I have been challenged with some elements of sewing and crafting by the Sew Weekly themes! My friend saw me the other day and was floored that I'd made pants! TROUSERS! YAY!
Thumbs up to Zoe who's spun us another Self Stitched September! You're amazing to blog and sew along with! YAY for the internetz! xoxo
