SSS How I did...

The answer in short is not very well!
I managed 25 out of 30 days. Not the best ever.

The only excuse I have is that since I started losing weight most of my me mades are either too big or not massively flattering.
Nevertheless I still enjoyed it and it has encouraged me to keep wearing me mades and has shown me what is most useful in my wardrobe! Plus I found some good combinations and outfits.
Here is Day 20 onwards

This is my new Storybook skirt which I wore for 3 days running I love it so damn much!

This is a key example of something that was too tight and now is too roomy! Plus the wrong bra oops! Well at least I didn't leave the house!

My Etta Cardigan got a lot of wear. Is a shame its bobbling like crazy. I think I may have to make another. The fuchsia colour just goes with everything! Overall most of my outfits were fairly imaginative and interesting which is what I was going for, its just a shame thats hard to sustain that for 30 days! I'm slowly building the wardrobe and am feeling a bit more prepared for the rumoured colder weather. (Snow in Oct apparently.) I'd really like my Lady Gray made soon so I can make the most of its warmth!
How did you do with Self Stitch Sept?


  1. I think you have done really well!

  2. Great colour combinations!

  3. I think you've done exceptionally well! My sewing machine is 10 years old this year, and I don't have enough me-made clothes to get through a whole month. Your skill level is definitely progressing and your colour planning is awesome. Such an inspiration!!

  4. I love that storybook skirt too! So cute and versatile!


I love reading what you have to say!
