Henceforth to be known as SSS1, SSS2 and so on. During Self-Stitched September I will wear at least one thing I have stitched each day. Stitched can mean sewing, embroidery, knitting, crochet, etc... I would like to add a button widgetty thing to my sidebar, but I am just not techy enough.
Here is the first photo, a really terrible picture of what I am wearing today. Since I snapped the photo at 10am and now it is 11-31am and I am wearing my pyjamas again, there is no chance I am getting dressed again to take a better photo. And the exciting news is that there are 29 more pictures to be taken, I am sure the photo quality can only get better!!!
- Target Peacock coloured stretch cord jeans. I've taken the hems up and also added four darts to the back waistband and I sewed up the zipper fly when it broke.
- Medium Aquamarine top from Rockmans.
- Medium Aquamarine earrings to match my top, courtesy of MrsDrWho.
- Hand-knitted As Dreams Are Made On cardigan.
Sometimes there can be a bit of a traffic jam in the creek. Two enthusiastic Labradors don't look before they leap and so they both end up in the same place at the same time: Gilly going and Peri arriving.
Well that's it, short and sweet, since I have a dress to cut out and some sewing to do. I am sorry to disappoint people who really liked the fabric with the spots/dots I have been using for toiles. It is a $10 doona cover from KMart. 8 metres of fabric for $10, so it was a bargain. It is not very nice fabric to wear though and I have drawn all over it in permanent marker. I still have some left for my next trial run!!
And now I am going to have a nap, just for an hour or so, as I need all my wits about me to sew a Sorbetto top and self-drafted skirt pattern together to make a dress!!
