Somewhere along the way I neglected to blog my Self Stitched September efforts from September 18. And looky there - it's half an hour away from September 29.
So, September 18. Uh. Seems I was so busy making the Not Sorbetto tea dress that day that I forgot to take a photo. I was definitely wearing a me-made skirt though. Promise.
September 19 - a jolly 26 degrees forecast for today! Time for the summer gear! This time I've made both the skirt and the top.
September 20 - this might have been the day when I hated all my clothes, hated being photographed every morning and hated the world in general. No photo, nothing me-made. Move along now.
September 21 - By the special scowl I'd say I'm starting to really hate that early morning sun. Cooler day, so the tights collection doesn't get packed away for the season after all. Skirt is the usual me-made favourite.
September 22 - Note to self. Just because it's going to be 22 degrees today doesn't mean it's OK to stand outside when it's still only 2 degrees without a coat. Me-made skirt.
September 23 - Since entering my 40s, I've stopped worrying about what others think of me. This includes whether they think I'm a complete loon for wearing stripes on stripes. Me-made crocheted cardi, me-made zipper brooch and me-refashioned leggings (they were tights).
September 24 - I was going to stay home all day and sew but ended up going to a rental open house for an interstate friend. This photo was taken after I'd had 2 coffees and a chai. I'm all about the caffeine this afternoon. Me-made cardigan, same as yesterday, and me-made kanzashi brooch.
September 25 (have you fallen asleep yet? I have). This is the tea dress. I love this dress. This is actually what I wore today, to high tea.
September 26 - my last day of being 41 years old and dammit I was going to wear orange and I didn't care who hated it. Because I freaking loved it. Hated the me-made skirt though - it kept falling down and I really need to fix it.
September 27 - I'm protesting the fact my birthday didn't fall on a public holiday this year by wearing something truly pretty to work. Me-made frock.
September 28 - now I'm 42 years (and one day) old, I care even less about what people think of me. Mixing stripes and plaid? BRING IT ON.
So two days to go for Self Stitched September. TWO!
A kid who might one day be able to go completely Aunty Chelle-made is my youngest nephew, who turns one on Friday. I bought some plain tees and sewed some patches on them. Took me 40 minutes and a whole lot of love.
