Self Stitched September Wrap Up

Do y'all remember my pledge, made at the very last minute to participate in Self-Stitchted-September 2011? No? Well, let me refresh your memories. (Let me just confirm that no, I do not, nor have I ever, lived in the south of America. But, I did live with a lovely Texan girl for a year when I went on exchange a few years back, and picked up y'all from her.)

Here's my pledge once more:

'I, fyre fairee, sign up as a participant of Self-Stitched-Sept '11. I endeavour to make at least 6 clothing items, and wear them in September, as well as wearing an additional two self-stitched garments each week for the duration of September 2011'

In other words, I need to wear 8 existing self stitched items, and sew an additional 6. I did okay with the challenge, although for the first two weeks I kept forgetting that I was meant to be wearing extra outfits AND should be photographing them.

I actually managed to sew 9 new items, and wore 7 other items, so I managed to exceed the 14 I wanted for the month.

So, let's break it down.

  1. What a lovely collection!

    My favourites are both red! The Day after dress and the red lace one. Both beautiful colours and lovely shapes.
