SSS '11: Days 4, 5 & 6

Day 4:

Don't be getting no ideas about my desert now, ok?!

I promise you it's the insane wind that's making my hair look all crazified.

What I wore:

Me-made yellow jacket, black sailor trousers, black T-shirt and pants. Cardigan was thifted.


Per-ritty dull outfit, IMO, but it was a Sunday spent going for a long walk on a windy day, so who cares particularly? And that desert was out of this world, BTW.

Day 5:

What I wore:

Me-made denim sailor trousers, bustier-line T-shirt, Saint cardigan and pants. Me-made yellow jacket was worn to and from work.


Rainy Monday morning, bad nights sleep and a massive headache all day. Basically you are really lucky I'm not still in my jam jams.

Day 6:

What I wore:

Me-made denim skirt, long-sleeved leopard top, vest and pants. Me-made leopard coat was worn to and from work (in the rain both ways, may I add).


Ok, so the weather today was worse than yesterday, but I felt a skirt day was due. I really could alternate between my denim sailor trousers and my black sailor trousers for the entire month if left to my own devices, but I know that wearing this skirt today made me feel nicer than if I hadn't done. That's one of the reasons why these challenges are good for me.

I know how you feel about your pants - I end up wearing the same couple pair over and over again if not forced to delve into my skirts. I always love them after I put them on, so I don't know why they stay buried so often. I love your sailor trousers though!

I love the yellow jacket and the dessert looks really good. I understand the pants thing too, at least for fall/winter. I live in them, it may be time for sewing a pair of pants. I don't have any self stitched clothing for fall or winter, except one plaid dress. Next year I am planning on joining you for MMSept! You look great!

I adore your yellow jacket and have secret plans to copy it slavishly for myself. And I promise not to get any ideas about your desert but I make no promises regarding your dessert! :)
Love your little navy blue skirt too, it looks like a very useful little thing.
Thank you so much again for organising Self-Stitched September, and all the previous challenges! It's the coolest thing in sewing blogland!
