So my SSS11 (Self-Stitched September) challenge is going well so far. I am trying to not only wear one self-made piece every day, but also try not to duplicate an item during the month. For that reason, I have been adding a few new projects every week. I am still nursing and seem to be picking either separates to make or dresses that have a wrap or crossed neckline. Of course I do have a dress that I cut fabric for that will not be baby approved, but perfect for Mommy on her work trip to Florida next week. Here's to hoping I get to it before I leave on Tuesday.
I made another pair of pants. This time I tried a different pattern. I picked up New Look 6005 at Joann's last week. The fabric is a nice drapey, textural linen blend. I paired it with my first Butterick 5496 top that I made earlier this year. I really love how I looked in this outfit. I felt very modelesque.
Here is my second version of the Simplicity 2187 jumper dress. I added 4 inches to the length to make it more work appropriate. Since this is my second time making it this month, it went together fairly quickly. I had a good time making this one and enjoyed the way it is comfy, yet dressy. Another great work dress that can also do double duty for going out on the town. I have plans to make one more of these dresses. I will probably go down a size though. The first two I made were both a size 14, but I noticed that the second one felt a little loose, even though the fabric is similar. Hopefully the Weight-Watchers is working. lol. Stay tuned.
