Last Post for Self-Stitched September 2011

So I completed my SSS11 challenge and manage to wear a different self-stitched item every day for the month of September. It was a good challenge as I now know that I rely on a few key pieces of clothing to keep in heavy wear-rotation.

Here is the breakdown for this last week going clockwise:

* New Look 6823 knit dress
* Butterick 5627 snake print Lanvin knock-off dress (with purchased cardigan)
* Simplicity 2315 skirt and February Lady Sweater in Cascade 220 yarn
* Buterick 5614 stretch cotton pants (with store bought button down shirt)
* Zephyr's Wicked sweater in soy silk yarn ( with store bought pants)

That's all I have for now. The Butterick pants are a new creation. I like them, but they already feel a bit loose. I have a feeling that I'm always a bit heavier or bloated in the evening when I sew. Everything fits perfectly at night and then hangs a bit looser in the morning when I'm dressed for work. lol

Have a fabulous weekend everyone!
