Self-Stitched September

Since Spring of 2008 (just over two years ago), it's been my goal to sew my entire wardrobe, and I haven't purchased myself any clothing since then (except socks and a pair of winter gloves). In May, I noticed that Zoe had a nice following of fellow stitchers trying to wear only or at least one self-made item each day for the entire month. Well, for all those who missed out, she's doing it again for September. I've been stitching up basics this summer - far fewer than I intended, of course. It's my goal to wear only self-stitched items for the month of September (except socks and probably underpinnings.)

Today I laid out my wardrobe:
22 tops
6 pairs of pants (trousers)
2 pairs of shorts
1 pair of capri pants
2 dresses
2 skirts
2 pajama shirts
1 pair pajama pants
1 pair of undies
1 fleece jacket

A large variety of tops, including a camisole, t-shirts, and a new cardigan.

The pants including a pair of black yoga pants.

Shorts and capri pants.



The pajamas.

The lone undie.

Fleece Jacket.
I hope to make at least a jacket and a coat, pajamas bottoms and more underwear in September. And then more of everything else (:


  1. Way to get ready and organized! Will you be posting your outfit each day? I am going to enjoy seeing everyone's creations.

  2. Ack. You people and your productivity. It's so depressing.

    That is a very cool list of stuff (including the lone pair of undies, which made me laugh). Can't wait to see photos. I hope you'll post up what you wear each day, like KidMD did in Me Made May. Very fun to see!

  3. What a great wardrobe you've sewn (though like Beangirl, I was having a bit of a chuckle at the lone undie!). Look forward to seeing your self-made September.


Sorry to add word verification. Too much spam lately....
