Self-Stitched September Days 1, 2, 3, and 4

Alright, here we go! My first 'Self-Stitched' or daily journal of wearing only things that I've made.  I committed to wearing at least one item that I made each day in September.  Here are the first four days.


Day 1:

What I wore:

My Plaid Summer Dress!  I really don't know why I called it a summer dress as it's really an everyday staple, but I did make it in June.  Anyways, I digress.  I wear this dress quite a bit as it's perfect for work.  It's a good dress to kick off my self-stitched September challenge!

Day 2:

What I wore:

My Spring Stripes dress that I made back in April.  I actually haven't worn this dress since I made it as I was worried about looking like a candy striper.  It was a beautiful day in the Bay Area so I decided to go girl-y and wear it.  I actually received a lot of compliments on it throughout the day which re-invigorated my faith in the dress.  I'll definitely be wearing it again soon.

Day 3:

What I wore:

My first day of a week-end full of dance competitions.  I wore two outfits that I made back in the beginning of my sewing projects.  My Irish jig dress and Sailor's hornpipe outfit.  I was in the fairgrounds for most of the day so when I wasn't wearing my dance outfits, I was in my typical dance capris and workout wear.

Day 4:

What I wore:

Second day of dance competitions, however I didn't get to wear my Highland jacket that I just finished, so you'll have to wait for a picture of that one.  I spent most of the day in an aboyne costume, but when I wasn't, I was wearing my Summer Sails dress.

This dress is one of my favorites and also one of my most worn items.  It's perfect for a competition day because I can easily slip it over my head without messing with my hair and makeup.  I didn't wear it with anything exciting as I was constantly changing.


  1. I love the green striped dress. It goes well with your car too!

  2. I love the day 4 dress. Looks great.
