Self-Stitched-September: Day One

Hello again, friends! Wow, I've done a lot of blogging this week. With Self-Stitched-September kicking off, it is only going to get worse, I'm afraid. After this season, y'all may be absolutely sick of seeing my face. For today's outfit post, I at least varied the background a bit. Trying to find a well-lit, but simple place in my house to take pictures is proving difficult.

Today, I wore an unblogged dress. It's another Simplicity 2591 I whipped up last month, made in a plum-and-cream retro quilting cotton I bought from The Stitch Lab last year. Since then, I've developed a bit of a fabric snob streak and haven't known what to do with this yardage. Enter my trusty 2591! While this isn't my favorite dress, it's still a lovely shape and the fabric is pretty cute. Best of all, it's maroon! On game days, I can wear this dress and not feel like a bad Aggie. Always a plus.


Dress: Simplicity 2591
Belt: Ralph Lauren
Shoes: Clarks Fiddle Bow (of course - I love them)
