Self-Stitched-September: Days Four & Five

September 4, 2011

Blouse: Colette Sorbetto variation
Cardigan: Talbots
Jeans: Talbots
Shoes: Antonio Melani
Opinion: Meh. I was only hanging around the house and running errands yesterday, so this was a pretty bland outfit. I do love this blouse, but I wish I had the right skirt to pair with it. I'm thinking a high-waisted khaki pencil skirt would be just right. As it was, I wore some skinny jeans and called it a day.

Dress: Simplicity 2591, (pattern blogged here)
Shoes: Clarks Fiddle Scroll
Opinion: I love this dress. I love this pattern. I love this awesome vintage fabric my mother gave me. A lot of people don't seem to wear the first item they sew, but I'm addicted to mine. The workmanship isn't the best, but it's still very cute. Also, these are the most comfortable shoes ever. I swear, I've almost exclusively worn Clarks wedges this summer. They had such a cute line and they're all a dream to walk in.


  1. Adorable! I love the paisley dress so much. I don't even know what the first thing I sewed was... Whatever it was I'm sure it was hideous. I made such awful stuff when I first started that I have no idea how I ever persevered.

  2. That dress is seriously cute! :) The first item I ever sewed was a petticoat, that I do occasionally wear.

  3. That's amazing you have the first thing you sewn. I think mine was a ugly purple shirt. The dress is too cute!
