Wearing What I Make...

Do you ever make something that you really like and then never wear it? I made this jacket and skirt combo a couple years ago with a gray linen blend I bought from Fabric Mart. And then I promptly hung it in the closet. The jacket is Butterick 5223 and the skirt my first Patrones. The shell is Simplicity 2599 made with a poly satin print from Fabric.com. The shell got worn a couple times and the jacket maybe 2 or three times, but the poor skirt...Nada...no love. Now that I've worn it, I don't know why I waited so long! It was a very comfortable outfit to wear all day at work and with minimal wrinkling. The factory continues to crank out garments. I finished Burda Fashion 7/2010 #113 out of the brown tie dye jersey last night and although it is not something I could wear to work, it will be perfect for those hot August nights. I'm gearing up for Self Stitched September. I may not be able to post pictures everyday, but I think I have enough me made garments to carry me through the month. How about you?

Mea Culpa! I just downloaded the latest version of Picasa and it really made it easy to make the post around the picture! I promise to do more pics!

That is a great suit for you! You should wear it more, the skirt is nice on you because you have the height to pull it off and not looked chopped up with the horizontal lines.

That is a great outfit. I love it!

Self-stitched September? Does everything have to be made by you? I'm in a skirt and white tee shirt rut. Unfortunately, I buy all my white tees. g
