Rain, Rain, Go away: Day Eleven & Twelve

What I’ve learned so far from Self-Stitched September: it’s hard to get any decent photos when the weather looks like this!

The days are getting shorter, the evening daylight is gone before I know it, and it’s been rainy, rainy, rainy! Not only is it hard to get the photos done, but it’s also hard to be inspired when getting dressed. All I feel like wearing is a sweatshirt and jeans, and yet my closet is full of bright summery items. What’s a girl to do? Not give up, I suppose! So my photos are in the parking lot and indoors, anywhere I can find a dry patch and some light.

What I’m Wearing, Day 11:

  • Self-Stitched Skirt: Beignet by Colette Patterns, just finished last week!
  • Blouse: Silk, Club Monaco
  • Shoes: no idea, from my sister’s closet

Read more about the skirt here!

What I’m Wearing, Day 12:

  • Self-Stitched Vest: Simplicity 2556 in wool with bemberg lining
  • T-shirt: Club Monaco, same as this day
  • Jeans: Hudson, bought three years ago

See the vest in more outfits here!

I’m going to keep this post short, if you have any questions please leave me a comment, I can’t think of any witty Q&A today. Happy Monday everyone!

    oooh. that is definitely sweatshirt & jeans weather! And my favorite kind. We’re 91 degrees F today, with the promise of being in the 80’s the rest of the week. YAY! I do have a serious lack of sleeves, short or long, in my SSS wardrobe. I’m glad it’s still warm, but it’s making want to make some comfies for the upcoming cold weather!

    Next time can we see a pic of the back of the vest? Is the back the lining fabric? Do you have a little tie-thingy?
    I tried to find a pic of the back but couldn’t…
    Very nice BTW.

    Oh, sure! I’ll wear this vest again this month, I bet, and will try to remember a back-view picture.
    The back is self fabric not lining, there is not really a tie-thingy but between the princess panels there is a twisted piece of fabric where the tie would be. It’s just for fun and serves no purpose, it’s not adjustable. (Which would be helpful, if I were to make a vest again..)

    I love day 11 too. It’s raining here in Melbourne too if that makes you feel any better!

    These are great outfits Tasia. I love the vest. I really want to make one this season. Must put it at the top of my list.

    I felt like staying in my PJs too. It would have made for boring photos and breaking of Self-Stitched-September vows though.. so I toughed it out! :)
