Today I’m wearing two handmade items, not just one! The vest you might remember from Me-Made-May, and the skirt was made by my sister. She gave it away as she wasn’t happy about how it turned out. Her loss, my gain!
- Self-Stitched Vest: Simplicity 2556 in wool with bemberg lining
- Tee shirt: Club Monaco
- Skirt: White cotton eyelet made by my sister, McCalls 5631 (shortened to a mini-skirt)
- Shoes: H&M

Q. What’s the best part of today’s outfit?
A. I think it’s really flattering – after looking at so many photos of yourself, it’s easy to tell what you like on yourself and what you don’t. The vest gives the upper body shape, while the skirt is flouncy and flirty and hides thighs. Success!
Q. Where did you go today in your Self-Stitched outfit?
A. To get my hair cut, run errands and grocery shop, make a quick stop at Fabricana, and spend time with Mr. Sewaholic. (My hairdresser’s comment was that my haircut suited my outfit!)
Q. Did you buy anything at Fabricana?
A. Just some thread, zippers and a marking pen. Nothing too exciting!
