Self-Stitched September: Day Twenty-three

One more week of outfits to go! I keep reaching for the same items over and over, and today’s no exception. Love this skirt! The buttonholes were daunting, but I’m so glad I finally finished it!

What I’m Wearing, Day 23:

  • Self-Stitched Skirt: Beignet by Colette Patterns, in wool with bemberg lining
  • Shoes: Nine West, bought Boxing Day 2009.
  • Sweater: Gap, also worn in this outfit
  • Scarf: from my sister’s closet

See the skirt in more outfits here! (Wow, I’ve already worn this skirt 4 times this month.)

Keeping it short and sweet today. It’s a busy weekend for me: birthday party, volunteering, family dinner, and of course, sewing!

Happy sewing and have a fantastic weekend everyone!

    Hi – I have been really enjoying your SSS posts – you always look fabulous! I’m a Beignet fan (only made one so far). Don’t you find it fits as beautifully as it looks?

    I really like this outfit, esp. the shoes (as usual). I love your blog and always check out your new outfits and projects. I just finished my first dress this week! I’m so excited to try out more projects. Check it out at

    I wouldn’t worry too much about repetition. I certainly don’t have enough self made clothes to go for a month, but I find I have favourites that I turn to over and over again and quite a few of them are self stitched. My advantage is that my work week is split between my employer for one day and one client on Tues/Wed and another client (who has 3 offices I visit) Thurs/Fri. End result is that I could wear the same outfit 3 or 4 times in a week and no one would be the wiser, but I really try to avoid wearing the same thing multiple Tues/Wed for example in a row.

    I think it’s lovely you’ve had a few ways to wear the beignet skirt, it’s really flattering and it shows how versitile a piece it is.

    You know, I think you should stop posting about this skirt because I’m getting to the point where I think I need to purchase this pattern and make one for myself. If I do I will have no one to blame but YOU for something so awesome in my wardrobe. If it doesn’t look as great on me as it does you I’ll be ticked though. ;)

    This is really convincing me that I need to make a Beignet skirt of my own! I’m doing the same thing – both my Marie-skirts are getting lots of wear. And, as Cathy mentioned, since I have classes at school I try to avoid repeating outfits the same day of the week!

    I’ve only just noticed how gorgeous those buttons are! It is a great skirt that you should wear as often as you like. I wouldn’t worry about repetition at all!

    That dress is so cute you could wear it 24 days this month and I don’t think anyone would mind!
