After one month of wearing at least one self-stitched garment each day, I look back and wonder: What have I learnt?
There is no question in mind that these challenge are a learning experience. You learn a lot about your wardrobe and your style. My specific lessons are:
I spent the majority of the time wearing self-stitched bottoms. I need more tops to match, otherwise I can never really expand my me-made wardrobe. Sure I can fill it with skirts and pants, but I want to make tops as well. Some dresses would be nice to. So, on my to-do list for fall I have one everyday dress and two blouses/shirts.
I don’t have a lot of lounge wear so the days spent at home are not often in me-mades. If that matters. I have bought a sweatshirt fabric to make myself a jacket and the kiddo some pants.
This is not necessarily a new point from Self-Stitched September, but I want to make more clothes for more fancy occasions. The only problem is that those occasions don’t come around too often, so I shouldn’t make too many. But I like to dress and I should seize the opportunities whenever I can in my me-made party wear.
As with Me-Made June, I’m sticking with making neutrals, clothes that I can match, having a plan for each project.
I can’t wait to expand my me-made wardrobe!
