I’ve been on holiday so my photos are a bit late and I still haven’t worked out how to add the Self Stitched September button to this site. I hope to do it before the month ends. Meantime see http://sozowhatdoyouknow.blogspot.com for more details.
Paddling at Camber Sands
Blouse from Vogue 2634 in blue & white check cotton. Tucks added to shape.
Skirt is New Look 6843 lengthened quite a bit in heavy ticking.
The bag is my own design made of tweed, felted wool and artificial suede. The individual blocks were based on photographs of my horse.
2nd September Still on Holiday
Just the blouse this time. New Look 6598.
3rd September Still on Holiday
That blouse pattern again! Blue & white spotted version of Vogue 2634. Random patchwork bag made quite a few years ago from offcuts & the good bits of my old clothes.
4th September About to go Home
Another version of New Look 6598. I made savage changes to the fit of this – it was very baggy around the arm holes.
5th September In the Garden
About to take Gus for a walk.
Blue flowered version of Vogue 2634 & my dog walking bag made from the leg of an old pair of jeans – holds treats, bags, my keys & so on. The pockets are very useful.
I think most of my self stitched wardrobe consists of blouses & bags. I must look for something else to wear – but the sleeveless blouses are so useful I just keep making them – especially Vogue 2634.
