SSS 27 and 28

Well, dear fellow SSS bloggers, I’m sad to say I bailed on Monday again.  It’s just a crappy kind of chore day to be dressing in anything I own that’s self-stitched.  That said, I’ve really noticed how RTW my wardrobe is for the casual day-to-day SAHM and volunteer-in-your-kid’s-school life I lead.

The only thing self-made that I wore were those beautiful purple earrings from my dear friend Lisa…. 😐

Day 28:

SSS Day 28 – Burda 9-2010-111b top and Gap jeans

I just put on my BurdaStyle top and my Gap jeans.  I think I need to make a pair of SS jeans or corduroys or SOMETHING that’s casual.  I’ve made several pairs of pants in my pre-blogging days, but they’re all fully lined dress pants, and they just don’t suit my SAHM volunteer-at-my-kids-school kind of everyday life.  I mean, can you imagine tripping around in stilettos through a public school hall to read with kids twice a week?  I guess that’s why I like summer:  it’s just so easy to throw on a dress and be done with it!  Fall dressing has always been a bit of a conundrum for me.  One day it’s hot, the next it’s drizzly and freezing and yet it’s too cold for summer stuff and too warm for real winter clothes.  This SSS project has really got me thinking about my fall wardrobe, how to make it work, and what’s missing in it.  But more on that later……

  1. I found your blog on Pattern Review and I will read it regularly now. I like it very much.Maybe you like to visit my blog as well.
    The Burda-shirt is really nice and is also on my to-do list.

  2. Hi, thanks for your comment!
    I really like the wrap top you’re wearing here. It looks real flattering and the fabric is a lovely print. Are those ties on the sleeves, or decorative? They add a nice touch of bohemian-y interest.
    I like your idea of making Vogue 1087 in all different colours, fabulous! I look forward to seeing what you make next!
