Zoe, from “So Zo…” has been the initiator of several sewing-related projects, like Stashbustin’, “Me-Made-March”, and “Me-Made-May”. For the latter projects, she pledged to wear only “me-made” clothing for the months of March and May, and had a community of sewers and seamstresses alongside her, wearing their own homemade garments exclusively or partially, every day, for an entire month.
The next project coming up is “Self-Stitched-September”, and this time, I’m playing along. I snapped some quick pictures of what I have to work with, and this is it:
I’ve pledged that ‘I, indigorchid (www.indigorchid.wordpress.com), sign up as a participant of Self-Stitched-September. I endeavour to wear handmade and/or refashioned items of clothing every day for the duration of September 2010’. The important thing to me isn’t, and won’t be, to wear *only* self-stitched things in an outfit. I do want to push myself though, and consider the self-stitched garments as the main part of my outfit – the piece I start out with. I also want to make sure I wear every single of these garments at least once during the month of September.
I actually have a couple of more things available to wear, since I’ve finished my boat dress, and a nearly finished Marie-skirt. I’m quite excited for the month of September, and of course I’ll post here on how I’m doing!
P.S. I made a little widget in the sidebar that will pull up all of my Self-Stitched-September posts. As you can see, there are a couple of new projects in the works! (That also means that some of the links don’t lead anywhere – yet!) Also, see the blogroll on the right hand side for the link to Zoe’s original call to self-stitchedness.
