‘I, Headmistress of the Nebula Classical Academy, sign up as a participant of Self-Stitched-Sept ’11. I endeavour to wear three handmade items each week for the duration of September 2011’
Phew! I am going to do this. I have watched for a year now as all the refashion/sewing bloggers I follow join in on the fun, while I sat on the sidelines pouting and lamenting my lack of hand-made items. Not this time!
It will be a little tricky, however. I have 2 shirts, one pair of pants and one skirt in wearable condition that I can employ, but only the shirts are appropriate for work attire, and wearing them each once a week will get old fast! To that end, I plan to expand my items to include the two necklaces I have made for myself, and to hurry on up and finish the shrug. I may, during September itself, have time to do up a denim skirt from Papa Sun’s old jeans, and maybe even finish off a fabric scrap or two into a scarf.
My reasons for joining this time around are three-fold: to encourage me to wear my refashioned wrap skirt, to be a little more adventurous when it comes to style, and to step up the pace with my refashion goals. Most participants are going for wearing an item a day, but clearly I haven’t got that many items, and no way do I have enough time or energy to make enough to hit such a lofty goal. So three items a week it is!
