Tag Archives: Self-Stitched Wardrobe

And so it begins…

Taking my cue from Tasia, I’m going to start my Self-Stitched September with a wardrobe roundup. Why? Why not.

For a recap, I had originally signed up for the Lite version (one self-stitched item per day) but as I have pretty much been doing that for the last month (yay!) I figured I will try and step it up a bit. I am going to start off with SSS Blitz Week: “Main clothing items” self-stitched every day. Sadly this can’t include toppers as I never did get the fabric to make one (yet) except for the poor, maybe-salvageable ┬ájacket.

Now, I will be honest with you. Much as I adore clothes and style, my wardrobe (at least the functional, everyday part of it) has always been limited. There’s been plenty of times when I’ve gotten by with two pairs of jeans and three or four shirts (ok, plus a few bumming-around/will do in a pinch items for at home on the weekends). By this standard, I should have no problem with a full Self-Stitched September. This is true.

When I look at the sheer number of pieces above, I’m fairly impressed. I could totally do the whole month. But…

are my colleagues/labmates going to start noticing the repetitive, odd clothing? Am I never going to want to wear any of it again? Are my self-stitched jeans going to fall apart under that much constant wear? Is it just gross to wear your jeans that many days in a row?

Well, we’ll see how I feel after this week.

Oh, and here’s today’s inaugural outfit:

And here’s what I will look like to most other people, all month, anyway, because I live in my hoodie:

What people see of what I wear most of the time anyway
