SSS '11 round up
Tuesday, 9/6, wore the newest top I made myself. I have still not written the review for it, but I used Butterick 5355. I love this top but I am going to have to make a different belt for it. The chiffon just does not stay tightly tied very well.
Wednesday, 9/7, wore another top that I had never photographed. This was made using my TNT pattern Simplicity 2603. This pattern is a quick and easy basic. It works great under any jacket or cardigan.
Saturday. I even have 1.5 yards of this fabric still in my stash but I figured two tops in it in my current wardrobe is plenty. If you have not tried this pattern yet I highly recommend it. It is very unique and not like much of the RTW I have ever seen in my area.
Saturday, 9/10, I wore a red top I made using McCall's 5436. I made this just over 4 years ago. Up close it is looking a little rough as it use to have a silver paisley design on it that has since faded. Yesterday was a very laid back day so I figured I could get by with it.
This is only the second week of SSS '11 and I have realized that I really only make myself tops. I do have skirts and dresses, but they are not all to casual. In fact all of the skirts I have made are business attire or dressy. I do not make myself pants other than for pajamas and I don't know why not. I know my style is pretty much jeans and a cute top, but really? This needs to change!!! I always admire stylish women who wear skirts and dresses regularly and not just for their jobs. I want to be one of those women. I am going to have to reevaluate my FESA '11 plan because I know that I do not have a single skirt or dress in it.
