The Self-Made Wardrobe Week 4

The Self-Made Wardrobe is a project where I only wear garments I’ve made, for one year.
You can read more about the project here.


It’s the end of Week 4 of The Self-Made Wardrobe, and on Sunday it’ll be the true end of Month 1.

1 month down, just 11 months to go…

Fall is definitely in the air, and I’m both excited and petrified.

Last weekend (Days 22 & 23) I went up to my parent’s house, they live up in New England, and it was chilly. Just in case I needed a reminder to sit my ass at that sewing machine.

I wore the jersey dress I mentioned in last week’s post, and loved it. It was wonderfully comfortable for the train ride up and back. Plus I got tons of complements on it – and who doesn’t love that.

The days are still beautiful, and I can (obviously) still wear my summer uniform of skirts & tank tops, but one morning it’ll be fall, and there will be no going back.

Thankfully the sweater I’m working on is gaining sleeves quite quickly.

I have one or two more skirts planned, and then I really must put a moratorium on making skirts, because this is getting ridiculous.

Onwards to fall!

See you in September.
