Days 3, 4 & 5

Phew! Its already day six!
Here are the outfits from days 3, 4 & 5, Don't get excited, I have been quite uncreative so far with SSS but have a couple of fun tops on the go to make things a bit prettier around her. But damn this work skirt is messing things up! And so is the cold weather.... I need too many layers

So on to Day 3:

And what a terrible bunchy, wrinkly photo it is...
And yes, this top IS as ill fitting in real life. This was one of my first projects ever, using Simplicity 1127
 (I have made 2 more since in the sleeveless version with bows... They fit though! Such an easy pattern)
But here you have it. Again after work, in new shoes!

Day 4:

Weekend!!! Wooo. What to wear Saab shopping?
A pretty sleeveless blouse, using Simplicity 2593.
This is made from a grey, pink & creamy/mushroomy (mushroomy?) coloured Silk.
I made it for the trip to Darwin and it worked a treat...
Ohhh what a dark and mysterious photo.... or was that just the flash not going off???
This top is comfy and will be handy in Summer :-)


And finally >>>

Day 5:

Same pattern again.... But in black Faille. This top goes with everything. And I mean everything!
Especially high waisted skirts and pants....
Check out the dodgy charming slouch happening in this shot haha
Posture Renay! Posture!!! 
Oh oh and The cushions.... Ten points if you can guess who made those...

And closer, so you can see the gathers and self made bias binding...

Thanks for listening peoples. And tomorrow..... I have the day off! to sew!
How is everybody going with Self Stitched September???
The Flickr Group is going off!
Have a good evening everyone, ciao now
