'I, Reethi, sign up as a participant of Self-Stitched-September. I endeavor to wear only handmade and refashioned items of clothing every day for the duration of September 2010'.
Yes, dear Readers, I am officially insane.
Ok, let's add some guidelines, shall we?
- Just like the last time, I'm officially excluding outer-wear. Tail end of September in Toronto? Nope, my sheer cardigans won't quite cut it.
- Also just like last time, I'm officially allowing myself 3 freebies - days that I can wear RTW. (On the off-chance something at work will crop up that I'll have to wear a suit to.)
For the record, I sat on the fence about Self-Stitched September for months. Yes, I had a total blast in May, but then again, I've done a huge wardrobe purge since then, getting rid of the things I'm not thrilled about, etc. As a result, I'm afraid that every one of my outfits will look home-made and/or did-she-dress-in-the-dark?
But then I remembered, Me-Made-May really helped me sew in a more coordinated way, think more creatively about outfits, and had a wonderful community feel to it, and really, there was no way to sit this one out.
So yeah, I'm in!
