Self-Stitched-September: Day One

2 Sep

Alright here it goes:

[I promise I’m not really this fat in real life.]

Shirt: From T.J.Maxx  Skirt:  Simplicity 2258  Shoes:  Sugar

This is my first foray into the Self-Stitched or Me-Made month events.  I can’t promise I’ll do it everyday but what’s there to lose???  Taking pictures is hard enough around here.  I tried to explain [in Spanglish] that I wanted my feet at the bottom and my head at the top and a dozen pictures later. . . . nada.  So my dad took this one and this one it is!  Posing, flatterly, and red eye be damned.

I made this skirt from Simplicity 2258 back in February.  I haven’t blogged about it yet because I am lazy.  I am forever on a quest for a jean skirt.  This one is kinda meh.  I got the less than two yards of fabric from Joann’s on super clearance. I finished the seams with a hong kong finish.  I believe  I made this while watching Zoolander.   The problems are that it has an elastic waistband that is mommy-friendly but not so cool and it doesn’t have enough seams to be interesting.   The original pattern has a self fabric tie that covers up the hideous waistband but since my skirt is denim, it only made me look ‘fluffier’.   So it is worn around the house.

By the way, I’m over myself  [from the earlier post]

Ugh. In more recent developments, my son just peed himself all over his bed, stuffed animals, and into in his rainboots.  Shoot me.
