Self Stitched September 8

September 8

Thanks for the comments re improving yesterday's outfit. I need all the help I can get!
Although I agree with yesterday's advice concerning the lack of colour in my clothes, today, I am no more colourful. Despite this, I like today's outfit, and have worn this dress frequently over the past 3 winters.

This is the dress from wardrobe pattern Vogue 8305, made in 2008. The fabric is a very fine and thin wool jersey. I have reviewed the pattern here, and have also made the top from the same pattern, which I like just as much as this dress.

I was cold this morning, and thought I could get one more wear of the dress this season, but at 3 in the afternoon, I am wishing I had worn something a little less warm, so it is time to pack this away until next winter. What a pity. Dresses are so easy to wear.

Ha, you must live near me. It was cold this morning and warm this afternoon.

Dress looks great.

You must live on the other side of the world from me! We're JUST getting into Fall here.
LOVE the dress!

This time of year is all about layers. Start off in winter and end the day in summer.
