Self-Stitched-September Day Two


I have, on day two, already run into a slight problem. Usually I wear an old pair of jeans and a hoody while dying my hair but when I went to dye my regrowth yesterday I realised I didn't have any 'old' clothes that I have made. I wasn't willing to wait until the month was over to get rid of my roots so that's how I found myself dying my hair in my self-made pyjamas. Miraculously, I managed to keep them free of dye.
After that slight hiccup I changed into my grey wool dress, made from the bodice of Butterick 5032 and a self-drafted skirt. Obviously I am on a purple kick at the moment. In the last three posts I've done I've been wearing purple.
The belt is the sash from another dress I made.
I tried doing a 40s style headscarf to cover my wet hair but I ended up looking more like a washer woman than Rosie the Riveter. It's strangely appropriate given I spent the day doing washing and other mundane jobs.


  1. Gosh you're good! I always throw dye over everything! I do love youu outfit..the DM's set it off just right!!xx

  2. Your head scarf looks ok to me =) not washer-womanish at all. I have award for you in my blog.

  3. I think I have those DMs... comfortable as a glove.

  4. You okay after the quakes? Pup and I are fine, a bit of damage but nothing major. Let me know if I can help in ANY way.
