Self Stitched September (SSS) Day 1

Outfit for Day 1: Burda blouse (white and silver) with shirred waist, Burda straight black wool pants and Kwik Sew metallic cardi.

Plans: School drop-off, buy some zippers, home to sew, and regular chores like washing and dishes.

Thoughts: A little dressier than I would normally wear for sewing and chores, but I wanted to start off the month with a bang rather than a fizzle. I will have to change this arvo as I have a personal training session at work.

Here is the first garment finished this month.

Burda gored skirt, like my jade version, again with godets. I actually made the godets a little longer this time, and added them at the side seams.
Fabric is a rayon polyester faille ( I think). It has been in the stash since my uni days, so I have to set up my old computer to look up my fabric stash record if I wanted to properly identify it exactly.
I love twirly skirts.


  1. Love that twirly shot Marie! :)

    Very nice skirt and top!

  2. oh Marie, you are truly amazing. I love both outfits they are just wonderful. I love the twirly shot too.
    Is Jalisa going to school now? Did the home schooling not work for you? Hope you are well.

  3. Look at those leg muscles! Personal training must be working! LOL. Great sewing, by the way.

  4. Hi Andrea - can't find your email so I hope you see this.

    Long story short, we ended up sending Jalisa to the local primary school after all (enrolled the day before school started back).

    She is going well and I think it ened up being the best for us. I think I would be burnt out with trying to work and educate her.

  5. Both outfits are great! I love the skirt.

  6. Both outfits are great! I love the skirt.
