To start, the day before we left for our holiday (Christmas Eve) I did a big Christmas dinner for the friends we were going on holiday with as we were traveling on Christmas Day. Here I am wearing my Cadence sweater and self stitched apron.
Above is a friend and I on the beach in Mexico, with the Amy Butler Cosmo bags I sewed last summer. Great for the beach!
In the above photo, taken with one of our friends, I am wearing a denim halter neck top (old Burda pattern) and a self stitched gypsy skirt.
But I didn't get photos of everything. There was also the Jalie black jean that I travelled in as the stretch denim is comfy on a plane for hours! The Colette Sorbetto that I did stitch especially for the holidays and wore to the beach with shorts and although I took my Sewaholic Lonsdale with me, I didn't get to wear it unfortunately!
If I had thought before we left I could have probably done a full self stitched holiday, at least one item a day. I would also have had the foresight to ensure that I had good photos taken of me in each item!! But anyway, I am pleased that my self stitched items have become a part of my wardrobe without being planned!!
Oh and I also wore a necklace that I made a while ago.
