Goodbye summer (for now), and HELLO Self Stitched September!

Alright, so this is officially the last day of summer. The day was fab, with sun, crisp air and the arrival of my new (old) shoes that are going to take me through autumn in style.

My new (old) shoes!

I bought these shoes from Here and There Vintage on Etsy, just five days ago, and today- there they were at my local post office. Now, that is what I call fast delivery!

My new (old) shoes!

I am pepped for the Self- Stitched September! I am going to wear as much self-stitched items as possible, and here you have my pledge:

‘I, Sølvi of delfinelise, sign up as a participant of Self-Stitched-September. I endeavor to wear only handmade and refashioned of clothing, except underwear, sportswear, shoes and rainwear, every day for the duration of September 2010.

I have made some exceptions, because I really don´t have anything really rain-proof (this is autumn, after all,) and I have not had the time (yet) to make sportswear and underwear.

The Summer Essential Sew-Along items will come in handy in the end of September, when I´m going to Greece, and I really hope I have enough self- made items to keep me warm until then…

I will, however, try to make some new autumn/winter appropriate things, both as part of the Hepburn Hepburn Project, and as I suspect I need some warmer stuff…

Let the games begin!
