I was determined to make today's Self-Stitched September emsemble consist of solids only. This is tougher than it sounds, because almost all of my self-made skirts are prints, and I've made such a limited number of tops.
The pattern is Simplicity 4589, and I sewed it way back on Easter day, 2007. This was the first garment I ever sewed! My mom was always happy to sew anything I asked for, but I decided it was time for me to learn. Whenever I attempted to learn in the past, she would get impatient with me and take over, so I asked her to please let me do it, no matter how painful it was to watch!
The weather here is still pretty warm, so cap sleeves were fine, but I thought the colors pulled the outfit into fall.
