Self Stitched September

I think I've got the sewing mojo back again, spurred on by the fact I have a dress to complete by 8th July for a works award evening where the dress code is smart for a BBQ?   Naturally as I sew I am expected to produce my own outfit.  I have chosen a 50's style Burda download that no longer seems to be on their site but I've made it before with many changes.  This time it will be as the original, in a black with small pink embroidered flowers that just happen to be the shade as a linen jacket I made two years ago.  Can't find the line drawing right now to show you!
 Self Stitched September   has found it's way to my reading list & I've decided to commit myself - I make my own undies anyway so I automatically wear one item of me made clothing everyday anyway!!  Finances are hellish tight but I had budgeted £30 for fabric for the above dress & got 3 lots & lining for less than that amount so I've got a start, all of it's destined for dresses but one might be a jacket!  The reason for dresses is that I'm hoping to get some promotion that may involve wearing something other than a uniform & I need to be prepared!!  Well I can live in hope.
I wish I could work out how to add the logo for this challenge.  When I do, I'll add it.

Getting kind of fed up of having to reject spam type comments

So I am!  Go find something better to do, lifes too short to spend it trying to irritate others, get on with living & making the most of the time you have on this planet, you'll find it more worthwhile.
