It’s almost not worth it anymore to write a September review as October has almost come to an end as well and the next review will follow soon. However, September has been a really great month and deserves its own review. After watching the many great results of the Spring Style Sew-Along of Mama macht Sachen, I just had to join her Working Girl Sew-Along, if you click on the picture, you can see my plans. At the beginning of September, I finished my pleated skirt with large gingham, which I really love. Unfortunately, the pattern of Burda did not contain a shaped waistband and so I had to create it myself, you can find here my tutorial for this. The lace skirt in midi length was my first piece from my Working Girl collection and I created the pattern myself for it, you can read all about it here. Over at Instagram, I have shown you my plans for culottes with windowpane, which are finished by now and I have already worn here and here.
My me-made outfits in September ranged from summery to autumnal, click on the image to get to the original post. The photos in front of the lighthouse were taken at the Outer Banks in North Carolina, where it still had more than 30°C. The autumn photos on the other hand were taken in Bamberg.
At the beginning of September, I enjoyed a great time at my sister’s place in North Carolina. The trip to the Outer Banks was on absolute highlight of my vacation, you should really visit these islands when you get the chance. A souvenir from the US has been the infamous September issues. Another highlight of September has been the mention of my blog in the German issue of Burda Easy. I’ve been sewing a lot of black and white garments lately and thus I dearly needed a replenishment 🙂

- Nadine von Nadelbernds Nähkästchen schreibt immer sehr interessante Monatsrückblicke gespickt mit vielen interessanten Links. So bin ich auf diese Liste an lesenswerten französischen Nähblogs bei La Couseuse gestoßen und auf die interessante Überlegung von Tuttis Welt darüber, was ein Kleidungsstück zum Lieblingsstück macht.
- Der Spiegel hat einen Artikel über das Billig-Shopping bei Primark und Co. geschrieben und über das Paradox, dass viele sich Gedanken über biofaire Lebensmittel macht, bei Kleidung aber das Gehirn ausgeschaltet wird.
