I'm beginning to run out of steam, so this week might have been the last hurrah. But I will continue to try to be innovative for the upcoming week pour finir en beauté. At the very least, the Me-Made Challenges always force me to try new combinations - just to finish out the month!
Monday was a holiday so no work clothes and I don't remember what I wore! It must have been something fairly blah because I didn't take a photo. So I'm picking back up the challenge on Tuesday the 24th.
The cold spell continues and I wanted to document one of my jackets (an important part of one's outfit!), so here it is:
This is a vintage jacket passed down to me and I've been enjoying it, despite the fact that it's filthy and needs a good dry cleaning. The me-made parts are the Diagonal Lace Scarf and the shirt is Simplicity 3842 .
On Wednesday I wore my Renfrew top again, and a cat:
On Thursday, a new cardigan I made using McCall's 6084. I'm not overly thrilled with this creation, unfortunately. Most of the combinations I came up with make me look like an American football player. This one isn't too bad. When I wear a dark color on the bottom it is horrible though!
This is described as a One-Hour Cardigan. That was definitely not the case for me - more like a One-Day cardigan! By the end I just wanted to finish it, so my sleeve cuffs are sloppy and I didn't hem the sides or the interior. The fabric was kind of a bitch to work with, super thin! Perhaps I'll take more photos to show it off or perhaps not, depending on the love I feel for it...
And then yesterday I again wore my Renaissance Basket Cardigan, this time with my New Look 6870 top. I'm pretty sick of this cardigan by now plus it has tons of cat hair on it!
Today we're spending the afternoon going to a Balboa workshop and a fast Lindy workshop, so I'll be dressed in something comfortable and pretty sloppy, but I'll endeavor to take a picture nonetheless! ;)
