How has your fall been going (or spring if you’re on the other half of the earth)? Have you been able to work your way through the style changes of the season?
If you’re having a hard time, and feel like you want something quick and easy to sew that will give your wardrobe a boost – then I can highly recommend the Ogden Cami!
It was pretty great for styling this week!
Looking through my wardrobe I realized that I have absolutely no spaghetti strap tank tops- I have some sleeveless tops, but no tank tops- not one- isn’t that crazy? I guess they had all worn out, and in my complete avoidance of shopping I’d never replaced them. But now I’m happy to say that I’ve replaced them without shopping (except in my stash!)
It’s time for another addition to my wardrobe 🙂 And this one was something I definitely wanted to check off my list, because I think it will be perfect for my fall/winter wardrobe and it hits so many of my style words! And that of course is a wrap dress!
I made this using the Ultimate Wrap Dress pattern from Sew Over It.
So after a lot more pacing in my room, trying on what felt like everything I owned, and a little more laying on my floor staring at my ceiling, I managed to make 10 outfits that I love!!
I have to say that once you get into it, and you get a little more familiar with all of your clothes, it gets easier 🙂
In case you’re just reading this week all my outfits are being styled with my Mabel skirts from Colette
After last week I definitely needed a little time away from my closet, and to recharge in front of my sewing machine, think about everything and process a little more. Firstly thanks so much for all of your amazing comments! You guys are the best! You gave me so much encouragement, great ideas, tips and support! And I promise I’m still going to plough on, even if it’s a challenge 🙂
But this week I wanted to make something that was an easy project, something that I thought would have an immediate big impact on my wardrobe and would go with EVERYTHING. The one from the list that really stood out was a simple knit skirt. So I did a little browsing and I found my perfect simple pattern – the Mabel from Colette.
