It’s over – and I went the whole month and wore one new thing each day. Didn’t think it was possible, and I had to get kooky to do it, but I succeed. High five!
So what did I learn?
- I like how my hair looks in a ponytail better than anything else. Failing that, I should brush my hair more.
- I need to sew more tops and trousers – dresses are lovely, but it can get a bit much wearing them every day
- I should get kookier – some of my favourite outfits were a bit out there. Also, having lots of interesting coloured tights is cool.
So what did I wear for the last week of the challenge?
Sunday: blue short trousers. Not worn often (no pockets!). They were meant to be trousers, but were too short. Based on the same trousers pattern as Tuesday
Monday: Blue and white flower dress. Modified from Vogue 8382
Tuesday: Silk matchka trousers, Claire Schaeffer Custom Couture collection, Vogue 7881
Wednesday: brown gabardine shorts. I was going to wear this earlier in the month, but thought it didn’t quite work. But I got over that and actually it was one of my favourite outfits.
Thursday: cowl top, finished last weekend, from Butterick B4132. I made a size 18 because I thought the armholes weren’t big enough. Probably should have made the usual size 16.
