Thank you so much to Jane for hosting this year's OWOP, I have thoroughly enjoyed my week of wearing my NewLook 6808 blouses and I was so happy to make a new one which had been planned for so long. I do sometimes feel like I need a kick up the backside to get round to doing stuff!!
So, here are my photos (I'm sorry, they were all taken on my phone so they aren't great!):
Day 1: My Liberty top made with fabric I won in a giveaway but with the collar removed. I wear this top at least once a week anyway so I though I would start with it.
Day 2: The same top for a lazy Sunday dog walking, cleaning and mooching.
Day 3: My favourite top with my new skirt which I made in 15 minutes from conception to wearing the night before. I love it!!
Day 4: My silk/cotton confetti spot with a wine glass collar worn with jeans
Day 5: A newly completed 6808 using old shirts (I have just been donated another pile of shirts by my Dad after he saw what I did with this one - result!)
Day 6: Back to my favourite nautical top and my favourite outfit
Day 7: The shirt version worn a vintage pattern skirt
So, how do I feel about the pattern and the challenge?
- I still love this pattern but looking at the fit I can see I need to make some changes which I hadn't noticed before. There will be more of these tops in my future so I will spend some time making sure the fit is right.
- I never accessorise! I don't know why, I know I used to when I had an office job. I don't have a lot of storage for accessories at the moment so I guess I never see them when I'm getting dressed.
- I love my blue skirt and I really want to copy it before it gets worn out. I'm going to miss it when it gets a bit colder.
I have enjoyed this challenge so much and I am glad I chose this pattern. Thank you again to Jane for organising it!
