Today was another one-piece me-made day. What the me-made-may challenge has taught me so far is that I don't make myself many coordinating pieces. Most of the clothes I make are stand alone pieces and do not necessarily play well with the other articles of clothing I've made. Take this sweater, for instance. I first fell in love with the silver hued cotton yarn, and then forgot to think beyond to what I would wear it with. Sadly, the sweater does not get much wear, especially since it is 100% cotton and very heavy. The asymmetrical closure is very dear to me though, and I'm thinking I should try the pattern again with some Lion Brand Cotton Ease.
Sweater by me, gilet asymetrique pattern from Phildar
Purple gingham blouse - GAP, from ages ago
Trousers - Esprit
My current sewing project was a bit fussy tonight, and so I have had to delay photos one more day. Can't wait to show and tell! Goodnight :)
