Last post on this, I promise!
The rules of the mini-wardrobe competition are that you have to make 5 items and have 6 outfits at the end. My mini-wardrobe makes exactly 6 outfits: each of the three tops with each of the two bottoms. You can't even really layer any of them. I really did go for the most simplistic of all wardrobes.
At any rate, here are my outfit photos, taken on my balcony for a change rather than in a corner of my sewing room! I actually like all my outfits although I am not 100% certain I would choose to wear the pattern-mixy polka dot top/print skirt outfit very often. Sadly, the details of my black top are rather obscured as well and jacking up the exposure to show the details like I did for the garment shots just made it look like I had ethereally glowing shorts on.
And that's my mini-wardrobe wrapped up! It was really fun to do, and I am glad I found a way to build in some things I really wanted to make (the Carme blouse in particular). I don't care at all that it's now going into the competition thing where I will get, most likely, a grand total of one vote provided I am allowed to vote for myself. :D MUCH more importantly I am going to wear one of my new outfits when I go out to dinner with one or two people from my former department next week, and everything else will just get absorbed into my normal wardrobe from here on in.
Unfortunately, I'm now on sewing hiatus until I get set back up after the move to the UK. No doubt I will write blog posts containing my usual amount of nonsense, but I won't really be actually making anything for a couple of weeks at least. (Except for the inevitable knitting, of course!) I have such big plans for what I am going to sew in August though, once I am moved in and sorted out and back on track with my work. :D
(Also, totally unrelatedly, I noticed that the official release date of the 05-2014 Ottobre is the end of August, which means hopefully we should start seeing photos soon! I liked Ottobre last year but this year I am NUTS about it. So many of the projects I want to try out over the next few months are from Ottobre!)
