Oh Wow One Week One Pattern (that’s OWOWOP!) I’m joining the fray & taking up the One Week One Pattern challenge, OWOP organised by Tilly of Tilly and the Buttons, starting Saturday 24th March.
I had a few options, with the following patterns entering the competition “choose me, choose me” they all clamoured.
Simplicity 2599, I think I’ve made four or 5 of these, & love the frill and ruffle additions to them.
I won’t use this as my one week one pattern however as I think of it as a summer pattern. And I have a feeling that they are all in my ironing basket, languishing there when I swapped my summer to winter clothes over. Waiting for me to press them before packing them lovingly away. Sometimes I think I do not deserve such pretty things.
Option number two, Colette Patterns Beignet.
Now the Beignet would be a relatively easy option – work & play covered nicely. But I just want to try something new & feel rightly challenged. I’m going to spend one week in Colette Violet blouses. I have now made three & think it will force me to be a bit cuter at the weekend (& keep on top of my washing & ironing!). Having only three will force me to wear each blouse at least two different ways. That sounds like a bit more thoughtful.
Here they are …..
Yes, that is another Violet on the end! It’s made with some silky fabric purloined at a carboot sale last summer.
I tarted this one up with a double collar, the one below being scalloped. I have so many ideas for the Violet blouse I have to stop myself and make something else! But having three for next week’s challenge will do just fine.
Who else is taking part? I’m interested to see what other participants get up to. I know that Joanne at StitchandWitter has already declared for the Violet too ….
