The Self-Made Wardrobe is a project where I only wear garments I’ve made, for one year.
You can read more about the project here.
It’s the end of Week 3 of the Self-Made Wardrobe Project, and almost the end of August (which means it’s almost fall – eep!)
Luckily the weather is still warm, but a couple chilly mornings have definitely turbo fueled my sweater knitting. (The body of my sweater is done – yay!)
And I’m starting to think ahead towards cushy cozy sweaters, skirts with tights, and my fall through winter staple – jeans…
My current plan is to finish the sweater I’m working on, whip out some more tank tops, maybe make another skirt or two, and then turn my attention to making some jeans. That way I can focus on making jeans, without worrying about having nothing to wear.
Yesterday, I whipped up the world’s simplest cardigan, and a no sew jersey dress, that I can’t wait to wear and show off.
Unfortunately I’m still trying to work out how to get good, clear, interesting, photos of the garments themselves. I have worked out how to take some horrendous photos, but good ones are proving trickier.
Since a pile of books will only take you so far, and taking photos of yourself isn’t the easiest thing, I suspect I’m going to need a proper tripod for this. I am working on it…
