The Self-Made Wardrobe Week 13

The Self-Made Wardrobe is a project where I only wear garments I’ve made.
It’s sort of a year long experiment in getting dressed without clothing labels.


Day-85

DAY 85 – OCTOBER 24th

Moonstruck Sweater
Black Tank Top
Cascading Flowers Skirt
Black Flats
Bicycle Clock Necklace
Various Rings

It feels like, I haven’t worn this skirt in awhile, which is funny because I wore it almost non stop throughout August.

Day-86

DAY 86 – OCTOBER 25th

Versio Sweater
Black Tank Top
Graphic Silk Circle Skirt
Sneakers
Clock Necklace
Various Rings

Not sure how I feel about this sweater with this skirt, some days I really like them together, and some days I feel like they just don’t quite work. I also think I prefer it with not so heavy a necklace.

Day-87

DAY 87 – OCTOBER 26th

Boring Black Sweater
Black Tank Top
Black Maxi Skirt with a Slit
Black Flats
Bead Crochet Necklace
Various Rings

Back to all black, and I love it! I really do love wearing this sweater, even with it’s shrinking sleeves, and with it being a boring nightmare to knit.

Day-88

DAY 88 – OCTOBER 27th

Moonstruck Sweater
Black Tank Top
Gingham Skirt
Sneakers
Various Rings

Eh. Not loving it at all. I mostly wanted to see if the skirt worked with sneakers – which it does – and threw the sweater on because I was cold. I would have liked it much better with my boring black sweater.

Day-89

DAY 89 – OCTOBER 28th

Moonstruck Sweater
Black Tank Top
Graphic Silk Circle Skirt
Black Flats
Bicycle Clock Necklace
Various Rings

I’m the probably the only one to notice/be able to see/know that my necklace is on backwards in this shot.

Day-90

DAY 90 – OCTOBER 29th

Boring Black Sweater
Black Tank Top
Black Maxi Skirt with a Slit
Khaki Scarf
Black Flats
Various Rings

More all black! Yay! Before this project top to bottom black was definitely one of my getting dressed defaults. And while I am glad to bring color into my wardrobe, I do miss the ease of throwing black on.

Day-91

DAY 91 – OCTOBER 30th

Perfect Transitional Sweater
Black Tank Top
Graphic Silk Circle Skirt
Sneakers
Clock Necklace
Various Rings

I’m starting to crave new clothes again. Long skirts, cozy button ups, easy slouchy sweaters. I have a couple button up shirt sewing projects planned, a sewn sweater in the works, I’m scheming about another easy, long black skirt, and am wanting to get back to my jeans. First though, I’m concentrating on my winter coat…

  1. It’s pretty impressive that you can dress yourself daily with your own handmade items! I think I’d go a little crazy from the lack of pants, but I love long skirts as well. Your black sweater/maxi skirt combo is particularly elegant.

      Thanks Alicia! I am going a little bit crazy from the lack of pants, before this project I definitely lived in my jeans. Jeans are in the plan – once I finish my winter coat.

      I’m also a huge fan of that black sweater + black skirt combo, and I think I’m going to need a few more black sweaters & skirts.
