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 120 – NOVEMBER 28th
This lighting is what happens when I take photos before the sun rises…
DAY 121 – NOVEMBER 29th
…or after the sun sets. I was visiting family for the night, and had to take photos in artificial light, so apologies for the terrible lighting.
DAY 122 – NOVEMBER 30th
I knit this sweater with the idea of wearing it mostly during the fall & spring, when the weather is doing it’s transitional-thing, but it turns out it’s also a perfect hanging out at home during the winter sweater.
DAY 123 – DECEMBER 1st
Another week with a 60 degree day. What else do you wear under an alpaca coat when it’s 60 degrees out.
DAY 124 – DECEMBER 2nd
Cascading Flowers Skirt
Every time I wear this skirt I remember how much I love maxi skirts, and how much I want to make more maxi skirts. I have a couple project ideas brewing, I just haven’t had time to start working on them yet.
DAY 125 – DECEMBER 3rd
Basic Black Tank Top
I’m wearing this sweater more and more, and it’s making me realize how much I need one or two more thick & cozy sweaters. So I think I’m going to look for some sweater knits that I can sew into super cozy sweaters – and of course, finish knitting the sweaters I have on my needles.
DAY 126 – DECEMBER 4th
Black Maxi Skirt with a Slit
I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about this sweater, under a scarf, under my winter coat. I thought all those layers would cover up the colorwork – which is what makes the sweater special – but it turns out that even underneath all those layers a smidge of color still manages to pop out, and looks really vibrant against the black of the skirt, the khaki of the scarf and the charcoal of my winter coat.
