Sweater Weather, Non Sweater Weather & Christmas Traveling – The Self-Made Wardrobe Week 21

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-141

DAY 141 – DECEMBER 19th

Versio Sweater
Black Scarf
Graphic Silk Circle Skirt
Black Tights
Brown Boots
Various Rings

I’ve said this before, but I’ve never really been a sweater knitter. Prior to this self-made wardrobe project, I mostly knit super complex lace shawls that I almost never wear. And one of the best parts of this project has been knitting sweaters, learning tons about knitting sweaters, and figuring out how to knit sweaters out of yarn I already have in my yarn stash (none of which was bought with knitting sweaters in mind.)

Day-142

DAY 142 – DECEMBER 20th

Moonstruck Cardigan
Grey Cowl
Black Maxi Skirt with a Slit
Black Tights
Brown Boots
Various Rings

One of the downsides to wearing mostly black is that it kind of all blends together in photographs. One piece just sort of melds into the next.

Day-143

DAY 143 – DECEMBER 21st

Colorful Knit Sweater Dress
Basic Black Tank Top
Black Leggings
Various Rings

I finally got around to getting black leggings to wear under this dress – something I’ve been meaning to do since I finished knitting this dress way back in May.

Day-144

DAY 144 – DECEMBER 22nd

Deconstructed Black Sweater
Boring Black Sweater
Basic Black Tank Top
Graphic Silk Circle Skirt
Black Tights
Brown Boots
Various Rings

I didn’t plan it this way, but I love that when I wear my boring black sweater & my deconstructed sweater they visually blend together and look like a different sweater entirely. I guess that’s one of the benefits of solid black clothing.

Day-145

DAY 145 – DECEMBER 23rd

Versio Sweater
Basic Black Tank Top
Black Circle Skirt with a Slit
Various Rings

A strangely warms spell means a) no snow for Christmas, and b) many fewer layers that can normally be expected for the end of December…

Day-146

DAY 146 – DECEMBER 24th

Green & Blue Archer Button Up Shirt (still without buttons…)
Basic Black Tank Top
Black Scarf
Graphic Silk Circle Skirt
Black Tights
Black Heels
Pocket Watch Necklace
Various Rings

Visiting the parents for Christmas means there are trees outside the windows and fireplaces inside the living room.

Day-147

DAY 147 – DECEMBER 25th

Colorful Knit Sweater Dress
Black Scarf
Black Leggings
Various Rings

Getting dressed without actually getting dressed… what else would you wear on Christmas Day?
