203 days of handmade clothing – The Self-Made Wardrobe Week 29

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-197

DAY 197 – FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 13th

Deconstructed Sweater
Not-So-Straightforward Basic Purple Sweater
Black Tank Top
Graphic Silk Circle Skirt
Black Tights
Brown Boots
Various Rings

I’m still chipping away at my second purple sweater perfect for layering. I’m into the second sleeve, and hoping to steal a little bit of time for it this weekend – but we’ll see how that goes.

Day-198

DAY 198 – SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 14th

Boring Black Sweater
Black Tank Top
Black Scarf
Graphic Silk Circle Skirt
Black Tights
Brown Boots

Each time I wear this sweater I consider making a second lace weight black sweater – and then remember how boring it was to knit – before deciding that (for this year) I can live with only one thin black sweater.

Boring Black Sweater

Cascading Flowers Skirt
Black Tights
Robot Clock Necklace

    See current issue of Threads for making your own underwear. I love wearing the ones I’ve made in the past. Fit so much better.
