The Self-Made Wardrobe Week 2
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.
And see past updates here.
I’m trying a different room plus a different photo set up, and liking the results much better than last week’s.
Unfortunately this specific set up means I can’t take photos of myself standing up, but it’s easy to use, fast to set up, and something I can live with.
I’m going to get a reflector so I can look to my left without my whole face being in shadow, but other than that I’m more or less happy.
That being said, you can’t see the clothes to their best advantage, so I’ll be taking photos where you can see the garments and posting those separately.
I’m also working away furiously on the sweater I posted about Tuesday, which is a very, very good thing. The mornings here are starting to get a little crisp. I’m also going to try to pick up fabric for some over-shirts and maybe a jacket soon.
I posted a list of the basic categories all of my clothing fit into yesterday, and since I’m ok on skirts (at least for awhile) I’m going to try and shift my focus to cranking out some more tank tops (since I now have a basic tank pattern that I love), and sewing up some over-shirts & jackets.
And as always, if you want to follow the project you can get the blog posts sent to your inbox by signing up for my newsletter here.
