34/59: Snake Top, Boyfriend Cardigan, Straight-Legged Jeans, Converse


What are you up to this weekend? I'm hoping to have some time to sew. Jason was out of town for most of this week, so I would love a few hours off from childcare after being on duty 24/7. I have some cute fabric and lots of ideas, so I'll see what I can do. 

I'm enjoying following along with this wardrobe planning challenge on Coletterie.com (the Colette Patterns blog). Kristen is using Colette's Wardrobe Architect plan to design her personal wardrobe. She has committed to buying no new clothing in 2015; she will make new things or buy second-hand items. It's fun to see what patterns she is buying and what she plans to make. I'm looking forward to seeing her finished garments, especially since I have a couple of the same patterns. 

I love to see how different people use the same patterns to make their own unique clothes. If you've ever bought a pattern and then weren't sure what kind of fabric to buy, or which trims or details to add, try searching for the name of the pattern on Flickr. Chances are, you'll get to see several interpretations of the same piece of clothing. It can be pretty inspiring and fun.
