For me, it's a raincoat that I sewed quick and dirty, because I wanted to pack it on a trip. Weirdly enough, I wear that darn thing at least once a week, because I use it as a windbreaker as well as a raincoat. Yes, it has flaws--no drawstring in the hood, ugly zipper stitching, no elastic at the wrists--but darn it if I just don't keep coming back to it!

What do you wear more often than anything else? Are you happy with the way it turned out? Or, are you like me, and wear it just because it fits a need?

I would have to say my panties and bras go into daily rotation, but for outer wear, definitely my jeans.

Mine would have to be a TNT Pamela Leggett's Perfect T-Shirt, # 104. I've made the shirt five times and have a sixth one cut out and ready to sew. It's so comfortable and much nicer than a regular "T" so I wear them a lot.

Here is the review, if you're interested.

My Ottobre Tees! I have made at least 6 in different colors and they look great with sweaters or jackets for work or dressed down for casual wear. I need to make some in more colors -- they go with everything if you make them in nice fabrics.

Burda pants by far, as well as another pair of pants I drafted the pattern for from a fav pair of RTW. Thanks for reminding me I need to redraft that baby...and the Ottobre tees get a work out too. I also need more - and to add the T-neck to them as well.

And not exactly WORN, but the lunch bag is used every day.

My polar fleece socks, made from Malden fleece, using a pattern from one of Polar Fleece Pizazz Books! Used a triple straight stitch and they never have torn nor worn out! Lots of opportunity to wear these up here in Northern Michigan!

French terry capri length yoga leggings. They look and feel great compered to too thin, too tight RTW. And a bag that I carry pretty much everywhere for multiple uses. Kind of wishing it would fall apart now as I am ready for something new!

A red and black flannel blouse. It was a muslin and I ended up wearing it a lot last winter over a black turtle neck T shirt.
