These four items produce four different outfits: Skirt and Blouse Skirt and Jacket Pants and Blouse Pants and Jacket
I have the added advantage of two extra outfits because my jacket is made in reversible fabric.
I have lost a lot of weight since last Autumn and needed new work clothes now the teaching term has started. This contest gave me the impetus to get started, I would never get 4 garments finished in a month without it.
I will continue to build on this colour scheme and try to only make garments which go with at least one of the items here.
I have never made a reversible garment before and enjoyed the challenge of making the seams, pockets and darts work from either side.
I like to make contrasting collars and had great fun – and a bit of an accident with the bleaching and dying the collar and cuffs of the fabulous Deer and Doe Airelle blouse.
The skirt was rather a challenge when I realised how badley skewed the fabric was cut. Necessity being the mother of invention, I have now added a stylish skirt hem treatment to my repertoire.
The pant fabric is not one I will use again, I am not a fan of synthetic fabrics. The drape of the fabric is beautiful and I know I will find the pants really comfortable.
Conclusion A great set of garments made in record time. Even if you don't enter the competition, I really comend the mini-wardrobe concept. For the effort of each garment, you gain extra outfits – Brilliant.
