It's the 'One Week One Pattern' (OWOP) challenge being hosted by Tilly who blogs over at Tilly and the Buttons. The idea is to take a tried n' true pattern that you've made several times and wear those items for one entire week!
One of my tried n' true patterns is Simplicity 3688 a reissued Simplicity pattern for trousers, jacket, blouse and skirt from 1941:
It will be fun to get creative with styling my trousers throughout the week. So far, I only have two pairs but I'm hoping I can sew up one if not two more before the week is through!
OWOP Day One: A Little Bit Fancy
OWOP pattern: Simplicity 3688 navy blue trousers made in a lightweight wool. First blogged about here.
Styling: I wore my trousers with a blouse I made from Wearing History's 1934 pattern called 'Manhattan Melodrama' (originally a gown pattern that I made into separates). Made last February for Valentine's Day. I accessorised with a vintage navy handbag.
What I did: David and I went out in the evening with his boss and some of his colleagues down in Portobello (which is right on the beach). It was really, really foggy during the day (and yes, I did wear a coat--but I was glad I was wearing the Manhattan Melodrama blouse because the restaurant was really warm!)
OWOP Day Two: A Groovy Spring
OWOP pattern: Simplicity 3688 dark green trousers made in a lightweight suiting material. First blogged about here.
Styling: I wore my green trousers with my pillowcase faux wrap blouse and my Ness pink tartan wedge shoes. Instead of tying the belt around the blouse, I wore it in my hair and tried to do a sort of 60's vibed hairstyle.
What I did: Not a whole lot! It was definitely a lazy Sunday with some time spent outside and some time spent sewing!
