So, some quick ideas for winter- my red cardigan can be worn over a cream jumper or a black one, with warm pants:
I also have a lovely me-made hand knit jumper with a lovely cowl neckline - that looks good with a denim skirt I made pre-blog:
Not me-mades, but a nice smart casual outfit - white blouse, cardigan, jeans and scarf:
And a me-made skirt which can be a summer or winter skirt - just add tights, a jumper or white blouse and cardigan , perhaps with a grey scarf:
I rummaged around, and made a few summer outfits as well- the following is a me made cotton skirt, and I partnered it with an old white t, layered with a very flimsy black t shirt - with a fabric me-made belt. I could probably wear this to work.
I don't have many me made clothes yet, but I want to look good while I am learning how to fit clothes - the trouser muslins are done, of course, need to tackle a jacket as well.
So I found a few of my RTW's and made some outfits from them - these will tide me through, at least, while I make clothes that I like.
This is just a simple casual outfit, navy blue casual shirt worn open over and white t-shirt and navy cotton drill skirt:
I also unearthed these two voile blouses:
I made these during the first few months of this blog - knowing full well I needed them in my wardrobe:)
I shall now assess what clothes I need, and what I want, and then come up with a sewing plan...
As you know, I have a lot of black clothes and white blouses, so I have a lot of the basics. I think I need to think about making a few fashionable garments or colourful ones, to pep things up. Not quite sure what yet, I'll start planning next week. That will cheer me up a bit during my paperwork session and give me some sewing plans to look forward to.
