Day one! It was hot and sunny outside, so I decided to take advantage of the weather and start with a dress that doesn't work well with tights or a cardigan.
Simplicity 5822 from 1964, made by me way back in June 2011 out of cotton eyelet.
Day two! The weather got chilly so I skipped the dresses and went for a blouse with my favorite pink Gap jeans.
Colette Patterns Sencha from February 2011 (one of my oldest homemade garments still in rotation!), made out of thrifted chambray and vintage white shell buttons.
Day Three! Even colder out, and it's Friday, so I decided to wear another blouse with jeans.
Another Sencha, from sometime in Summer 2012, this time with the keyhole neckline. Made with rayon challis from Vogue Fabrics and vintage gray shell buttons.
Bonus day! This was from Tuesday when it was 90 degrees out.
Thrifted vintage dress and cardigan dyed by me.
I didn't actually make anything I'm wearing, but the dress is thrifted vintage that I altered to fit. It was too tight in the waist, so I let out the side seams a bit and two pleats in the skirt, one on either side of the zipper. I have been looking for a yellow cardigan forever with no luck, so I bought a white one and dyed it. It's my ode to Zooey.
I'm really looking forward to the nice weather in the upcoming week and more sundresses! Plus, a derby party tomorrow!
