I’m bringing home a guest post I wrote for Wardrobe by me. I’m so glad that Christina stumbled across my little blog last year and so so so thankful for everything I have learned from being on her pattern testing team!
I have only been sewing for myself for about a year now and that was never even my intension when I dug my sewing machine out from the attic four years ago. My big plan was to sew something simple like circle skirts for my daughter. I had no idea that this great online sewing community existed let alone all these talented indie pattern designers. It is totally awesome!
By now a good chunk of my wardrobe is made by me and those are the pieces I mostly wear today. My style is very casual, I wear scrubs at work most of the time so I only wear my clothes when going to and from work and when running errands on my day off. When at home I always change into leggings or joggers and a t-shirt or a sweater depending on the temp. I live on the western coast of Norway and it rains a lot here so I usually cover up in rain gear when going to and from work, so actually I could just wear my leggings all the time. But than it wouldn’t be as nice to come home and change into something nice and comfy.
When I was going through my closet to take photos of my me mades that I wear I realised that only four pieces are not from Wardrobe by me patterns.
I think my most worn items are my wardrobe builder tees.
For colder days I use my Sneha top that I made out of too thick fabric a lot
And my two Day tripper sweaters, pattern from Shwin Designs.
As you can see my go to outfit is a pair of jeans and a nice sweater or top. But I also love my Sneha with the symmetric dropped hem, dressed up or down depending on what I’m doing that day.
I have two new pieces that I haven’t had time to blog about yet that are finding their place amongst the favourites. First off is another Sneha, this time dress length with a straight hem. I love how easy it is to sew and how I can use it dressed up with heals or down with some thick stockings and boots.
I also made the Komi kimono jacket in some nice Italian suiting wool to have something a bit warmer as extra layer now in the fall.
That kind of wraps up the part of my me made wardrobe that has been used the most this last year. I’m looking forward to keep adding new pieces and learning new skills. Only the Komi kimono jacket, the last Sneha dress and the Susanne cardigan haven’t made the blog yet, all the other pieces you can find here if you want to have a look.
