First, what I wore:
- Monday - Simplicity 2690 blue tunic dress, sewn 2010. I wore this earlier in the month, but didn't get a picture of it. So a slight cheat of the rules.
- Tuesday - New Look 6811 denim drawstring pants, again; worn with RTW purple t-shirt, again
- Wednesday - Vogue 8565 green rayon jersey top, again; worn with RTW white capri pants
- Thursday - self-drafted brown twill skirt, again
Ang, at youlookfab recently posted a challenge to list Five Adjectives to Define Your Style. I know that I prefer a modern, classic style. I have tried to add classic pieces to my wardrobe, but often end up with outfits that look too conservative, which is not really me. Casual clothes are a must. I'm drawn to making clothes much too nice for everyday wear, so I need to think about the practicality of what I make. Some of my favorite outfits for the month also had a feminine element to them. I'm not talking frilly or flowery, but a skirt or a fitted top...something to make me feel lady-like. I need to sew more dresses. Finally, there is a bit of a rebel in me. I have to be just a little bit different from everyone else. That is one of the reasons I love to sew my own clothes. Chances are very slim that someone in my small town (or in the world) will have something just like me. So with these five words in mind - modern, classic, casual, feminine, and different - I am re-evaluating what I wear and what I sew. I am having fun and looking more like...me.
