For those who have been living under a blogging rock, I’ll explain that OWOP stands for One Week, One Pattern, Tilly’s genius idea for a sewing challenge. Participants choose one pattern and wear one or more garments made from that pattern for a whole week. In my real life, I’m not much of a joiner, but there’s something about a sewing-related wardrobe challenge that I find impossible to resist. Sort of like going to a theme party, which I also love.
I fretted a bit about which pattern to choose, but the weather report for this week indicated chilly temps, so I chose my go-to trouser pattern, Burdastyle 11/09 111. I’ve had fun coming up with outfits that show my interpretation of American Sportswear. Here they are:
Plaid jacket, Orion Nebula print blouse, linen trousers. I’m holding my arm in a strange way to show off my outrageous number of cuff buttons. For more info on the jacket construction, look here on the buttons, here on the collar, here on the pocket flaps.
