Hey y’all! Thanks so much for all your support and lovely comments on my Project Sewn outfits! It was an honor to compete with such amazing talent. In creative competitions editing is very important, so I wanted to share with you today some pieces that I changed my mind about. They weren’t rejected because they’re not good, just because they didn’t fit my creative vision at the time.
This hat is the Graham Slouch Hat Pattern by Jennifer Adams, knitted by my sweet friend Jess. I was going to wear it with my original outfit for Pink Week, but ditched it when I changed my mind about the outfit. I still love the hat! I wear it on every day that ends in ‘y’.
Which brings me to this blazer. This was my original pink week blazer (also a Bellatrix Blazer). The lining is pink and the button is hot pink (although you can’t see it in any of these pictures.) I originally had it paired with a white and pink tank and the hot pink Jamie Jeans. After seeing it photographed with the jeans I thought it looked a little busy, so I opted to sew up a new tank and blazer and go with those instead.
This is how I wear the blazer in real life. My hand-stamped “Bless Your Heart” tee and dark skinny jeans are perfect with it. I love this outfit so much.
And of course this clutch (tutorial HERE.) I love it so much. I need one in every color!
Ok last piece. This was my original finale look. It’s self-drafted. I absolutely love it! It’s so easy to throw on, I don’t have to wear spanx with it, and it feels like wearing pajamas. I spent a lot of time and energy matching up the chevrons on this thing.
But in the end, I though it was too simple to compete with Oona and Rachel so it had to go. I, of course, decided this at the last minute, so I was sewing my finale look right up until Saturday at 4pm, photographed it at the park, edited the photos that night and turned it in Sunday morning. I live on the edge 😉
So there you have it. At some point I’m going to photograph each piece individually and show you all the outfits I can make with them. That’s the biggest reason I did the competition: new Spring wardrobe!
Love y’all! Thanks for stopping by!
