The Wardrobe Challenge is over and I got Clothes!

August Was Wardrobe Challenge Month!

Helloooooo Readers!! August was wardrobe challenge month with the PeriCrafters group on Facebook and I must say it made the month fly by! Since I was a "facilitator of the Pants" my week came fast and went! By that time, it was already the third week of August! (Geees) Anyhooooo, I have another wardrobe I can use with some items I already have in my closet. I actually have clothes I can wear that classify as business casual! (HA! Who knew?)


The pattern (once again) used for this challenge was New Look 6735


I created all the views with some modifications.  I added 8 inches to the cardigan and I call it my cardicoat! (LOL!) I did make the pants however, they belong to another outfit post. The pants I did include are Simplicity 2148 and work just fine. I thought the wide leg was not what I wanted for my "business casual" wardrobe. I also included a dress with my wardrobe as well.  Why not!?

So here are my separate pieces!
I did all the pieces and a dress!  Woot! Woot!

Aside from the five pieces here, I can mix and match them with the basic white blouse/T-shirt or black pants. I can even put on some jeans with any of the T-shirts! Well the possibilities are endless! (Que laughter for being so corny - ROFL!) Below are a few combinations! (I forgot the shoes!)


Mix and Match till you fall out!
I'm always loving a challenge. This one I actually finished and didn't have to rush! I'm getting better! LOL!!  If you haven't already, you need to. Quick Fast and in a Hurry!

Talk Soon

    1. Thanks Mariela! Sewing is my therapy so I try to let the fabric and machine show what I feel.

  2. Thank you for your wonderful contribution to the Pericrafter's Wardrobe Builder's Challenge. Although I did not participate, I took plenty of good notes for future reference. Your new wardrobe is gorgeous and certainly not "Worthington Wear". It is more "Casual Couture" in my opinion! My pinking shears are oiled and cleaned, and so are my sergers and main sewing machine. Thank you so much for ALL of your tips!!!
