Today's outfit

I'm busy finish the sewing for Stitcher's Guilds SWAP and in this minute I've just started to sew my Hvar Jacket. I also plan for Me Made May which starts on next Tuesday.
Today I wore this t-shirt in linen jersey and a thrifted skirt. We have summer warmth in Provence and it's lovely to wear my summer clothes even if I have some gaps to fill.

Last days

I've been busy during the last weeks but I've registered what I wore every day. I also joined the spring edition of 10x10 and that was fun even if I was a bit bored the 7th day or so. But I had no problem wearing my 10 garments in 10 days. You can see my different outfits with the hashtag #medeas10x10

After the 10x10 Challenge I've started to take pics of my progressive wardrobe and here are the latest days. All outfits from my Stylebook App.
This was what I wore when I travelled from Sweden to France
This Sorbetto Top is a favorite and I want to sew a couple more of that pattern
This is another favorite outfit

My linen cardigan is out from my wardrobe when the temperature is over 20 degrees Celsius

What I clearly can see is that I mostly wear navyblue garments. And I love it. I think my style is a little bit too casual for my taste but I will sew more blouses and dresses to fill the gap. I can soon go to parties where I'm supposed to wear something nicer.

I've missed to fill in my list of which clothes I wore but it's not important. The most important thing for me is to see and feel which clothes makes me most comfortable and happy. And what holes to fill in when I plan my sewing.

I wear what I sew

Today it's the 18th day of my progressive capsule challenge. I try to use all the garments which is hanging in my wardrobe, just to see how I like all of them. There are a few that I think will move on, but I like most of them. 
A couple of days ago I wore my newly sewn Granville Shirt and I really liked it. I've lost some weight and a couple of sizes so this was my first one in the new size and I think it's close to perfect. Maybe I'll make the sleeves a little bit longer next time.
I've also updated my Stylebook App with my new garments. I took new photos of old garments to get them better. Last time I took photos I just hanged the garments on a hanger but now I used my dressmaking mannequin and the pictures get som much nicer.

Pattern Review Wardrobe Contest

I've sewn a mini wardrobe for Pattern Review's Wardrobe Contest and the voting has begun. Please vote for my wardrobe
I needed a new wardrobe, mostly because I lost some weigth, and these garment's are perfect both for working at home and go out with friends
 I want a classic style but also love to use some print to light it up. This Liberty Fabric is one of my favourites.
 I think these six garment's will make me feel great during spring and I'll have something to wear for every occasion.
 The dark blue tee is sewn of a wool knit and is lovely to wear when it's a little bit chilly.
I haven't worn jeans or pants since 2011 but I will try again and see if I like it. I have fabric for another pair but maybe I'll wait until autumn because in summer there is no use for jeans in Provence, where I live. 
Please go to the voting site and vote for my wardrobe!
