Tilly is doing a really interesting project over on her blog that I thought some of you might be interested in.
It’s called OWOP: One Week, One Pattern. The idea is to wear variations of a single sewing pattern for a whole week, which I think is a really fun idea. As Tilly says, “It’s about celebrating those sewing patterns that we love so much we use them again and again.” It seems like a great way to remind yourself about your old favorites and standbys, or challenge yourself in the styling and details area.
I’m delighted to say that our patterns have a strong showing among the participants so far. Quite a compliment. But there are plenty of other independent companies represented too, which is very cool.
I really enjoy challenges like this. They make you think a bit more critically about your choices and what you value, which I think helps you allot your precious sewing time a bit better. So cheers to Tilly for that.
As for me, I don’t have time to whip up several garments at the moment, but if I did, I think I’d go with the crowd and choose Sorbetto. On the other hand, I do already own 5 or 6 of them…
What type of garment would you choose to vary for a week?
