#OWOP2017 Outfits and my thoughts

This year was my first time taking part at #owop! But wait, what is the #owop challenge? One week, one pattern aka #owop is a photo challenge for sewists who want to try and make the most out of their patterns. How does it work? The sewists choose one and only pattern and wear garments made out of it for an entire week! You don’t have to make an entire collection if you don’t want to. However, you should have made a few garments in order to mix and match and style your outfits differently.

For this year’s #owop, I chose the Inari Tee Dress sewing pattern by Named. I ended up choosing this pattern because it is one of my most used sewing pattern which I really like and it easy to wear. I have made 3 garments so far. The truth is that I was planning to sew a 4th version but unfortunately life happens so I didn’t manage to make another one.

Let’s have a look at my #owop2017 outfits:

Day 7

I missed day 7…I cheated and I didn’t wear any of my Inaries! 🙁

My favorite looks were from day 1, 2 and 4. This little grey Inari top is reeeeeaally handy. I’m glad that this challenge made me think out of the box. However, the truth is that I got nervous during the last 2 days as I thought that I didn’t have anything else to wear. That was the reason I quit day 7. I know I shouldn’t!

Although I am used to wearing memade items this challenge did put me out of my comfort zone. Having to stylish each garment each day so they look different enough was quite interesting. Overall, I firmly believe that it is actually a very helpful challenge with which you learn, expand your styling skills and be creative. Finally, I would say that this challenge could help not only any sewist being creative with the patterns that they already own but also pattern hoarders get a step back and realize what they are capable to make with one and only sewing pattern! There are a lot of times that I really want to make something out of my stash but then a new pattern is being released and I get distracted! Do you feel the same!?

What do you think? Did you take part in this year’s #owop? Did you enjoy the process? Let me know in the comments below!

Until next time,

Happy sewing!!
