What I make in a week in May

I loved the wardrobe in a week contest last May. I focused on just two patterns and made two of each. The contest gave me the reason to do this and I am so happy with the results. 

In August I understand there is another contest planned and for that one I am going to do a new pattern for pants for winter and a long sleeved blouse. That an a jacket and I will have something to work with all next season.

Great basics that will match lots of stuff and not go out of style.

Very nice wardrobe. The color combinations are great together.

What pattern did you use for the sleeveless blouse? It's great.

The sleeveless blouse is from an Ottobre Woman magazine issue 2 2006 https://www.ottobredesign.com/

Excellent patterns.
