OWOP 2014 - Sign Up Now!

Thank you so much for your enthusiastic response to this year's OWOP, it's good to know I won't be doing the challenge all by myself (and believe me, that was definitely a concern!) The purpose of this here blog post is to outline all the details of OWOP and hopefully answer any questions you may have. It's also where you can SIGN UP for the challenge!! Woop whoop!

What is OWOP?
One Week, One Pattern! (or OWOP) is a group challenge where participants wear garments made from just one pattern of their choice, every day for a week.

When is it taking place?
From Saturday 6th to Friday 12th September 2014 

Do I have to use a particular pattern?
No! You can use any pattern you like, it's entirely up to you. It can be one of the 'Big Four' patterns, an Indie sewing pattern or a vintage pattern. You could also choose to work with a self drafted pattern, a pattern from a book or an online pattern or tutorial. Anything goes, as long as you've made it yourself.

How many different versions of the same pattern do I need?
Again, that's your choice. If you're particularly enamoured of a pattern and have made trillions of versions, you may be in a position to wear a different version every day. During the last OWOP, I had three versions of the same pattern and found this worked well. At a guess, I'd say between two and four versions will give you plenty of options. You may even just have one version that you'd like to style in lots of different ways. Remember, the fewer versions you have, the greater the challenge!

Do I need to sew new garments especially for OWOP?
Nope! If you're using a well loved pattern, the assumption is that you already have at least one or two versions in your wardrobe. It's perfectly acceptable to wear garments that you've already created for OWOP and that's exactly what I'll be doing. BUT..... you may have been meaning to sew another version of your favourite pattern for ages and this could be just the kick up the arse you need to do it! Perhaps you've wondered what it would look like in a different fabric or colour? With a longer or shorter hem? With pockets or added ric-rac? Well now's your chance to experiment, which is why the challenge has a reasonably long lead-time before it starts.

How do I sign up?
The format for signing up for the project will be exactly the same as last time:
Please leave a comment on this post confirming your chosen pattern in the following format:
Pattern company + pattern name + garment type
(eg. Colette Sorbetto top OR Simplicity 2444 dress OR Delphine skirt from Love at First Stitch).
EDIT: If you're still undecided on the pattern, don't worry - just sign up initially, then leave another comment naming your pattern once you've decided.

Then starting on Saturday 6th September, wear things you've made from your chosen pattern for seven consecutive days. Take a photo each day to show how you've restyled it/them (see my Ginger Skirt week from 2012 for reference)

At the end of the week I'll ask for links to your photos if you care to share so I can create a round-up post of participants. Please keep all seven photos on one web page. If you leave a link to your photos or blog, I'll assume this means you consent to me borrowing a photo or two for the round-up post - or if you'd rather I didn't, just say so when you leave a link. You may also want to share your reflections on the process.

Do I have to have a blog to join in?
No you don't! This is a great project for non-bloggers to join in with. How about uploading your photos onto Instagram, or a Pinterest board or Flickr set and sharing the link? It would be great if you could use the hashtag #OWOP14 when posting photos on Twitter or Instagram, then you can search for other OWOP participants too! If you don't like posing for photos, you don't have to be in them yourself, you can always arrange the outfits on a dress form or a hanger.  

Having said that, one reader has used OWOP as the impetus to start her own brand new blog - Lady Jane Makes - which is fabulous!

Will there be impressive graphs and pie charts like last time?!
I'm afraid you won't be seeing impressive graphs and pie charts this year. But you'll be delighted to hear that sub-standard graphs and pie charts will be making an appearance! I can never hope to out-geek Tilly's stats from last time, but I'm sure I'm not the only one who wants to know all the ins and outs of this year's pattern choices.

Is there an OWOP picture or button I can use on my blog?
As you know, I'm not the smartest cookie when it comes to anything technical (see above), but I've done my best! Here are a couple of pictures  (don't laugh) which you can use on your blog if you so wish, to show the world you're participating in OWOP.

Large OWOP

You can also add this link to the picture which will direct readers back to this post:

Anything else I should know?
I have a couple of guest posts lined up from other sewing bloggers reflecting on their own personal style, which I'm really looking forward to reading. I'm also putting together an awesome giveaway package (or two!) for OWOP participants. I'll keep you posted!

If you have any other questions about OWOP, please let me know in the comments and I'll do my best to answer them. Right, over to you now to SIGN UP! Hoorah!! x

  1. I'll be using my vintage Simplicity 4238 blouse pattern for OWOP! Wahay!!!

    ReplyDelete
  2. I'd love to sign up. I'm a sucker for repeating skirt patterns so this is right up my street, but which one? The Delphine? The Ginger? Or even the Charlotte? Decisions, decisions...

    ReplyDelete
  3. Hurray! I'm in with the Christine Jonson Wrap Dress! (http://www.cjpatterns.com/WrapDress526.htm)

    ReplyDelete
  4. I'm going to wear the Archer shirt pattern for a week :)

    ReplyDelete
  5. Whoopee! I'm so excited for this. I'm pretty sure I'll be joining in with the Emery dress (color you shocked, I'm sure), but I'll wait to decide for certain until I get to a couple of patterns this summer that I may want to also crank out a few of (including Hollyburn as I'm in desperate need of solid skirts). So I'll give it a think!

    ReplyDelete
  6. I'm definitely going to sign up for this challenge but need to have a little think about the pattern.

    Like Teresa from NBT above, its difficult to choose ONE pattern when there are so many lovely ones to select from.
    Strong contenders for me are; Colette Sorbetto (a bit easy though), Colette Ginger skirt, Sew Over it Tulip skirt or Simplicity 9620 shift dress, and Tilly & TB's or Grainline.... ahhhh!!

    ReplyDelete
  7. It's me - the Other Jane. I'll be making, wearing (and blogging about!) the Simplicity 1699 dress pattern. I *might* have bought some fabric to make another one today......oops!

    1. Hello! Can I please be cheeky and ask how I can follow your blog by e-mail as I can't seem to find how to on your blog.

      Thank you and kind regrds,

      Rosemary.

  8. Yes, I'm in!! I think it will be the Colette Moneta dress. But may I reserve the right to change my mind please?

    ReplyDelete
  9. I'm in! I'll be using the Emery dress by Christine Haynes. So excited, now I have an excuse to make even more!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Okay sign me up!
    I am also new to the blogging world so first time participating in a challenge like this, I'll being using New Look 6123.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Count me in, a new thing for me to do but looking forward to it. I'll be using this pattern...

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'm in! Have to have a good long think about the pattern. Tempted to go with Deer & Doe's Plantain, but it might be a cheat because it's easy. I'll have to get back to you on that one. But definitely up for this!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I'm so in! I'll be wearing the By Hand London Elisalex dress. :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. This sounds fabulous and terrifying all at the same time! Count me in - Closet Case Files' Nettie :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. I'm in! I was on the fence, but I've decided that I'll join in on the fun! I'll be using Christine Hayne's Emery dress pattern. I know it's not a big surprise, but it's my tried and true pattern. I'll probably be using it as a sloper to make different versions of the dress. Now to think of it, if I use the Emery's bodice, do I have to use the same skirt for all of my versions? Or can I get creative with the skirt?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You can be as creative as you like Kathy, the more skirt variations the better! x

      Delete
  16. I'm in. I'll be making the Deer & Doe plantain. It is the only pattern I have ever used that needs no adjustments at all. This coming from a gal that stands 5'11". Fits me like it was custom made.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'd love to take this challenge as an opportunity to make more Emery Dresses. Sign me up!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Count me in with the Sewaholic Renfrew T! Thanks for hosting :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm in, but am sorry to be half cooked, and still working out which pattern to use!! Will report back, promise!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'm in too! I'll be wearing my trusty deer and doe chataigne shorts :-)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm in, too! I need an input to finish some more office basics, so I'll probably go with the Sewaholic's Belcarra blouse... still to decide, though :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'm in! I'll be wearing Newlook 6808!

    ReplyDelete
  23. This sounds fun, I am in. But no idea what pattern yet!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm in - but you all may be very sick of the asymmetrical (scooped) neck top #4 from Drape Drape 2 by Hikato Sato if you've seen my MMMay14 feed ;) I was going add the Grainline Moss Mini as well, but the silhouette is pretty similar despite the fabric variations, so I'll leave it at the top for my OWOP ;)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hi Jane. I'd love to sign up for this. I'm going to go with the Simplicity 2444 dress and plan to use this challenge as the kick I need to get working through some of my fabric stash!

    ReplyDelete
  26. This is a great idea, I would love to get involved. Only trouble is which pattern to use! I am torn between the Delphine and Kelly skirts. I already have 2 Kelly's which makes for a good start. On the other hand I only have half a Delphine (its a WIP). I will have to give it some more thought. Maybe it will be something totally different. Also I agree with Char its a great opportunity for some stash busting. Thanks for hosting Jane.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm in! I'll be using the By Hand London Anna dress. So far I've got 4 versions, with plans for at least one more before September!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I would love to join up for this, am thinking the Colette Sorbetto as I have made 4 variations so far but that might be a bit easy, I really want to make some more skirts or some wintertime shorts so will get back to you with final pattern.

    Is it ok to post on Instagram? I find that the easiest to use.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Posting on Instagram is absolutely fine, I'll add that as an option to the post. x

      Delete
  29. Count me in! Just the excuse I needed to make more Moneta dresses!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'd like to play along. Depending on the weather, I'll either be wearing New Look 6843 or Sewaholic Hollyburn skirts. Now I have a reason to wear the 'same' clothes every day!

    ReplyDelete
  31. haven't decided on the pattern yet but there are plenty of options... I'm in!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Kate and Rose Patterns Giselle dress for me! I have sewn it three times already and absolutely love it. Perhaps I will make another before OWOP starts!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'm keen! I'm currently thinking I'll be wearing (and hacking) my Bellini blouse pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oh I am really tempted, but I am not sure how big I will be by September - and whether the maternity wear I am sewing now will fit me... Otherwise I would be quite happy to have a week of Tova tops!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Sounds like a great idea. Still deciding on the pattern, but count me in!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Have decided on Butterick 6016 - like my Eiffel Tower print dress. Lots of inspiration and different variations planned... :-)

      Delete
  36. I'm In! I'll be wearing a self drafted pant. Thanks for hosting :D

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yes please count me in - I am not certain about the pattern yet - probably my TNT new look 6843 skirt bit you never know what might happen between now and then!

    Louise

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm IN!
    Colette Patterns Laurel Dress/Top

    ReplyDelete
  39. If it is baking hot, it will be Colette Sorbetto. If it is chilly, it will be Colette Sorbetto with a cardi :)
    Thank you for organising.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I'm not 100% sure I'll find the time to really join in... But I am certain about the pattern: Jolene top from La Maison Victor (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/424393964858496021/ or http://sakikojones.fr/blog/10721-revue-de-presse-la-maison-victor-3)

    ReplyDelete
  41. I am in. It will probably be either the Delphine Skirt or Mimi blouse from Tilly's book. Unless I come across something else I like in the next few weeks.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Count me in! Probably a dress Vogue 8494.. but I might change my mind :-)

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'm in! Using the Sewaholic Pendrell blouse.
    Hope to whip up a knit version before the challenge week.

    ReplyDelete
  44. What a great idea, count me in. Although I have several fave patterns that I have made multiple versions of, I think I am going to go for Tilly's Coco - had already planned for another couple anyway. Look forward to it!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Since I already have made 3 Ginger skirts by Collette Patterns and have fabric for a fourth, I just might do the challenge! I've never done anything like this before, so I am super excited!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. New to the world of blogs, but I'm in. Very hard to chose it was a debate between Simplicity remake of 40's blouse pattern 1692 and a vintage Marian Martin 9061 a blouse/jumper (I don't know what it's called where you are from, but not a sweater) combo. I chose the Marian Martin combo as I need a new dress for fall/winter church services and the jumper can be easily altered to make a nice sleeveless dress for summer and the under blouse can be done for winter and fall. Does this qualify? If not, will do the simplicity. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The Marian Martin combo sounds great! Looking forward to seeing it! x

      Delete
  47. I'm in. No idea on what pattern yet, if it's still warm enough I could wear my vast collection of Lady Skaters

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'm in! Pretty sure my pattern will be the See Kate Sew Zippy top/dress.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Sounds like it's right up my alley. I'll be using my TNT Pamela's Perfect Tee and my self-drafted trousers.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I'll be posting on flikr as I don't (yet) write a blog, will be either Sorbetto (1 made, 1 already cut out) or Lady Skater (1 made, 1 sleeveless hack top made, I fabric ready)

    ReplyDelete
  51. I just was thinking "I don't reuse patterns a lot".... but really thinking about it, this is ssssooooo not true. I use my mini skirt pattern quite a bit! So I choose a self drafted mini skirt pattern!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Ill be using simplicity 4070, (well the bodice part anyway I tend to go rough on skirts!) Everything I've made from it before is in tatters so ill be starting afresh! Nice chance to sew something pretty!

    P.S I really hope this isn't a binding contract, everything in our house starts off with good intentions!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I'm in! Based on what I have in my wardrobe right now it would have to be a Burda skirt pattern (Michelle or 2009/09 126B), but I think it would be nicer to have a top to wear so that I don't have to go without pants for a week (as you noted previously!). Will work on it!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I sign up! With the Sewaholic Alma blouse.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I'm in. I'll be doing the Mabel Skirt or the Nettie bodysuit or both? I'm blogging over at SewKnitCook.blogspot.com.au

    ReplyDelete
  56. Oh! I'm am definitely going with the Moneta dress by Colette - Such a good staple!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Not a blogger but it's high time I joined in on a sewing challenge, I usually just read about them and admire all the makes :) I haven't decided on a pattern yet though.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Finally decided! Because, hopefully it will still be pretty warm here, going to go for Colette's Ginger Skirt. Already have three, and I'd love to try one with piping, so it'll give me the push I need. Thanks for hosting.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I'd love to join to, using Tilly's lilou dress pattern from live at first stitch I've made two already so its a good excuss to make some more!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Count me in! Think it will be the Delphine skirt from Tilly's Love at First Stitch but I may change my mind once I have made the first one!!!

    First time I have participated in something like this so really excited

    ReplyDelete
  61. I'm in, with a skirt pattern - Simplicity 2152. I shall have to make more, as I have worn two of them to destruction!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I'd like to take part in this challenge, I will be using the Sis & Boom Meghan peasant top pattern, I love the style & Finished results :)

    ReplyDelete
  63. I think my first comment was eaten by the Internet. If not, sorry for the duplicate.

    I'm in! I think I'll either use the Sorbetto pattern or New Look 6107. I'll have to see what I end up sewing in the next few weeks.

    Not a blogger but here's my flickr https://www.flickr.com/photos/57668325@N05/

  64. Simplicity 2147 - dress/tunic/shirt. This is my first sewing/wardrobe challenge and I'm looking forward to it. I blog (sporadically) at The Braided Rug at danandamyhess.blogspot.com. I'll post my pics there. :)

  67. I'll throw my hat into the ring for this one. Thurlow variations here we come!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Count me in! My OWOP will be Vogue 2514 (the skirt portion) and either New Look 6013 (modified into a top) or Jennifer Lauren Bronte top. I'm sure I already have enough of the first two- http://sartorialsewing.blogspot.com/2014/06/two-patterns-three-looks-or-my-favorite.html. I guess I could also do Thurlows or Junipers, but I'll be honest I'm more of a skirt girl.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Count me in with the swingpants from simplicity 3688 - I have a pair in black that i love but been meaning to sew another pair in a vintage fabric that i got a while back. I will be posting on instagram - Is there a official # to use in order to find all the others pictures!?
    Oh i cant wait!

    1. I've made those trousers twice and they're ace, they'll be great for OWOP. The hashtag to use for Twitter and Instagram is #OWOP14 - I've just edited the post to include it too, thanks for the prompt. And good luck! x

  72. I would love to sign up- but can it be a children pattern? meaning- NOT me?

    ReplyDelete
  73. I'm in. I'm going to be wearing the Gertie pencil skirt pattern from her book.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Ohhhw, I so want to do this! The thing I really need more of is the Colette Ceylon dress, but I can't wear that for a week, I'll look like I'm attempting time-travel! Might have to rethink... I have a few blouse patterns to choose from so might go for one of them instead, will have to have a rummage and confirm! X

    ReplyDelete
  75. I am in with the Lady Skater Dress I think.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I'm in! I think it will probably be the Winifred dress, although if a fab sunny September this may change......

  77. Woo hoo! This is the first group-sew thing I've ever joined! I will be wearing my trusty Simplicity 2588, both the regular dress version, and a skirt which I hacked from the pattern. Dontbeprettywithit.blogspot.com

    ReplyDelete
  78. Finally decided! Gertie's Portrait Blouse (from her book) for me. As it's a) quick!, and b) I can make a couple more without contravening my 'no more fabric til I've used up my stash' promise. Yay :)

    ReplyDelete
  79. I'm in! I'll use the Washi Dress pattern by Made by Rae. Yay for no zippers/buttons (my nemeses). I also started a blog for OWOP - looking forward to documenting my new makes for 2014!

  80. I'm new to sewing and to blogging and would love to join in on OWOP. I am going to wear a simple pencil skirt that I am currently sewing as part of a Craftsy beginners' class. It's the Butterick 5466 pattern and I have a few pieces of fabric in my stash that need using up, so I will try to make a few versions to wear for the week. Looking forward to it.

  81. I'm in, I will be using my TNT self drafted skirt pattern!

  82. Ooh, I'd love to join in with this. Missed out on Me Made May as I didn't have anything finished and still don't!

  84. Count me in. I'll either use new look 6035 my most used pattern with jacket skirt trousers and top or my first dress pattern simplicity 1913 which I return to.

    ReplyDelete
  85. This sounds like so much fun! I'm in, but I need some time to descide which pattern will be my base for that week :)

    ReplyDelete
  86. I used the Sorbetto pattern last time, I think I am going to use simplicity 8523 this time, another simple top or it could be Tilly's Miette skirt or I could change my mind again!

  88. Sounds fun - I'm in! I'm not sure what pattern at the moment though, probably either the Emery dress or the Sewaholic Hollyburn skirt, but I need to give it a bit more thought!

  89. Count me in! I'm choosing Simplicity 2892- 6 lovely blouse varieties that I've been meaning to make for ages. View A is now cut out and ready to sew.

    ReplyDelete
  90. I'm in! I so need a boost like this to just 'sew' ahead! :D I'm contemplating between Colette Peony dress, a Tilly and the Buttons pattern, and Sassy Librarian Blouse...

    Thank you for hosting the challenge!

    ReplyDelete
  97. Count me in. Not sure what pattern yet though.

    ReplyDelete
  98. This sounds like so much fun! I think I'll do Burda 4/2011 #108 shirt dress as I've almost finished my second (still needs a hem) and have fabric to make more. Will definitely be a good challenge for me to figure out how to style them differently.

    ReplyDelete
  99. I, for one, will be looking forward to the sub-standard graphs and pie-charts.

    Count me in with McCalls 3830 Straight Skirt.

  105. Yes, I want to play! Now what to do, what to do....

  109. I've totally dilly-dallied over signing up, but what the heck, add my name to the list too! I'll need to have a think about what pattern to use, but more than likely it'll be the Grainline Moss Mini Skirt. And will you look how many participants there are already- and to think you might be going it alone! Ha!

    ReplyDelete
  110. I would love to join in. I'm a beginner, so I think I will go for Colette Ginger Skirt. Sorry, I couldn't comment through my wordpress account for some reason, but I'm sewmyown.

    ReplyDelete
  140. Colette Sorbetto top - I know it's easy but as a newbie to sewing (and to blogging) I haven't got much of a back catalogue so to speak so it will involve a flurry of stitching as I am a little late to the party - really looking forward to it.

    ReplyDelete
  141. I have about 6 Colette Mabels, so I think I'll go with that pattern!

    ReplyDelete
  142. I'm joining! Undecided on the pattern though...

  171. Hi! I think I commented on the wrong post...just in case you never got it, I am IN this year! I will either be using Sew Caroline's Out and About Dress OR Hey June's Union St. Tee for the challenge. I can't make up my mind yet--and I go camping on the 6th, so I'm not sure that a dress over the weekend would be too pleasant for that!
