My OWOP Week

Hoorah for OWOP - what a fab week it was! I hope you all survived wearing multiple versions of the same pattern each day. Here's my week wearing vintage blouse pattern Simplicity 4238 - via the wonderful medium of photography...



Day 1 - gingham Hillbilly blouse and Kelly skirt with a Vivien of Holloway belt and cherry brooch. I added the belt as the top two buttons on this skirt are a real pain. The belt keeps them in check and I love how it looks.




Day 2 - 1950's polka dot blouse with Gertie Capri pants, Clarks clogs (from years ago) and Kate Spade bag during a family walk around Richmond Park.




Day 3 - Betty Draper blouse with red denim Delphine skirt. Everything had been very blue and denim up until this point, hence the injection of red!




Day 4 - 1950's white blouse with wide-legged trousers and Vivien of Holloway belt. This was a nice outfit but I felt a bit waitressy with the white and grey combo. The belt helps to break it up a little.




Day 5 - 1950's polka dot blouse and Miette skirtI have to confess, I misjudged the weather on this day and had to perform a costume change mid-afternoon. As lovely as my Miette skirt is, it's floaty and linen and not very warm, so for the second half of the day I wore my Gertie capri pants…. and a cardi!




Day 6 - Betty Draper blouse and Orla Kiely cardigan. This blouse is made from Liberty Tana lawn, so it's highly appropriate that this (slightly bonkers looking) selfie, with my lovely friend Joe, was taken outside Liberty. We couldn't believe the extortionate prices on that flower stall!!




Day Seven - 1950's white blouse with green John Smedley cardigan, Anthropologie necklace and Gap jeans. I fancied a bit of unexpected colour for the last day of OWOP!

Woohoo, we did it! I'm absolutely staggered by the number of people who participated this year - over 250 at the last count!!! That's over twice the number of participants than when I compiled my ground breaking charts, so I may have to redo them (gulp!) I'm curious to know if the same pattern companies continue to crop up.  Anyway, enough about graphs, I want to share my reflections of the week with you:

  • By choosing a blouse pattern, I felt that I had a lot more styling options. I could choose skirts or trousers each day - what a luxury! Fabric choice definitely plays a big part in the success of the garment. The two versions made with top quality fabrics (the 1950's polka dot blouse and the Betty Draper blousestill look virtually brand new. Sadly the same can't be said for the gingham Hillbilly blouse, which may have to be retired soon as the shoddy fabric is struggling to look good. I love having a gingham version though, so I'll just have to make another one!
  • My 1950's white blouse is not made from a practical fabric. It's almost impossible to get the creases out  so it was a bit of a pain to wear to be honest. Plain white blouses are infinitely practical however, so I'm quite tempted to make a second white one in a more everyday fabric.
  • I'm never going to be that adventurous with accessories, but I did discover a really useful belt in my wardrobe this week and got to try out a new colour combination. This was the green/turquoise combo on the last day, slightly inspired by this picture on Pinterest.
  • And finally…. I still like the pattern! As we all know, you can sometimes have too much of a good thing, which is what I was afraid might happen over the week. Luckily it didn't, I still love all the vintage details on this pattern and it's very flattering. I've already got plans for a few more versions of it.

But how did you get on? I'd love to read about your own reflections on OWOP, so if you've blogged about your week or have a photo set, please leave a link in the comments section of this post. 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 in the comments.

Thank you to everybody who participated in this challenge, I've had a blast! And don't be shy now - leave me your links so I can read ALL about it!! x

  2. You have some lovely versions of your blouse, I especially like the polka dot one. Thanks so much for arranging OWOP14 (and the amazing giveaways). It's my first time participating and I really enjoyed wearing my handmade clothes all week. And I still love the pattern at the end of the week (thankfully!). Here's a link to a summary on my blog http://justsewfun.wordpress.com/2014/09/13/owop14-summary/

  4. Jane, you did such an awesome job running OWOP! Your outfits look great - I particularly like day 7, it reminds me of Emma Pillsbury, which is obvs a good thing. Love the selfie too - you look beautiful, and I must say your friend Joe is rather handsome.

    OWOP was possibly too easy for me as I wore Coco, which is basically what I wear everyday anyway! Maybe next time I'll try a different pattern to challenge myself with styling etc.

  11. I love your choices and all the variations are fab. I chose the Belcarra for my pattern. I don't make too many clothes for myself normally but with this hot summer I made 3 Belcarras and found them very useful. As I don't have to go to work anymore (hurray) I don't have many skirts and I think this style would look great with a pencil skirt. I just don't do 'smart' as it doesn't suit my lifestyle. Here is the link to my Flicker group photos.

  18. I love your blouse - I have been haunting ebay for a while looking for a version in my size. This was my first OWOP and I really enjoyed it - though it felt good to throw on jeans today after a week of skirts!

    I really enjoyed seeing where people had been able to do a range of different things with a pattern - really liked Marie's Hawthorns. I love my NL 6843 skirts and I wear them regularly but this has encouraged me to try to look beyond the pattern envelope!

  23. Hi Jane! What a fun week! Thank you for all your work to get this going! I love all your blouses. Especially the crisp bright white one. And of course the dots. Oh and the sweet floral! I'm waiting for stripes next. I spent my week in New Look 6723 dresses. I still like the pattern but after seeing them all together I'm starting to think about a straighter skirt… Check it out at www.adressofmyown.com

    I've even realized that if I've made two of the same pjs from different patterns, that maybe I REALLY like the fabric and I should just go ahead and make a 3rd set (there's still fabric in the stash). I'm going to slash up the one that doesn't fit and make it into a top, and then maybe make matching pants with the stash fabric. Scrap-tember :)

  40. Thank you so much for this week. It motivated me to make 2 new versions of the Lady Skater dress, made me realise how much better I'm getting at this sewing lark, but surprised me to realise that everything was made in blue. The biggest challenge of all was taking photos every day - and sharing them. I don't blog (yet) but I posted daily on my Facebook page, and was thrilled by the reception the pictures got from my friends. I even shared a rear view on my last day!! In the end I had 2 dresses, one tshirt hack and one sleeveless top hack of the Lady Skater, and having a mix of tops and dresses made it easier to survive the week. Have uploaded them to my flickr page https://www.flickr.com/photos/124879145@N04/sets/ Huge thanks for organising OWOP, it's been brill xx

  43. Nice work, Jane! You made that look easy! I guess part of our love for a good TNT is as much about getting the fit right as it is about how comfortable it is & how well it suits us. Your top melds perfectly with the rest of your wardrobe- WIN!

    I chose a separate as well- I stuck with the Moss Mini in the end. I think separates are the best for this challenge- so many more possibilities with outfits. My post is at http://rennous-oh-glennus.tumblr.com/post/97339161681/same-same-but-different-owop-2014

  52. Love all of these blouses on you Jane. This was my first time and I really enjoyed the experience. I chose Colette's Ginger skirt which worked well, but thank heavens we had a bit of late Summer sun, I would have been frozen otherwise. Totally agree with you on the fabric front, while cheaper fabrics work brilliantly now and again, it's the stuff I paid just a little more for that lasts the distance :-)

    Thank you so much, Jane, for hosting this challenge. It's been a fun week, and it's really helped to push me to make a few more woven tops, which has been an excellent addition to my wardrobe. And it's great to see how other people wear and style their me-mades and how they can use one pattern in such a variety of ways.

  75. While I had 4 Jalie jeans to wear, I only wore 3 of them. There weren't enough days to do them all justice.

    Your blouses were an excellent choice. They're all so versatile.

  76. While the weather didn't cooperate (1st world problems), I still managed. http://finishedthread.blogspot.ca/2014/09/owop-sewaholic-hollyburn.html
    Thanks for organizing this.

  77. Definitely a fun week! I ran into a bit of a snag towards the end because we went on a mini vacation where it was much cooler, so while I wore my shirts as planned (except on day 6), they tended to be under a sweatshirt or other layers. I posted separately throughout the week since I was without internet connection when OWOP ended. You'll see up through day 5. http://danandamyhess.blogspot.com/

  78. Hi lovely lady, I enjoyed this week SO MUCH. Thanks a squillion for taking on the mantel of organising it this year. I really hope that it happens again next year. I love your blouses, so great to have a top that looks so good with skirts and trousers alike. That polka dot version in particular has stolen my heart! I think you saw my OWOP post, but here is the link: http://sozowhatdoyouknow.blogspot.co.uk/2014/09/one-week-one-pattern-14-complete.html

    thanks again, Zoe & Dolores xxx

  79. Thanks so much for hosting, Jane! It was a great week, and taught me that I definitely need to get a lot more blouses in my life- wearing skirts all week with very limited tops to wear it with was tricky!

  81. I managed the letter (wore the same pattern every day) but not really the spirit (away, so no sharing and next to no photos). I did post about it though: http://craftalchemy.wordpress.com/2014/09/16/one-week-one-pattern/

  82. Well done for taking on this huge task - and for the giveaways. I love the blouse pattern you used - very versatile. I'll have to look for something similar to make some plain tops to go with my loud skirts! Here's my OWOP round up post

  83. I really love your outfits and the range of items you managed to work into your outfits, which I guess is the benefit of choosing a separate. I loved taking part and thank you so much for commenting - really appreciated it!
    I love your yellow skirt and your day 7 outfit is probably my favourite.

  85. You were brave choosing a sleeveless blouse in September. Thanks for hosting OWOP. Here's my belated blog post http://rollingeyeballs.blogspot.co.uk/2014/09/one-week-one-pattern-summery-summary.html

  86. thanks Jane, i really enjoyed taking part, though foolishly chose a pattern i only had one of at the start of the week. By the end though i had two! yay! Had a lot of fun styling my outfits.. seem to have forgotten to do this in recent years (in my 20's i styled & matched everything) but now have rediscovered it and a love of wearing scarves around my waist!

  87. Here's a link to my OWOP round up. I decided at the last minute to use my Wiksten Tanks instead of my originally planned Scout Tees because it was so darn hot. It definitely made for more of a challenge because I only had three of them!
