OWOP is back!

Hands up who remembers OWOP (One Week, One Pattern)? Of course you do, it's the group sewing challenge where participants wear variations of the same pattern, every day for a week! The original challenge was created by Tilly in 2012, I resurrected it in 2014 and now Hannah from Cinderellis Sews is hosting a new challenge for 2016. Hoorah! 
My favourite part of both challenges was working out all the different mix and match combinations with my chosen pattern. In 2012 I chose the Colette Ginger skirt, a high waisted A-line skirt that proved to be endlessly versatile. For the last challenge I went for a vintage pattern - Simplicity 4238 - a 1950's button up blouse that's become a real wardrobe staple.


The big question is, what to choose this time round? You may have noticed I've been more than a little obsessed with New Look 6217 of late (I have three versions of the top and two versions of the skirt), so that's currently the strongest contender. However, I also absolutely LOVE my Sewaholic Granville shirts and although I only have two versions (here and here) they're both solid colours, so they match absolutely everything. The Granville shirt would certainly be a greater challenge, but may be a bit too similar to the last pattern, what do you think?


If you'd like to join in, One Week, One Pattern 2016 will run from Saturday 10th September until Friday 16th September. You can sign up and find out further details about OWOP on Cinderellis Sews. There will also be a series of exciting guest posts on her blog over the next few weeks (including ME on August 6th!) and fabulous giveaways for every day of the challenge. Wahay! x

  2. I agree...the New Look pattern top is very flattering. I had never heard of the OWOP and it sounds intriguing! So if you are new to this, that means you need to sew quite a bit before then...

    1. Thank you! The object of the challenge is to wear garments you've already repeat sewn. But for some people it's a good excuse to make another version (or two!) of a well loved pattern that works for them! x

  3. New Look every time,so many looks from so few pattern pieces. I use this pattern time and again. I love the fact the pattern suits all ages, i'm 65 but the finish item looks so pleasing when worn.

  4. This time round it is facilitated by Hannah from Cinderellis Sews. The test is to wear a Tried and True design - one you've made bunches of times, wear all the time and so on - consistently for seven days. dissertation proposal writing service
