One Week, One Pattern officially kicks off today, but because I'm saving all my outfit posts for the end of the week, I thought I'd tantalise you with my latest Renfrews for the project. Including my tiger-print and basic versions, I now have five Renfrews to play with. I'm really looking forward to mixing and matching them to achieve different looks and I'm hoping that the project will teach me a few things about myself too.
I really didn't think I'd be a fan of the V-necked Renfrew on me, but actually it's pretty flattering. I think using a light and drapey jersey had something to do with this as well.
For once I can say that this hangs better on me than the dummy!
I'm over the moon that I accidentally managed to get the stripes to match up in most places.
This next version is probably my favourite Renfrew as I'm a sucker for a pretty floral print...I just can't resist it! Being a serial under-buyer of fabric is not always a bad thing, but I found out that you really can't squeeze a Renfrew out of one metre, not even a short-sleeved one. Hence, I had to piece the back of this one, which I can totally live with as it doesn't look bad at all. I also had to add a different band to the bottom and after toying with the idea of plain grey, I'm so glad I went for the stripey option. It's a really cool detail, making this Renfrew really unique.
Do you like the stripey band at the bottom?
I really don't think the pieced back is offensive...do you?
So, who else is playing along with OWOP? Did Tilly's Fascinating Statistical Analysis excite you as much as it did me?
