7 Days of Hawthorn for OWOP 2014


Can you believe that One Week, One Pattern 2014 (OWOP) has drawn to a close already? I had so much fun and enjoyed the many compliments I received from colleagues and friends, so thank you Handmade Jane for your brilliant hostessing skills!

OWOP confirmed what I already knew - that Colette Patterns' Hawthorn is an extremely versatile pattern. However, I am surprised that it seems to divide opinion so strongly. I really don't know why, because it was lust at first sight for me. I'm pretty pleased with all five of my versions and had no problems at all mixing and matching my way through the week. I'm not a huge skirt-wearer, but Hawthorn could easily be hacked into a skirt, meaning that you could get countless of outfits from this sweet little pattern!

  2. LOVED your styling - in particular the shoes! The polka dot blouse and the Neolithic print dress were my favourites. What a great pattern - will add that to my ever growing To Do list.

  4. I love this set of outfits - you look so incredibly polished and yet relaxed at the same time! my favourite is the nana outfit with sneakers - but I am a bit quirky like that!

  9. Yes I did OWOP, I found it hard by the end of the week wearing the same thing (skirt) by the end I was longing to throw on some jeans. You did really well, looks like this pattern has given you lots of options for making and styling.

    1. Thanks Louise! I have to pick an OWOP pattern that's flexible, because I'd struggle just like you if I was too limited.

  12. Wow, I love all of your versions of the Hawthorn, although my particular faves are the spotted blouse and newest Hawthery dress! The shape of the dress really suits you and love the vintage styling! Once I get over my fear of buttonholes I'll have a go at making it now that I've seen how well it can turn out, thanks for sharing this :-)

  13. I'm super impressed with how diverse your makes are. I really wouldn't have known it was the same pattern unless you pointed it out. Great job!

  14. I can't understand why anybody wouldn't love Hawthorn. It's just gorgeous, as are all your versions - there is so much inspiration here!

  15. I love the Hawthorn too! The colour if your neolithic one is amazing and works so well with the navy cardigan. I've loved owop this year, feeling a little sad now it's over though!

  17. That's a lovely set of outfits! They all look great. I've recently overcome an irrational fear of sewing buttonholes so I think Hawthorn will have to go on my sewing list now!

    1. Thanks! It's a cute blouse, I must admit!

  20. I am in love with the cropped blouse you made - where did your already small waist disappear to? It's just so flattering.
    I hear ya on the divide......I love this dress pattern.....on other people. I am not sure if I would wear it if I made it.....I should just try it and see.

    1. Yes, give it a go! The bodice is lovely with or without the collar and you can easily replace the skirt with a different style. Or, make a cute cropped blouse ;o)

  21. All your Hawthorns are adorable! They mix and match SO well!! That purple collar less version is perhaps my favorite, such a lovely color on you!
