Eeeeep, happy OWOP (One Week, One Pattern) everyone! I'm attempting to get through the whole week wearing five versions of Colette Patterns' Hawthorn. Three of which you've already seen and two of which are brand new for the occasion. I won't be blogging each day, but I will be sharing my outfits daily on Twitter, with a round-up of them all at the end of the week.
I do have one of my new Hawthorns to show you today though, which was also my Day 1 outfit! I followed this nifty tutorial for making a cropped blouse and I really like it! I only wish I had washboard abs to wear it 'properly', but I'm loving it layered up for now.
I just about managed to squeeze this out of less than a yard of vintage fabric. I bought it ages ago on Etsy and was beginning to give up hope of finding something suitable to make with it due to the yardage. I'm so happy I managed it, the two are a match made in heaven. I even found the perfect vintage buttons for it in my stash. Don't you love it when everything comes together so effortlessly?
There's nothing really to say on fit and construction that I haven't already covered here or that the tutorial doesn't go into. What I can say though is that I particularly adore how this cropped Hawthorn blouse nips the waist in. It makes mine look seriously small (please ignore the junk in the trunk) and I can seriously get down with any clothing that does that.
How are you getting on with OWOP so far?
