Handmade Travel Outfits 5-5.5

18 Apr

Last day–

And in keeping with the theme, I wore the same skirt two ways. What’s more, I kind of invented the skirt on the fly. I took out the yellow cotton underskirt from last week’s knitting project, and declared that a finished skirt, all on its own…

and wore it first with an older cotton hand-knit sweater (pattern: “Orangina“) for a morning appointment (with red flats), and then later with my Butterick b5497 and Jambu sandals, for tromping about town, as well as for the return trip home.


And that concludes this particular journey, completed in all clothing I made for myself. Time to settle in back home, and get out the sewing machine (and knitting needles) to see what turns up, next.

    Nice remix, taking the lining from your knitted skirt. And a great way to wear yellow if you can’t wear it near your face. Not that you can’t… 🙂

      Oh, I certainly can’t! But it’s such a fun color, I didn’t want to hide it away. (I was also feeling the effects of oncoming summer, for sure!)

    Wow, what a great idea, and lovely outfits!

    I’m planning to knit a lot of tops for myself (and start sewing really simple skirts), because I want to wear only what I’ve made for one month.

      Sounds like a great challenge. It’s a good way to get in touch with the projects that work, vs. those that are fun to make but don’t really fit into one’s lifestyle.
