One Week, One Pattern: March 24th through 30th
This week I joined Tilly at Tilly at the Buttons in the One Week, One Pattern challenge. Our goal: to wear garments created from a single pattern for an entire week. I chose the Sewaholic Renfrew since it pretty much rocks (and since I’ve made three).
March 24, 2012
What: The Linen Knit Renfrew with orange pants and a denim jacket
Where: To see the Hunger Games. My orange pants were the best way I could think of to celebrate the girl on fire while wearing a Renfrew. To complete the look, I put my hair back in a braid, à la Katniss.

What: The Stripey Renfrew with jeans
Where: A day at the park with friends from out of town, including a crazy bocce tournament where the next point always tied and the most fun game of croquet I’ve ever played.
March 26, 2012
What: The Linen Knit Renfrew under a sweater with jeans and a scarf
Where: To work. I have some crazy upcoming work deadlines, and with friends in town this past weekend and travel this coming weekend, I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to pull off OWOP!, but at this point in the week, I was confident that I could. Now to get back to those work deadlines…

What: The Oatmeal Cowl Renfrew with a brown tweed skirt and boots
Where: To work. Then to watch an episode of A Game of Thrones with friends. It was a good day to dress up since I needed a little pick-me-up. My quiet little street had been awoken in the wee hours of the morning by a stabbing. Twice in a month my backyard has been a crime scene. Crazy.

What: The Linen Knit Renfrew with wide-leg green pants and a black cardigan.
Where: To work. Data crunching all day long.
March 29, 2012
Where: To work. Another long day of data crunching getting ready for a deadline early next week.
March 30, 2012
Where: To visit my family. The highlight: my baby niece. Work is still on the mind, but it’ll be nice after so many long nights to have a bit of downtime this weekend.
The End Reflections:
I thoroughly enjoyed myself this week. Basing my outfits around three tops forced me to think beyond my typical jeans, not only to other more neglected pants but also to skirts. I got quite a few compliments when wearing the tweed skirt in particular. I will definitely be making more Renfrews soon, and I should consider making a pattern from the tweed skirt as well. Thanks, Tilly, for bringing the online sewing community together. Until the next OWOP…
