One Week One Pattern 2017


This week I took part in One Week One Pattern for the third time. If you are not familiar with this event it was started by Tilly of Tilly and the Buttons, who launched it in 2012, it was then run by Handmade Jane in 2014 and Hannah from Cinderellis Sews last year and this year it has been run by Sewisfaction.

As you may already know from my previous posts this week I chose to wear the By Hand London Charlotte skirt. I have made four versions of the Charlotte skirt and posted about the construction of the different variations here, here, here and here. I guess you are supposed to wear your chosen pattern for the full week but I decided to focus on Monday to Friday because of the more formal choice of pattern. This is not the type of thing I would wear on the weekend to do house chores, errands and general chilling out in.

The photos below show how I styled my skirts with several Uniqlo merino wool turtle neck jumpers, gap t-shirt, Marimekko scarf, Tatty Devine Teeth necklace and on Friday one of my favourite festive jumpers (because December!).

  1. Those are all very beautiful version of the pattern and I like how different they look in different fabrics. Thanks for showing them :)

  2. Caroline! I thought about you the other day - how's things? Great collection of Charlotte skirts you have there, particularly like the check one with the pink (fuchsia?) jumper. Anyway long time no see, glad you made it through OWOP, I found it really hard work! I used the Tilly Buttons Agnes top. Hope you are well and enjoying the start of the festive season. xx

  3. They're all lovely, the patterns you've chosen really suit you and the design. Did anyone at work guess you were doing this challenge?

    1. Hi Clare - nobody at work guessed the skirts were the same pattern with different fabrics. I tol few people when they asked me if I made my skirts (my work colleagues are getting to know my hand-made wardrobe now).

  5. This is such a flattering style on you, I'm not surprised you've made 4.
    I love your festive jumper, I have a similar one, all red and white, and I'm always excited when it's time to break it out!
