MY WARDROBE CHALLENGES FOR 2018 IS:

  • I can not buy new made clothes, except underwear and socks.
  • The maximum pair of shoes i can buy is four (it went a bit creasy in 2017)
  • I have to use 15 pieces of fabric from my starch before I can buy new.
  • All I make or buy for my wardrobe needs to be documented with a photo and price right here. This way I can make a status at the end of 2018.

In January I have also made a dress of an amazing piece of fabric from my favorite fabric store fabric minds. I call this dress for my hippie dress. The dress is made of three different How to do fashion sewing patterns. No. 1 Dragør for the bodice, No. 6 København as the skirt and for the sleeve I have used No. 12 aalborg.

I have also finished this knitted sweater made from this pattern. I have made some modifications to the neckline. But what makes this sweater is the bow.

Prize: 80 euro

In this month I have bought some stuff. Both “legal” things but I have cheated, just because I forgot about the deal I made with myself. Woops
I have bought a raincoat. I know I could have made one myself, but I can not make one of the same quality as them you can buy, and here in Denmark it rains a lot. So, I made a quick decision and bought what I think will be my most.

Status January:
I'm happy with what I've been sewing in January. My purchases this month became a little more than budgeted. So I have to save the next couple of months.

I have spent a total of 6577.5 euros. However, it should be said that the fabric I bought last year, and it is from the stash. The yarn I bought in December, where I also started the sweater
