I have to say though that I was so completely in love with my Spring and Summer wardrobe this year and how easy it was to always looked pulled together, that I was inspired to continue the run into the new season.
From time to time, I get requests from you guys to do OOTD (outfit of the day) posts. I've done a couple this year but generally haven't done them because I don't feel like I have enough "good" clothes to support that. SOOOOOO . . . I decided to at least attempt to kill two birds with one stone. In an effort to hold myself accountable, I will start to post OOTD posts more frequently. They by no means will be be on a daily basis and some weeks you might not even get a post but I will at least be more motivated to pull things together and not just reach for things to keep me covered and warm and dry.
Here's is the first piece that I am working on for my new Fall wardrobe.
This is McCall's 5889 which is an OOP pattern but there are a few similar ones out there right now. I plan on making two pair this weekend including one made from a wool blend gabardine with a slight stretch and another in a gray ponte knit. The pattern only has two main pieces, front and back, and an optional working draw string which I am leaving off because I don't see the need for it with the elastic waist.
I do have some other outfits lined up but you should see these pretty soon.
