My Wardrobe Contest Entry

March 12, 2018

I think I’m finally done. I finished sewing everything yesterday and then today we got 5 inches of snow and school was cancelled. This gave me time to get the pictures taken and the entry submitted.

I’m calling this collection “Springtime in the Mountains.” Boonetowne is in the mountains of western North Carolina. We are 3300 feet above sea level. Our altitude and location produce springtime weather with lots of variability. One day it’s sunny and 65 degrees and the next day we are getting a winter storm. This wardrobe is designed for a mountain springtime. It has options for sunny days and snowy days.

I made three tops (Jalie 3667, Butterick 6378, Butterick 5526), two bottoms (Simplicity 8175, Ottobre 5/2015-9), and one topper (Jalie 3675).

These six garments actually produce a total of 12 different outfit options. And now I’m going to show you every single option–feel free to skim or leave this blog at any time.

Last but not least, here’s a video where I talk about each of the garments that I made for this contest. It’s almost seven minutes long, so watch at your own risk!!!!

This was a fun contest!! I loved every minute of it!
