During the month of November, I documented and shared my outfits on Instagram. The process of documenting and reflecting is a great tool to reassess my sewing needs. I have been trying to thoughtfully create garments that suit me and fill holes in my wardrobe.

Thanks for reading and for following my month of handmade outfits. At the end of the month, I have removed a few items from my wardrobe which I no longer wear. These will be given to my mum or friends.
Pictured are a top and skirt which have been altered from dresses which had fit issues or were a poor fabric choice. It’s great to breathe new life into these two items which will become part of my regular rotation.
Kirsten and I are planning on taking part in the 10 x 10 challenge in January so this information from this month will help me decide on my garments for the challenge.
