I love a good round up post. I’ve been keeping a note on my phone of everything I’ve made this year and in what month which makes these round up posts even easier to write. This one is about my favourite makes of 2018. Also you can see the various changes in my hair over the last year. October 2017 I started growing my fringe out – December 2018 it’s back!
Sewaholic Liberty blouse
The oak ridge blouse was the first thing I made in 2018 and it gets pulled out of the washing machine every time it’s clean. I wear it for work and feel smart and put together. I also interviewed in this top and got the job which makes it another favourite! In fact I love it so much I’ve just cut out another.
I love this dress – at the moment I wear it for work (with a tank top underneath) but it’s a nice going out dress too.
High waisted ginger jeans
I am so over wearing low waisted jeans. I pulled my old Levi’s out and was so sick of them gaping and having to pull them up constantly. 2019 make nine will definitely have more jeans to make. Note that these photos are old, since then I’ve hemmed them and taken them in an inch at the waist.
Mandy boat tee
Another one that gets constantly pulled out of the wash and reworn. It’s definitely a weekend tee but so comfy – I need to buy some more jersey for the stash so I can add more to my wardrobe.
Out of everything this is my most favourite make for a few reasons; the first is I can wear it for work or weekend which is important, the second is that it’s a style I previously discounted and am so happy I tried it again.
Camel Rumana coat
Despite an obvious annoying issue with the coat it gets worn nearly everyday for work. I feel smart and put together – almost like I know what I’m doing!?
One takeaway from this is my most favourite makes come from the mini capsule wardrobe I did at the end of the year. I dislike them to wear but to make it’s fab because you have a few small pieces that work well together and you don’t need to think about what to wear it with. I’m definitely trying this again next year!
