OWOP 14 - My Sort Of Week

The pattern I chose for the One Week One Pattern Challenge was  the Julia Cardigan by Welcome to the Mouse House.  I wasn't really great at taking pictures everyday and I thought the challenge started on Monday but instead it started on Saturday. I didn't get my warmer versions of the Julia Cardigan made so I had to abandon them near the end of the week because it was a high of 14 C here.  So here is my sort of participation. 

Day 3 - Burgundy Julia Cardigan w/ 3/4 length sleeve.  This version has a single layer collar.  I do prefer the double fold collar.  It just sits nicer but this one is still very wearable. 

 Day 4 - Yellow Longsleeve - very thin jersey fabric, double fold collar.  I made this to match a dress a wore to my cousin's wedding.

 I can see myself wearing this dress to work with my cardigan and flat shoes.  This is what it looks like.  But right now I'm on maternity leave with my kids so shorts and a tshirt is really how I wear things right now.

Day 5: Grey Long sleeve - double fold collar

I wore this with various layers all day.  We did a day trip into Toronto.  My daughter loves the train so we took the GO train in.  I wore a tank top, my Julia Cardigan, a self-made infinity scarf, and a light down vest.  We went to Ripley's Aquarium.  The kids were so fascinated by all the sea life!  It's quite an impressive place. So the only photos I have are action shots of our day!

Day 6 and 7 - It got really cold here.  I wanted to wear my handknit sweaters instead. 

Thank you to Handmade Jane is hosting a One Week One Pattern Challenge - OWAP14 .
It was fun to think about how to wear my cardigans each week.  I loved seeing some of the other garments other people chose to wear.
