My Seven-Week Challenge


It hit me, today, that I have exactly seven weeks left before I move. That means, exactly seven weeks to use all my fabrics (because I unfortunately can't bring them with me overseas!)

To help me stay focused, I am committing myself -- right here, right now -- to the completion of 8 projects in 7 weeks.

Is this reasonable? Maybe not.
Am I up for the challenge? Absolutely!

Details of my crazy project:

1- Make this shirt wearable. I found it at a second-hand store and I just love the round collar, the contrast between the light blue and the white, and yes, the puffy sleeves. Although I will be making them a lot less puffy and less 80's. It think it has great potential!

2- Make a 60's blouse from this mint green cotton (although this picture really doesn't do justice to its colour).

3- Turn this ankle-length wool blend skirt into a pencil skirt for winter. Also a vintage find.

4- Make the "Andrew sweater" for my boyfriend Olivier, as seen on Burda Style. This is member Kitzler's version.

5- Make something of this great 80's print fabric. A type of crepe I think.

6- Turn this dress into a top (an easy project for a little break).

7- Make something out of this print that I am absolutely in love with. I'm thinking a skirt, but I don't know yet.

8- Make a dress with this. I have a strong vision for this one!

Let me remind you: I will do all of this in seven weeks. I am counting on you, Readers, for your support and comments.

And now, as my sister would say:
Alright? Alright!


  1. I can't wait to wear the sweater.

  2. I have faith in you! You can do this!!
    I can't wait to see the results.

  3. Good luck, Adrienne. I'm sure you will succeed. I'm Andrew's roommate and Olivier's friend. Now I'm your blog's follower. :)
