Thrifted Jacket & Mini-Wardrobe Contest



I bought this fully-lined wool jacket for $5 in December. It's very well made. And the fit is fabulous. I fell in love with it. But let's be realistic. It's orange! So PR is having another contest. I think I can do this.

It runs from March 1 through March 31, 2011.
This is a contest to create a 5-piece wardrobe in 4 weeks. Four of these pieces must be sewn during the contest period. The 5th piece should be something that your already own. It can be a neutral item or a hard-to-match item that needs help getting incorporated into your daily wear.
These 5 items must combine to make a minimum of 6 different outfits.
Example: 2 bottoms & 3 tops. Each top matches both bottoms. This give 6 outfits.
Example: 2 bottoms, 2 tops, & a topper (eg, a shrug). Each top matches both bottoms, & the topper goes with all. This gives 8 outfits.

I think the jacket qualifies as a hard to match item.
