Well we have the first week over and it seems I’ve been a little premature getting my summer dresses out. We’ve had a couple of good days but instead of sandals I’ve been relying on my boots.
Anyway, here’s the run down:
This is possibly my on the project work uniform!
Colette Hawthorn (unblogged)
Had wanted to wear something a bit more summery but it was cold and windy so decided on my winter Hawthorn as it’s one of my warmest dresses.
Sunday pottering around dress
Marilla Walker Evan Skirt with stripy Deer and Doe Plantain
Bank holiday Monday, generally pottering with a bit of sewing time.
Combination of work and running around trying to catch up with all the things that usually get done on a Monday!
On the project and a variation on the Miette, with an Archer instead.
Cold and windy again so out came the boots, black ones this time though!
Musings so far:
- There has only been two days out of the week that I didn’t wear Grainline or Deer and Doe, I have made other patterns!
- I rely heavily on my Hemlocks and Plantains, I didn’t realise how heavily until seeing the evidence! (I have made a couple of Maria Denmarks’ Kimono tees so I am starting to be a little more adventurous)
- I like the stripes with the Chardon, I couldn’t find my black Plantain which I usually wear with it and just grabbed the first thing that came to hand. Quite like the idea of using stripes as a neutral.
- I could probably do with more than one pose although in my defence the bathroom is north facing and I’m trying to turn towards the light!
