Thank you everyone for the comments on my recent outfits. I wore the saffron jacket and print skirt out to lunch last weekend and my (male) friend said to me " that's the nicest I've seen you look in a long time" !!! I suppose there is a compliment in there somewhere!
Sometimes a fabric just tells you what it wants to be and that's what happened with the embroidered black and white cotton I bought recently. I made another version of the easy skirt - BWOF 03/2008-105. I added in a silk satin lining and omitted the belt detail on this one. This one proves what a versatile pattern this is, I can wear this all year round by pairing it with different garments. And I can make it up in a few hours, I'm sure there will be a version 3 before too long.
Here is the summer look;
Here is the winter look, this is my favourite, I almost can't wait for cooler weather to arrive. I'm wearing it with the Vogue Montana denim jacket that I made earlier this year.
I'm also rather impressed with my seam matching and invisible zipper on the centre back!

Wow... I really like this combi. I had a longer look at your Montana jacket - and it really knocked me off my feet, so much so, that I think I might try it myself.ReplyDelete
I also like your craftsmanship - the matching seams on the zipper are great, really like your projects!
