A Slow Start


It has been a really slow start to spring this year and so far the days have not been warm enough to entice me out of anything that has sleeves.  This top has been waiting patiently in my wardrobe for a suitable day to show it off.  Today finally we reached the dizzying heights of 23 degrees so I was able to whip off my cardigan, if briefly.  This is yet another version of New Look 6648.  This pattern certainly has been good value for money and I am not quite sick of making it yet, but not far off it.   This time I used a synthetic mesh knit which is a departure from my favoured cotton, but I loved the colour of this fabric.  It kind of reminds me of the colourful tops I admire in the Desigual range.   It also fits my current wardrobe criteria of more colour.  I think this top has every colour in it, from green, yellow, orange, red, pink, blue, purple and there may even be a little black (although strictly not a colour).  Today I am wearing it with a denim type skirt blogged about here.

  1. It DOES look like a Desigual top! You sure are getting great value out of that little pattern.. the different versions are very distinct to each other!
