Making It Work
Because summer has decided to hold on for another month, today's wardrobe Wednesday post still showcases summer attire. I must admit to being a little tired of my summer gear and trying to put together office appropriate clothing after 3 weeks on the job is getting a little monotonous. Although winter is my least favourite seasons, I must confess to looking forward just a little bit to breaking out the boots and knitwear. My winter sewing appetite has not yet been wet, so there may just be room for a couple of more summer items.
Today's making it work top comes from one of my all time favourite patterns, Vogue 1247. I know it is so, because as I type it, I can remember the pattern number off by heart. Great! More brain sludge! The skirt is another favourite and fits beautifully which is probably why it is a favourite. Comfort and good looks are always a winning combination in my book. This was made in blue linen using New Look 6918. I have discovered that open toe shoes are allowed in the office (you can never be too sure these days), so today, I am wearing beige leather wedges by Clarks.
I do have one more item to reveal before the end of March, but managed to spill something on it before I had a chance to photograph it, so watch this space!
