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!

  4. great work outfit. I know what you mean about the pattern numbers ,I can see an outfit on the net and know what pattern was used ( perhaps not the numbers ).One of my jobs means I can no longer wear open toed shoes because apparently it means we can not escape quickly enough -( this is a mental health job ) so sure wearing closed toe stilettos will be much better !( not that I own any )
