Here’s that cotton jersey mentioned earlier in the week in some comments – the one with the “tinternet” colour problem! It’s a lovely soft fabric, but I don’t care for the colour. So am thinking a skirt, with a blouse of something mustardy that matches that part of the tiny figure, which is kinda cute.
Or maybe the Style Arc dress pattern (below) with mustard top & sleeves, and the purpley fabric as the body of the dress? Brooke, dear person & manager of The Fabric Store-LA, has pulled together some samples, including some mustards. Can’t wait for them to arrive!
What do you all think about a not-my-colour fabric, Lovely & Experienced Readers? Ever had a similar quandary? What did you do?!
Thinking Winter wardrobe, I acquired these patterns from Style Arc, in Melbourne – city of Phryne Fisher/Corinna Chapman & their author Kerry Greenwood. I do love my 2 long skirts from last Winter, but need a few more pieces, and am hoping to add greens, which are sparse. Ummm…
Watched an old Avengers on a retro telly station, and couldn’t believe what I saw – Emma Peel, wearing a mid-thigh woven variation of Papercut‘s Circle Top! Hers was more a cape that closed diagonally off-centre, with the volume belted/buttoned front & back, so she could do some judo without the back swinging round to meet her when she twirled. Will feel quite retro this Winter whilst wearing a jersey version… if only I had her figure! 🙂
