Since last week was an assortment of activities, I’m framing it mentally with Natalie’s Sunday Sevens.
Frame. v.t. 1. To fit or prepare and unite several parts in a regular structure or entire thing…
You know how your mind wanders whilst ironing. As I’d just been thinking “frame,” it got applied to the ironing.
- The yellow blouse had been a charity shop men’s shirt I liberated circa 2013.
- The skirt & capelet fabric was purchased in Chicago and originally made into culottes, but fabric was too stiff for the style and so it didn’t get worn.
- Then it got made into a straight skirt, and worn much more than the culottes.
- The capelet, of leftover fabric from the culottes, was a test.
The shirt’s too long to be worn as styled with the capelet at left (proportions are off), but isn’t quite so off with a solid RTW blouse instead (top, right) Yes, that yellow men’s shirt is still underneath.
Thanks to J for photos above!
- Plastic & glass bangles thrifted around chicago (2010-13)
- Earrings from california arts fair (ca. 1990’s)
- Sandals by Clarks
- Hat still in use!
And an extra photo just because I’m chuffed to have done some crocheting in colour.
Time for Sunday Sevens again, as dreamed up by Natalie of Threads and Bobbins. Why not join in? Guidelines are extremely flexible. 😉
