Hello again lovely chums,
I think I'm finally getting my blogging groove back, and, having decided to worry less about writing informative educational type posts and spend more time having fun with this thing, I thought I'd treat you to a little outfit post. When I say treat, its really just lots of pictures of me, so that all depends on how much you like looking at my big ugly mug really.
Anyway, Autumn is here. Hurrah! Time to stash the cotton frocks in tissue paper and dig out the tweed. To celebrate the start of the tweed and wool season I have spent most of this weekend finishing up a huge pile of knitting projects that have been building up over the Summer. The jacket in the picture is one I've been waiting to finish for some time, I just had to sew on the collar and the buttons, but for some reason (read: sheer laziness) its been sitting on my dressmakers dummy for months.
Swagger and Swoon.
It really is a lovely piece in pure silk, cotton backed. Deep green with purple and gold paisley. I'm quite in love with it and I think it adds the perfect 30s country "butch" style to my outfit. I feel just like Honoria Glossop from the Jeeves and Wooster novels. Never a bad thing in my book. I may have to pick up a few more of them as they really set off an outfit.
Anyway - that's all for now. Off to pretend I'm clay pigeon shooting or something equally Honoria-like.
Edit: totally reattaching that collar. I did it completely wrong. That's what happens when you lose your copy if the pattern between knitting and making up!
