This week I wore a few more handmade accessories. My knits also got a bit of wear too.
Day 12 – Sorbetto made from quiters cotton. I love this shirt with jeans and my yellow cardigan.
Day 12 – Teach me Fashion trousers.
Day 14 – An older A-line skirt made from charcoal suiting and a crocheted scarf. I wear this skirt all of the time. The pattern is an old spotlight branded paper pattern. It has a yoke with a centre back invisible zip. It is just the right shape for my body.
I went out for dinner with Susie later that night and swapped the skirt for a pair of jeans, but I still wore the scarf. It is the crocus bud pattern made from a ball of noro.
Day 15 – Skipper is my most successful knit so far. It is a Louisa Harding pattern and I used her cotton yarn for this project. It is just the right weight sweater forBrisbane autumn weather.
Day 16 – Friday consisted of a morning shift followed by dinner at the local bowls club with all of the parents and kids from year 4.
I started with my chocolate merino wool Kirsten Kimono tee with a pair of jeans. To work I added my boneyard shawl with a broach from the fabulous Silly Gilly. Then for the evening I swapped the shawl for my Belatrix blazer. Love this outfit.
Day 17 – A simple cowl from some AMH voile
Day 18 – Cake pavlova wrap that I finished that morning!
A few of my handmade bags got dug out too. My gym bag is the Studio Cherie departures satchel. The other hand bag is a You Sew Girl – Nicole M pattern, The Day Bag. It is the perfect size to fit my wallet, phone and even my ipad mini. I like this bag (apart from the awesome fabric it is made from) because it also has a top zip closure and keeps everything nice and safe.
My outfits this week have inspired me to (maybe) pick up a hook or the needles again. I do go through phases and working with warm wool always appeals at this time of year.
I am also inspired to look at making myself some new bags. I think that Nicole M’s new Better Bag Maker book might be heading my way soon too.
