As you may or may not know, the UK is having the wettest summer since records began.
I've spent the last two weeks in a daze of depression, unmotivation and... pretending I'm a plumber.
During this daze, I've been contemplating my direction of sewing - and after a good look over my wardrobe, I have decided I need to make myself some "cake". My idea of cake is some plain, "basic", or staple items that will work in multiple outfits across my wardrobe.
So I sat down with my layout pad, my black and red pens, and like a child, drew an army of redheads in red and black.
|Can you guess my favourite colours?|
The driving force behind this project is that I own very little colour in my wardrobe. I own some red dresses, but I need more... colour. I always find that black is a good way of introducing colour - simply because black goes with pretty much anything. Other colours than red will follow at some point, I promise.
Simple skirts, a red gathered skirt, black button-front gathered skirt and pencil skirt.
A red top with peter pan collar, black gathered-strap tshirt, black peplum bustier.
So, I'm sorry for the delay in real posting, but I hope that, even with this weather, everyone is powering on through the "Great British Summer"!
