Self - Stitched September 10

September 10th

Today I am at work again.
The trousers are the cream BWOF ones I have worn already for SSS. Cream is not really a good colour for me in trousers, as I am a messy person. These seem to have a stain on the right thigh already. Maybe this is because the photo today was taken at lunch time. Hmmm
The blouse is Simplicity 2501, in a Japanese cotton print from Schack's Fabric, Indooropilly. I have written about the construction of a cream version here. I had not thought of wearing this patterned one to work when I made it, as it is sort of girly, but I think I need to be a little more flexible with my work wardrobe.

Like this one too!! I made S2501 4 times this summer and I love the pattern. Your choice of prints is pretty and not too girly for work, IMO

I like this more feminine work getup, and I still think you should put a little more colour in. Can you wear a scarf or a necklace or bracelets? Although I think yesterday's was also quite nice! Must have been the blouse :-)

I love the blouse! Definitely not too girly for work. The print is girly but the colors are neutral for work. (Not that I go by that rule in my work wardrobe!)
