My children are on school holidays, so I took the morning off (a bit of sewing took place in between games of scrabble). The weather is cold and miserable for the 3rd day in a row - most unusual for here! I am in the shop this afternoon.
The outfit is BWOF 4-2009-121 skirt - repeat, Jalie sweetheart green merino top - repeat, worn with the hand knitted origami cardigan from Jo Sharp Knit 7. I made the i-cord tie only recently, and think the cardigan might look better with the kilt pin I used all last year.
I am thinking more about colour. You would not know from this photograph that there is a lot of quite a vibrant green yarn through the cardigan - and the tie.. It reads as muted neutral again. I wonder if things look flatter and less colourful in a photo than in real life. Or perhaps I focus on small details rather than the overall look?
