I was all set to wear my new blouse to work today - and it is pink, to add some colour, but unfortunately, I did not like it with these trousers. I whipped it off and took in the side seams in the last frantic 15 minutes before leaving for work, but it did not fix the problem, so here you have yet another cream blouse - Simplicity 5201 this time (post about it here), with the tropical wool BWOF 4-2009-118 pants again.
The scarf is a bit of a cheat. I wore it on the way to work, but took it off almost straight away when I got there, as it was annoying me when I leant over.(I put it back on for the lunchtime photo shoot). Readers, you are right, it makes the self imposed uniform of cream and beige more interesting.
To answer some questions, I live in rural Queensland. We are, however, having fairly Canberra weather at the moment, which is very peculiar.
I will remain mysterious about my main job. Please forgive me for keeping secrets. I have a professional job in a country town, so my life is rather fishbowl already (no dashing off to the supermarket in tracksuit pants for me). I do not think my non-sewing colleagues, staff or clients would understand the trouser fitting photographs, so would rather they not find them if googling my name, town or profession!
