Today I am stepping out of my comfort zone and wearing layers - short over long. This is not a look I have attempted previously, feeling that I do not need the bulk (or usually the warmth) of this style. When I put on this summer tank top (hand knit cotton - Jo Sharp Knit 5) (posted about here) over my new Burda Style 08-2010-112 cotton-lycra knit top, I felt a bit like someone playing dress ups, but have decided after much encouragement from my teenage daughters that it is merely slightly fashionable (in rural Queensland, fashionistas, so spare me New York, London and Sydney up to the minute stuff!).
The skirt is my denim version of BWOF 4-2009- (posted about here). On reading this post I see that I was not sure about this skirt when I first made it, but having worn it all the time for 18 months now, I can let you know that it was a real success. It seems that I am very wary of new things. Note to self: I must try more new patterns.
