As the years go by and my closet fills with more and more hand made pieces, I take every opportunity to play matchmaker.
Purple and teal are probably my favorite color combination, most likely due to the fact that I love purple, and I love teal – put them together and I love them even more!
The jacket was created as part of an outfit, and each time I wear it I remind myself that I keep meaning to make another version. Who knows when I will get around to that!
The dress is another Vintage Vogue reproduction. It is a definitely a summer frock, but before I put it to bed for a few months, I though I would pair it back with the teal velveteen blazer.
And now I feel like I need another circle skirt or two and a couple of new short sleeved jackets. Actually, there really needs to be a whole lot less dreaming up new garments, and a whole lot more sewing. I have been lazy, lazy, lazy for the last couple of weeks – it probably has something to do with the ridiculously cold temperatures (which seems to have improved in the past twenty-four hours)!
