More correctly, I do not have a lack of Tshirts, but just a lack of me-made Tshirts. And after a few experiments I feel this dress really looks best over a form-fitting knit Tshirt and not over a blouse. So here it is again, this time over my striped Tshirt. I'm not sure the dress is as successful over a print as it is over a solid coloured Tshirt... what do you think?
Anyhoo, it should be obvious that I adore this dress and have worn it a lot over winter and hope to continue wearing it over these cooler early cool days of spring too. This should go some way to assuaging my disappointment that it is too warm to wear my new crocheted skirt already, and I had been looking forward to showing it off at least once during self-stitched September! This is often a minor problem with me, though naturally, not such a problem that I am not massively thrilled about the warmer weather! But, with my sewing and knitting projects at this time of year, I am partly stuck in "winter" mode and still envisaging projects suitable for the cooler weather, when really it is too warm to be wearing them for very long... why do I keep doing this? How do you go with thinking ahead in your seasonal wardrobe planning?
