... of sorts. Not a repeat of any actual garments, per se, and btw I am not consciously trying to avoid repeats during self-stitched September at all, because I've decided that would be silly. I just want to wear what I want to wear, y'know? But I am wearing exactly the same pattern combination as I did last Friday, coincidentally. That is; the twist top from Pattern Magic; this is the cream version and last Friday I was wearing my charcoal version. And Burda 7863 jeans; today the purple denim version whereas last Friday I had on my black corduroy version. So, different enough?
And I whacked the scarf on just because I thought the outfit was a tad bland without it, it needed just some extra bit of colour, or something, somewhere.
I just love this scarf, rapidly becoming one of my everyday favourites and it was fair dinkum one of the easiest things ever... just a French seam joining two ginormously long strips; from a pitifully unwanted 80cm remnant of thin soft jersey. Just goes to show, whilst much pleasure can be gained from a long-term beautifully constructed garment (and it is a rare seamstress who does not aspire to a sartorial work-of-art every once in a while) sometimes the simplest of things can turn out pretty wonderful too. So moral of the story; always check out those remnant bins. There may be a fabulous potential scarf sitting in there with your name on it...
