I thought of this as a blue outfit with a pink cardigan, but you can’t see the blue t-shirt under the cardigan and actually, the pink dominates rather.
Scarf – Scroll Lace
Cardigan – clothes swap
Skirt – White Stuff
Tights – M&S
Boots – Timberland
Even though it’s only February and cold and wet and grey I’ve found myself pondering summer clothes recently. I was looking at the pretty little tops they have in Monsoon at the weekend and thinking that maybe I should make the effort to wear something more interesting than plain scoop-necked t-shirts this year, but then I found myself wondering about trying to jazz up some plain t-shirts myself rather than paying through the nose for ready-embellished tops. I’m thinking ribbon or braid trims, maybe crocheted/knitted/fabric flowers or little crocheted lace collars. It’s got to be worth a try, anyway – I might start with the t-shirts I have left from last summer, as most of them are worn enough that if I do mess it up completely and end up with something fit only for dusting I won’t have lost that much. My sewing machine opens up a whole world of possibilities!
(Saying that, can anyone suggest exactly how they would go about attaching crocheted flowers to a t-shirt? I suspect hand-sewing might be the best way.)
