Oops, that was another week... As you may be able to tell from my spotty posting, I'm still feeling a bit strung out and I'm still looking forward to a holiday (despite the unpleasant weather in just about all of Europe... and no, I won't be going to any kind of exotic location)
I've been working a lot this past week, I've made progress on E's jacket, written a possibly rather important letter and I've read a wonderful novel (I don't usually recommend non-sewing related books here, but I'll make an exception for this one), The Unicorn Road by Martin Davies. It's an historical novel about a voyage to China in the Middle Ages, but it's nothing like your average historical novel. I thought it was magical, despite the fact that I noticed some inaccuracies about the Chinese society at the time (like the absence of foot-binding). Normally, such thing put me off, but the writing here was just to good to be bothered by little things like historical fact.
But, that's enough off-topic chatter. I thought I would show you some of my recent and a lot less recent creations in a different outfit.
It's my re-fashioned silk blouse, tucked into my new shorts and topped with a linen jacket which I made before I even had this blog. I put this outfit together when I was playing around with my clothes, before I actually got dressed for the day. Unfortunately, it was cold and rainy outside so there was just no way I was going to walk out of the door with those bare legs.
