I've done it. I've taken matchy-matchy to new heights.
That's the problem with making your own clothes, the amount of matching accessories are limitless. Ever since I returned home, I have been hard at work drafting patterns and sewing myself winter clothes but you will be seeing much more of that soon.
Winter has already taken its hold on Edinburgh and it is cold. Weather like this is perfect for wearing wool and I am doing just that. Woolly hat, scarf, gloves, skirt, coat and even a tie! My skirt is the same one from this post and the scarf and tie were made from the remnant fabric.
Originally I intended to make a bow tie but the wool was too thick and instead this slim tie came about. I think it gives a much needed masculine touch to the outfit. The blouse is an old favourite from Fearne Cotton at Very and my shoes and coat were both purchased in the U.S.
I am (and have been for what seems like forever) in search of the perfect Peter Pan Collar Blouse but I can't seem to find the one. I must have looked through thousands of vintage shirts in San Francisco but to no avail. Any recommendations would be gratefully received!
P.S I am working on a skirt tutorial, which I should be posting soon.
P.P.S I have finally amended my blog list to include all my current favourites.
