...a couple of days ago on Facebook someone pulled up a picture of a cape I made last winter - since a lot of people really "liked"it I decided to wear it today this week: first because there was a little chill factor going on at 37 degrees, and secondly because I LOVE IT! Both pieces of today's WORKWEAR are throwbacks from last winter. Here's the pattern combination that was worn on Wednesday:
McCall's 6209 & 7014
My falling madly in love with the designs that two other bloggers (Tasha & Michelle) made prompted me making the pieces. I just knew the cape was ME when I first laid eyes on Tasha's, and it was such a good thing that I was able to find some wool herringbone tweed in my stash to make a jumper similar to the the one Michelle made for her daughter - I think I would have had a complete come-a-part if I hadn't. I JUST HAD-TO-HAVE that dress! When I first wore it the thing that made me feel so good was when a co-worker said, "I saw a dress just like that at the Ralph Lauren store this weekend, did you get it there?" JACKPOT! for me as far as I was concerned!
Wednesday was a very good work wear day, so on Thursday I decided the cape deserved a replay.
McCall's 5978 & McCall's 6654
This time paired with my "snow flake" knit pencil skirt and a racer cut
cowl neck racer cut top (which was frankenpatterned because I was HIGHLY obsessed with having at the time- need to make more for sure) cardi twin set I
made way back in the day.
I just love a comfortable, non-restricted work wear day, since I'm moving non-stop interacting with 69 students during the course of the day...
