Work Wear 9 - The Gray Scale Scarf
Oh well. I'm sure you'll get the idea.
Mostly, I just wanted to put together something that allowed me wear the newly-hemmed gray scale silk scarf.
I'm getting bolder in my old age; there have been times past in which I would've shuddered with horror at the idea of combining the graphic print with the striped pants. Now I think it's kinda fun.
RTW sweater shell; modified Loes Hinse Oxford pants in a pinstripe RPL topped off with Silhouette Pattern's Robins Jacket in wool flannel, finished off with plain ol' Wrights bias tape.
Wasn't thrilled with the way I tied the scarf, but I couldn't come up with a better way to do it in the time I had available this morning. Square scarves are not quite as easy to wear these days as long rectangles...
Anyway, that was a silk panel print that came from...Fabric Mart? I think? ...about a year and a half ago. I wanted to hand roll it but couldn't get the technique down well enough to suit me. So I wrangled it through the rolled edge foot on the sewing machine and will keep practicing on the scraps that I trimmed away to square it up. Someday...I will have a hand rolled scarf...
