Choir Wardrobe 8/24/14

A little vacation gettaway pulled me away from the blogsphere for a bit, but I'm back now and trying to see about creating new routines...which is typical after a little bit of refreshment. 

I've missed most of August...and next week My Sweet Babboo and I have duties that will pull us out of choir, so it looks like this is it for the month of emerald, navy and tan.

But I did get inspired to finish new stuff! 

I wish I'd've done the arms-straight-out pose, so you could really see the sheer jacket, but if you look close you can see it. I actually wore coordinates today...the Plaza jacket and pants from Sewing Workshop.  The pants are midnight blue tropical weight wool, and the jacket is a poly burnout that's been in the stash for ages and ages.  Not a fabric I would buy now, as I've learned even lightweight poly is HOT and STINKY, but I thought it would do nicely for a topper when navy is on the choir list.  And sheer cocoony jackets are kinda 'in' at the moment, so it was a good project.  The T is my fave Jalie-still-gotta-review-it twinset t, made from navy rayon jersey.

The blues don't match, but that's the trend now, right?  Avoid the too matchy-matchy?? 

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.


  1. Yeah, I did miss seeing your outfit. Hope you had a great vacation!

  2. Ooh, ooh, the Plaza Jacket and Pant is one of my all-time favorites! I must have made the pants at least 10 times in the past two years. Easy to pull on and off, the legs are not too wide and not too narrow -- and the jacket folds absolutely flat for easy packing. Made mine in a natural tussah silk, and the unlined, single layer jacket is warmer than you'd believe. Your navy ensemble will serve you well, choir tour or no choir tour.
