In my last post you would have seem my brand new top - until now unnamed and unblogged.
I have decided to call this wee top the "blue Sunday" top - because its blue and the first day I wore it was a Sunday. I'm extremely imaginative.
I have to admit, this top almost didn't come into existance - I bought this fabric some time ago at fabric a brac and I was certain it needed to be a top. When the Sewaholic Belcarra Blouse was released, I was sure it was the perfect pattern for the fabric.
But it turned out I didn't really have enough fabric for the blouse, but I thought to hell with it, I'm going to make it work! Seen as the blouse is quite loose fitting I made a size smaller, cut a WHOLE lot of the length off and didn't make the binding. So its not EXACTLY a Belcarra - but its my version and I think it works.
I DO really want to make this blouse again and next time actually make more of a billowy kind of top. But I love this one for what it is.
Earlier today Rich and I took a walk in central park and it was WINDY - I was brave enough to take my jacket and cardi off for a couple of photos (but only JUST brave enough). Turns out I hated both of the full length photos anyways.
Its the end of March now and very much feeling like winter rather than Autumn. Don't let the clear blue skies fool you, we nearly got blown away walking to the park.
Here's evidence you should never doubt the strength of the wind in Wellington. I think this happened during a big storm we had last winter.
We saw this walking home and it made me smile - no doubt it used to say something like "Thank You for slowing down" and the rest of the sign has gone AWOL. But I like it just how it is.
