Tonight’s outfit perhaps?…….
Thinking it may well be, as I was due to wear this little lot at my annual summer party the other week, but given just how floaty the sleeves are, I think even I would have had them in everything in the kitchen, so I decided against it – and a wise decision it was too!
I love these sweet little skinny jeans from Italian designers MET, but I wanted to embellish them a little bit more, so I stitched a whole load of diamante buttons and charms on them – not sure how they will wash, so it’s probably a ‘one-off’ wear for them but I can always stitch them back on again!
And here it is, my beloved ‘Engene’ (meadows) blouse! It is so very pretty and I loved every second of making this one! The material came from the US and the crocheted lace trim on the bottom was from a wonderful little shop in Lech in Austria. It cost twice as much as the rest of the materials put together, but I think it’s worth it!
I threaded some white ribbon through the crocheted lace trim, and the hearts pattern within it makes it look even prettier. The sleeves are so billowy that I love to see them floating around, so as you can see, not one to wear whilst doing anything vaguely domesticated!
The little tie at the back is a nice detail, rather than the use of a button closure……
And as I was due to wear it the day after the tragic events which took place in Norway, it seemed fitting to show my support in some way or other, so I wore my little Norge bow for a week on other clothing – it just seemed right at the time…..
And with that, I’m off to continue on some ‘development’ ideas I have rushing around my head – once I get started, I just get lost in the moment!
Many thanks for dropping by!
Stor klem og ha en god helg alle sammen!
