All good things come in threes + matching accessories

22 Dec

I’ve had my eye on this Sun Spots lawn since the collection was released in the summer. I decided to treat myself to it and make my third Biscayne blouse seeing as versions 1 &2 were such smash hits. As with the last two, I’ve merged size small for the top half of the blouse, grading out to medium at waist and hips. This time however I decided to forgo the pocket. There isn’t much more I can say about the pattern except that I love it  – the instructions are great and the design is perfect! I know sleeveless isn’t idea given the chilly weather that has descended upon London, but with a cardigan it works pretty good. Although it was a beautiful warmish day when I took these photos which made it possible to go without the cardigan (for a few minutes at least).

Plus I had enough scraps left over to make myself a matching headscarf. I’ve decided to go my hair out and its at an awkward phase, so I’ve recently began wearing little scarfs to tie the unruly mess back. I decided to add two little pompoms to the ends for a little festivity. But these can easily be removed when this fit of madness passes. Hurrah! All good things come in threes and have matching accessories right?

    […] I love the simplicity of this design and the hidden button placket. But while I tried really hard to line up the spots on the button placket I only partially succeed. They are matched horizontally, but my calculations for the space between them vertically was  out, so there is a bit of a gap on one side of the placket. Regardless it’s another winner and I really am loving the headscarf. The pompoms were a fun addition which I initially thought would be temporary for Christmas, but I think I might keep them on. If you’re interested there is more photos and ramblings on my blog. […]
