Don't mind me, just lurking in an alley in the exact same outfit I blogged about in June. Different fabrics, different colors, and print usage reversed....but nothing new or ground breaking.
Gillian and Roisin for example, often remake patterns and I enjoy seeing how they look sewn in different fabrics. So hopefully you'll indulge me in a little pattern rehashing today. I picked a pretty alley to make it go down better. ;)
In recap I'm wearing the Nettie bodysuit and the bottom half of the Emery dress turned into a skirt. This time Nettie is made up in a rayon knit, still in stock, from Emmaonesock.com. The fabric is described has having a dry hand, which I can say is completely accurate after fondling it in person. In the future I'd prefer to buy rayon knit with this sort of finish. The texture is very pleasing and it's more matte looking on the right side than standard rayon. Mo matte, mo better. Is that what the kids say? Probably not.
Annnnyway, it's great having some patterns that can be considered a "seasonal uniform." Items which coordinate and make me feel put together. Certainly helps on those days were I'm strapped for time or don't really know what to wear. However what's great for your closet isn't always what great to read about on a blog. So what are your thoughts on repeats/blogging about them and so on? OK in moderation, or horribly snooze inducing and when is the crazy frog going to show up again? You know he's got talent.
