I haven’t moved to the northern hemisphere. It is late autumn here and heading into our coolest months. Nevertheless, I am planning ahead and thinking about what I might like to have in my wardrobe by the time summer rolls around again.
I am making 2 tops in a style I have made before. Here is one that just needs the bottom hemming and armhole binding done to complete it.
This is the back as it buttons up the back. The fabric was in my stash so no outlay at the moment apart from the buttons. It will be perfect with either black or white summer trousers or shorts.
The other top which is also partly made is simply plain black in a lightweight crinkle cotton.
I have given quite a bit of thought recently to how to simplify my wardrobe. I will definitely be sticking to a couple of basic colours but more importantly I am feeling more confident about what styles of clothes I will wear and how to streamline my clothes to more accurately fit my lifestyle.
More on that another day.
