It’s funny to me how MMM is getting me to think more about combinations in my closet. It’s been a while since I’ve made orphaned garments, but still, it’s awesome to be able to go and put things together and have them work together. It’s still a little cool, but wonderful in the sun today. We went to the park with friends and the boys played in the backyard while I started putting dinner together (chicken tikkas, fresh naan, and some kind of salad I haven’t decided on yet). It was a perfect day for this poplin jacket and jeans.
The only bummer about this outfit is that the jacket is definitely too big on me now. I cut it at a 34 in the shoulders before my realization that I am actually a 32 in the neck and shoulders. It’s a raglan sleeve, so it’s perhaps not as obvious as it would be in a cut-on sleeve, but it’s definitely poofing in a way I’m not super excited about. But I’ll keep wearing it because I love the color and it goes with so many things.
I’m itching to make a knit dress. I have a couple of different choices in my stash that are all siren-calling to me. Still, I have some shorts to finish, hopefully to be ready for the train museum on Thursday (it’s supposed to be like 80), my T-shirt project #2 knockoff to write about, and jeans to cut out of my mystery denim. No rest for the wicked I suppose.
