Ms. February's accessory challenge: With a warm suit, carry a tweed or plaid bag and line one side of your hat with matching tweed or plaid. Oh how I love tweeds and plaids and I'm definitely in the right country to get it!
Jacket, shoes and purse: presents from my sweetiepie from Ness
Trousers: me-made with Simplicity #3688
Hat: Top Tottie Vintage (fab UK based etsy store)
And the hat from the front--see the matching fabric?
Ness doesn't sell their fabric, so I had to get a bit crafty to get that piece of fabric for the hat. I bought one of their bucket hats for cheap on ebay and took out the stitching to get the fabric:
Actually, I should say David helped me take my idea and make it a reality. He was able to visualize how the bucket hat could be used to get the fabric to fit the tilt hat--and made it happen. Isn't he great? Check out the detail on the back:
Here's some more pictures of the outfit:
Oh, and this is Ms. February's mansion. Nevermind that she is on the outside of the wall...it's only because she's just been inspecting the outer wall.....everything looks good...
love my new trousers:
Doesn't this look like a much older (older than 1941) silhouette? What year does this look like??
I have a feeling Ms. February will be out and about a lot this spring!
Now I am completely caught up with my accessory calendar. Check out Ms. January and Ms. March and don't forget to accessorize!
