This is my first completed outfit for fall 2011. The bow blouse is absolutely perfect, I wish I could make 3 more in various colors. I used a navy and black herringbone cotton weave with pinstripes of mustard and white.
The trousers are made in a wool suiting material with taupe and light gray pinstripes; the fabric also has a bit of stretch. They’re lined in a steel-gray bemberg, which makes them feel completely like butter. I want to line all of my pants now! I stitched these trousers up as part of an awesome sewalong hosted by A Fashionable Stitch.
