    I love cowl necks, I love pink and I love your outfit !! The material of your skirt is georgeous and not only that, but very versatile for matching tops! Must have a look on your blog about the skirt, I tried this pattern and got it completely wrong, so in the end I remodelled it as a top :-(

      I suppose it depends on the kind of fabric you use, mine was a bit elastic but not enough, the pleats were very difficult to match too! I think you could give it another try on a different fabric. Thank you!

      I buy all my fabric at the local stores, I like touching them and see how they drape… never got around buying on line, sometimes I´m tempted though. How is your sewing?

      Yes! It´s very tempting to go in the fabric store with all those vibrant colours nowadays!

    Merche, your top and skirt are gorgeous and you look like a super model in them. I haven’t read your blog yet but from here (sitting in front of my computer), both look perfect.

      Despite my Woody Woodpecker hair?! ha,ha, So glad you like them! Packing the suitcase already?

      Yes, almost packed. I am on a walking tour in Bulgaria for 2 weeks and then 1 week in Paris and then a cycling tour in the Burgundy region of France. So I will have a mixed bag of clothes and I think I will look like a vagrant in Paris. I have no room in my bag for chic clothes!! – the 20kg baggage allowance is so unfair!!!

      Thank you Elisana. I reckon the pleats would show better in a solid colour but who can resist that fabric
