  1. Both very successful. As for the rules I don’t really get them either. Just do what you want. If someone makes a fuss you have lots of substitutes. And your hair is looking really nice and floofy.

    1. lol thanks- the floofy is driving me mad- but I can’t afford a good haircut right now so it will wait a while longer. Unless it all falls out first [post-menopause is showing its teeth…to my scalp!] Where I’m losing it with the rules is the print/prints. Which to choose when I’m doing so much piecing? And not a single item that is all print. Meh. I’m wearing the hell out of it all anyway [pretty much] so it’s all good.

  2. Do your own thing stay true to yourself! Love the black math top.
    Love the big cats too but something looks a little off with the kitties, not sure what hut then it could just be me.
    Yes your hair is looking nice & fluffy it has volume. Mine is thin & strawlike when it used to be soft supple & thick. Menapause sucks

    1. the kitties are gorgeous, but almost abstract- they sort of jump out at you when not expecting them lol. My hair used to be fine and straight, til I had kids when it went much thicker and quite curly. It’s thinning fast now though- I’m hoping it’s temporary, but I suspect not. My dreams of having long thick white hair are no closer!

      1. My hair is long, halfway down my back & a white blond with some wave to it, just so much thinner now 😟
        Being almost 60 ( how in hell did that happen) my hair & figure have done some things I’ve never imagined back when I was younger, always thought I’d be slim & trim. forever. I think with the cats top it’s so graphic that the solid gray is throwing me. Ido love it & will keep my eyes open for some of those kitties for a pair of leggings.

      2. I think that’s why the solid grey was bugging me- I had to add those ribbon trims just to ‘lift’ it…and may yet add more. It’s funny how sometimes ‘more is more’- I found that out with steampunk outfits! My hair, unfortunately, is following my dad, and staying peper and salt for a loooong time. Mum was WHITE haired by the time she was my age, the missus has been white haired [pure silver really] for years. Mine just looks mucky so I’ll carry on colouring it for some time yet!

    1. Well, if you look back at what I’ve made so far, I think I’ll be quibbling over print v. patterned lol. I have woven stripes, woven pattern and prints all jumbled up. As long as I keep to my geometrically themed look, and the colours are tight, I consider it still as a collection. I’m wearing everything so far except the swirly-black cowl neck [too lightweight yet] and the stripey overtunic [me and layers are not great friends post menopause] Time will tell when I lay them all out together in a month.

    1. The one included in the pattern is a lovely deep pocket, so I just duplicated it, flipped to th other side, and changed the angle of the top to suit. I’m not sure why they only put on one, it’s a bit strange…

    1. lol thanks- My missus does take nice snaps doesn’t she? We don’t take the photography side of blogging as seriously as some though, life’s too short, so what you see is what we got! [no editing in other words] it’s me, warts and all

    1. Thank you- it did make a surprising difference. I’m still of the opinion that some little thing is lacking with this one. Maybe it did need the red piping that I considered…I still like it though!

  3. Both looking very fine. I particularly like the mathsy one.
    Ribbon is excellent. I agree with you ‘re accessories – I can never be bothered to trawl and find something suitable.
    Stand out at those interviews – at least they will remember you 😀

  4. Is there an actual imperial/metric measurement that fits within “skinge’?
    Personally, coming from a print industry background, we work on gnats’ or dogs’ b*ll*cks, depending on the tolerances.
    Regardless of the seam allowances, you have two perfectly fitting tunics. And I may have to look into this Lani tunic further….
