I popped into the local charity shop & spotted these grey linen trousers by Sandwich. They look brand new. They are a size to big, but at £3.75 I am happy to alter them. Fortunately they have side seams in the waistband too. I’ll do a little tutorial on how I took them in for my next blog post.
We went to a local car boot sale where a lady was selling mixed packs of 10 Anchor embroidery threads for £1. I got myself 6 packs for £5. Bargain!!
The linen trousers will slot straight into my capsule wardrobe, I’ll remove the black ones to make room. Here is an outfit that didn’t go into my capsule wardrobe but I saved in case we got some lovely warm weather.
The Vintage M&S Rayon top, has lace inserts in the side seams, as it was a size to small for me, and the skirt had the strange frill removed and a lace insert added. I upcycled theses last summer. Cool?
