Summer Capsule Wardrobe 2015 – the final cut

HIt might seem a bit late in the day, but my Summer starts when I finish Uni. and as my Grandmother always said… ‘Ne’er cast a clout til May is out’.  It’s lovely and sunny here in North Lincolnshire, and I’m looking forward to the promised warm weather this week.

There have been more wardrobe casualties, I’ve put on a little weight.  My favourite white linen shirt is too snug and my white broidery anglais top is far too small.  I have put the shirt away hoping I will loose a little bit of weight.   The other one is off to the charity shop.

My pale grey linen trousers have been let out :0/ The picture is from when I took them in!  That tee shirt has gone back to the charity shop and the cardigan awaits dye as it’s very faded now.

I have made a couple of purchases: a white short sleeve tee shirt and 2 vest tops, white and navy from Marks and Spencer. A pair of Rocket Dog pumps in a bold print.  I have finally got round to making a couple more vest tops too, a blue dotty one (to test the pattern size – this may end up at the charity shop) a white linen one, squeezed from a rather nice remnant and a cream silk one, edged with the printed cotton bias binding I bought on my trip to Paris.
