It’s been a hectic week and I’m guessing that’s true for a lot of us. I’m thinking of those folks who are still impacted by the effects of the storms on the East coast and hope their lives return to normal soon.
My sewing room has been singing it’s siren song and I managed to turn out this simple jacket upcycle over the past few days. Then I found these boots at a rummage sale. Right after I’d finished the jacket. Just when I’d started to think that I’d love to have a pair of burgundy boots exactly like these. I’m grateful.
The boots are Frye, the denim jacket came from Goodwill, as did the sweater that provided the sleeves, the ruched skirt was purchased 3-4 yrs ago retail, bracelets are from my collection, and the silk “scarf” is actually a thrifted upside down kimono-style robe, featured here.
I also want to thank you for all the wonderful comments on my last post. It’s one of the things I love about blogging, being able to share triumphs and challenges within a caring community. I was totally motivated to start creating again, too. In addition to the jacket shown above, I also did this piece, using a thrifted boiled wool jacket and a thrifted sweater.
I haven’t worn it yet, but I’m excited about creating an outfit and posting it for you.
Speaking of small things, this was a moth hole. It’s also my favorite feature of the jacket, where it’s placed, a seemingly random flaw that feels perfect in it’s imperfection.
Hope your week is full of good things, great and small.
