You know when sometimes the things made in a whim out of some scrap fabrics turn out to be the most worn and loved things? I think I might have one of those here.
I was watching the last Mad Men episode "The Better Half" and I just loved Betty's cute outfit at the summer camp. I just had to have a blouse like hers. I didn't have any florals, but I did have some left over gingham print cotton in my stash that was just enough for a little blouse, if I stretched a little.
I had a 70's Stil pattern that had a pretty nice fit, so I just drafted a new collar and left out the sleeves and voilà!
The head scarf has been a pretty regular "hairdo" for me recently. My hair is in desperate need of - something! It would definitely need a cut, but I'm quite indecisive about the colour: grow out my natural colour or go back to red. I'm quite vary about dark permanent colours after getting a slight allergic reaction last time I dyed my hair.
What would you suggest?
