Last year I made a perfectly fine skirt, which became my Favourite Skirt. It was black cotton sateen with white crocheted doileys printed on it. It was a billion kinds of awesome - looked good, fit well, made me coffee in the morning. It was so awesome that I sent the leftover fabric to Curlypops who made her own Skirt of Awesome with it.
Then when I came back from New York etc in November last year, I realised that I'd lost my skirt. Last time I'd seen it I'd worn it to work the week before I left for my holiday. I turned my house upside down trying to find it. It was lost. I was convinced someone had stolen it from my clothesline, and why wouldn't they? It was an Awesome Skirt.
I mourned that skirt every day I didn't get to wear it to work.
Four months later I unlocked my bike locker at work to find my toothpaste after a particularly garlicky lunch, and there was my skirt. And my petticoat, tights and lovely black double-strap mary jane shoes. Which I didn't even know I'd lost.
So that's a long story to say "I lost my awesome skirt, but I found it again, and today I got to wear it for the first time since October". We had heavy fog this morning. And it was cold enough for me to regret the bare legs, but the day ended up very warm by lunchtime.
But this post is supposed to be about the Simplicity 2938 top made in chocolate brown cotton voile. I'm wearing it with my fourth favourite cardigan from Lane Bryant which is far too big for me. I'd never paired this brown 2938 with black before, but I think I like it.
While I think about which Simplicity 2938 to pull out of the wardrobe for tomorrow I have a unenviable choice to make.
Which Necklace of Amazingness is the best choice for a blacktie smackdown on Saturday?
