Finally, I've got to sewing up the blouse lengths I bought some time (a long time) ago.
Here is the poppy one ... nearly finished. Just needs sleeves, hem, button & button holes! Not bad considering I cut it out last night.
I hit the sales yesterday and bought a beautiful waistcoat/trouser set in charcoal grey - which will match this blouse beautifully. I also picked up a winter dress (like a pinafore with cap sleeves). I can wear the dress as it is under a jacket, or with a skivvy underneath it ... just need to get the 'right' sort of skivvy. My work wardrobe is starting to take shape very nicely!
