Hot on the heels of my previous Coco from scarf tops (here and here), Gabby gave me another two scarves to turn into tops. These are also fine shirred wool, but this time they had a pattern that needed to be matched. Gah!
The only way I could get the sleeves to line up with the body was to make them three-quarter length, which isn’t my favourite length for winter.
One thing I have noticed is that this top goes with a large number of outfits – my new grey skirt, my brown trousers, and a couple of other things as yet unblogged. I wore it to work with my chrysanthemum dress, but of course most of it was hidden.
However the colours worked together really well. It was clearly a really windy day when I took these photos.
