At last some spring weather in WonkyZebraLand!
Excellent news for those of us looking for a different thing to crochet; there are only so many cosy hats and blankets you can make before feeling the need to use some cotton and make something pretty.
But before I break out into dresses and bikini making… a little pause at a half way point… some pretty little spring outfits.I did write about suits a while ago
It looks so fresh with its girly figure hugging mini skirt and little jacket, done in a pale bouclé cotton mix thread.
I have a lot of these little suit patterns. They are a good day-wear option when you need to look smart and put together –but want to be comfortable too. Worn with a camisole – or long sleeved T-depending on the temperature, they will take you from work, to lunch, and even out afterwards , with ease.
It is worth noting that the yarn and fit are really important here for getting the look. The last thing you want is a mumsy old “sensible” dressing effect!
For example, here is the EXACT same suit – in an earlier pattern incarnation!
Just a few years later, and see how much more young and vibrant it looks done to a tighter fit ( ie with much less ease ) and in a textured yarn for more interesting fabric surface.
Here is a gorgeous chunky lace suit for a bit more of a dressed up style
…but look how much better it looks in crisp white, and when modelled by Twiggy!
So – bear this in mind and have a look again at the entry with some of WonkyZebra’s little suits… one may be just what you need for a bit of spring bling!
Here is one for the knitters out there too…
