OOTD: Falling for Cords x 21:07 AM
What a busy, busy last two months this has been! (And, we still don't move until late next week!) There certainly hasn't been much sewing going on over here, as every time I've cut fabric or pulled out my machine, I've had to throw it all right back in the closet for another showing of our house.
But, my me-made items are seeing more and more wear :-) In fact, for our house-hunting trip to Georgia, I wore a me-made item every day! My corduroy skirts in particular are now in regular rotation. I reach for them so often, I've added four more to my queue... which is, of course, on hold but, eventually...
Lately, I'm hooked on burgundy and gold. So, of course, I had to try them together!

I also have a love/hate thing going on with fair isle this fall. It reminds me of childhood winter vacations in snowy Connecticut and it's gaining popularity lately so, I thought now would be a good time to try it again. No worries though, no Seamless Pledge was broken in the making of my outfit. I picked up this "vintage" (Really? Why are we calling '90's vintage?) Ralph Lauren wool sweater at a thrift shop for $3.50!
I opted to 'own' the '90s vibe and pair it with corduroy, though my thoughts are still mixed... Please, feel free to share yours!

Time to get back to living vicariously through all of your lovely projects! You know, between showings...and emails...and calls to the bank and this utility company, that Realtor... ugh. Things will get back to normal soon. I hope!
Happy sewing! x
