My turn of the 'rota'.
Separates. Comfortable, easy-to-wear but still snappy.
First up, a Lisette Continental blouse.
Modified to fit me
I sewed it up in some gorgeous sand washed linen I purchased on our Victorian holiday.
I am definitely heading back there again.
I love this blouse so much. It has a lovely shape, no potato sacks here, but plenty of ease to pull up to feed.
I did add a couple of inches the hem.
The skirt is self drafted from a 20 year old favourite.
It pulls on with a high smooth elastic waist, it needs to be made from a very stretchy fabric.
Here it is after a full days wear.
A bit creased but ever so comfortable.
I do like the shaping at the back
Next, another favourite
Outfit number two.
A Late Lunch tunic by Liesl+Co made in the same linen.
Paired with some McCalls capri pants.
For the tunic, I made a size 8 with a DD FBA.
I went with a size 16 length to play up the tunic look, which I really like.
The capri pants have a centre back zipper and back darts. They are meant to have front darts but I leave those off to allow for my tummy.
And how do they fit?
I love the tunic, the trousers.... not so much.
They turned out really baggy. I think I will stick to leggings with this top.
I do like the subtle shaping of this tunic. It is so comfortable but just so neat.
I really really like this top.
I am still pretty blobby after having Trixie and way way too tired to do serious exercise yet.
I just feel so jolly nice in this tunic and The Twins always comment when I wear it.
And believe me, if they didn't like it, they wouldn't say anything.
See, much better with leggings.
