I've found that before - that people often work in a certain colour palette, that runs through many of their choices. Many years ago we went to an open day at an agricultural college (my kids loved the maggot racing!). There was a table of pottery and ceramics by several different people. A lovely blue and white bowl caught my eye, and I asked one of the women at the stall if it was her work. She said it was and seemed surprised - well, I said, you're wearing the same colours.

Heh heh - I'm guilty of that FB. When I shop for clothes (believe me, it is not often !) I usually wander round feeling uninspired, then my eyes light on something (usually not the thing I'm looking for) and I think "oh, that's rather nice", then after a moment's thought realise that it is almost the same as the one I have in my wardrobe already. Which does then mean I don't need to buy another after all Laughing

It's finished. I was still hemming at 5pm and hoping to wear it tonight. This is the whole outfit, with the skirt, all made from the man's old work shirts.

The front....


and the back.

It's lovely to see what you've been making, Ploshkin and Freebird. The last thing I sewed for myself was a skirt I made about eight years ago. The pattern wasn't really suitable for the checked Indian cotton I used, and when I had finished the whole thing looked a bit of a mess. But I feel inspired by your pictures, and when life settles down a bit I must get the machine out.

I love that 50s style FB. Fortunate to have a XXL man with shirts to spare. I would only end up with oil stained ones with welding splat holes.
