sewing for me

been squirrelling away on a couple of 
secret crafty projects
... stay tuned for those to be revealed
but i have been consistently 
sewing some clothes for me
slightly addicted to the idea actually

the fabric has quite the story
& to be honest I really didn't like it much on me
at first
it has since grown on me
& i've styled it my way
the neck piece has another travel story to it
found in an amazing bazaar in zimbabwe
when i went there on a craft teaching mission trip
its actually ethiopian i think
i'd love to know more about it
how items end up in 'other' places  facinates me
so seems a fitting accessory to pair with a fabric from remote china
to be worn by an australian who was born in switzerland
joining in with
make it wear it

See, you were wrong - it just needed the right accessories and styling.
Looks great - and it has quite a story to tell that outfit!
