The blue suit

I said I was going to wear it and I did. I asked Peter to take a picture of me just before I left for class:

I look like I'm holding my breath. But I think I am just standing up straight after all the yoga I have been doing. I see the one sleeve looks like it needs some more pressing, alas. But I have to say, it fit well and the fabric is very light so it was very comfortable to wear and teach in (which involves a lot of arm waving for me). And because it is wool, it was warm and yet breathable. I wasn't actually sure if I was going to like it after I made it but now that I have worn it, I think it will get fairly frequent rotation.

Thanks all! I have just finished the placemats and napkins but have decided to add some extras to the gift as a package - a quilted tea cozy and quilted pot holders for the microwave. Stay tuned!

What a lovely suit. The colour is fantastic on you. Have to say I enjoy reading your blog. Makes me want to dust off my sewing machine :)

Looks great!

Of course, I'm sure I'd last about five minutes in something that sharp before spilling tea right down the front . . .

Thanks Carol. Glad to be inspirational. :)

India, you do yourself an injustice. But yes, this fabric would show the dirt, for sure.
