It’s always at this time of year that I particularly start craving an autumnal colour palette. For me, there’s something a bit special about mustard or yellow when the weather is a bit colder outside. I think it started with a certain Marks and Spencer advert featuring Twiggy, Erin O’Connor and a beautiful yellow coat a few years ago. The colour just stood out for me and I’ve been associating yellow, and mustard in particular, with this season ever since.
There are a number of beautiful clothes in the shops at the moment and, as ever, I’ve been pinning my faves. Here are just a few things I’ve been inspired by lately and hopefully some of these will translate into actual made by me clothing.
Putting the Tilly and the Buttons Love At First Stitch book on my Christmas list a few years ago must have been one of the best things I’ve done, sewing wise. It’s from this book that my favourite skirt pattern, the Delphine, is taken and I’ve used it again and again.
