Nature strip

20 metres down the block is a bit of nature, so that's where today's MMM12 pic was taken.
Jacket: Simplicity 4698. I've reviewed this in pink.
Top: McCalls 8777. I no longer use a neckline facing. I turn the neck edge over and finish it with a straight stitch.
Pants: Burda 7746. I have to make 2 more of these pants (lined).
I've slowing built purple into my wardrobe but I never thought to team it with taupe. This was one of the few jackets in my wardrobe that doesn't need altering. Most of my jackets do so I'll be altering clothes while planning my next new projects.
What I have realised is after sewing for so long, we now have access to so many new independent sewing patterns that ever. My wardrobe is full of the big 4 and Burda so I'm slowly acquiring more independent sewing patterns, even patterns for bags.
If that isn't a hint about what's in the sewing pipeline...

Very nice ensemble. You're right; purple and taupe look wonderful together.
