So I missed last week’s Aussie Curves Challenge (Orange) on account of being in Japan (woohoo!) but I’m squeaking in with this week’s challenge “Mixing Patterns” with two days to go.
I’m not great at pattern mixing. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not really comfortable piecing together an outfit with disparate bits of clothing. I’m much too fond of my matchy-matchy.
When I do pattern mixing I usually start with the same colour palette, and I have discovered that polkadots and stripes are pretty much the “neutrals” of the pattern-mixing world.
Fortunately my voluminous star-print blouse matches my new striped skirt perfectly, though the elasticised waistband needed a belt over the top to make it look more finished.
It’s actually currently on sale at Virtu, and it definitely gets the thumbs up from me. It’s comfortable and all-day friendly, holding its shape well and so far there’s been no pilling on the jersey fabric. It’s a dense stretch fabric; somewhere between jersey and ponti, think enough to wear on hot days, but not so thing that you feel like every dimple and panty-seam is on display.
