I love this outfit – it is entirely functional with a certain apron mentality – and not a cinched waist in sight. See how the buttoned waist band just sits comfortably over a sack load of anything? To dress it up – just sling an old cardigan on top and you’re good to go. Footwear? Hefty walking shoes complete the look.
I first made it in this soft stripy cotton – successful but rather reminiscent of the pyjama.
So it went in the dye bath and seems improved. Gardening dress? Maternity dress? General overall?
If only Vita Sackville-West were around to promote it – she certainly nailed the look at Sissinghurst!
