So, who is it who even decided we can’t wear yellow? It’s one of those rules that may make sense for some, but doesn’t seem to work for me.
Is it like other rules we encounter?
- Older women can’t wear black
- Never mix pink and red
- Animal prints aren’t a neutral
I’m clearly not buying it.
This is my second make of the Tilly And The Buttons Nora Top. Lord, I love this pattern – it’s sooooo cosy. I may love the fabric even more – a fleece back jersey from Sew Me Sunshine. It’s listed as a mustard, but I’d call it saffron. Whichever, it works!
Look at that super cute box split! And those longer arms that keep your wrists cosy. I adore the deep sleeve hem which gives you the illusion of a cuff hem with much less bother.
This is the perfect make for these cold, windy days. My adjustment details from the first make are here. I want to make seven for every day of the week! Might I? Too much?!
It’s teamed with my B6178 culottes, which have become a go-to pattern for me. Seriously, find yourself some wool suiting and you have a gorgeous pair of autumnal trousers. If you ensure that there’s enough sheen to your wool, you can even wear them with tights.
These photos were taken after a morning at my desk, so you can see how this jersey wears – very well.
So, yeah. What do you reckon? Would you wear yellow/mustard/saffron/gold? Over to you!
