A Tangy New Outfit

I love the colour orange! I love all the shades of orange from zesty and bright to muted and deep. So, in that vein, I present the following juicy goodness:




















The cardigan is a remake of BWOF 103 (9/05) that I had whipped up earlier this year and the skirt is a TNT pattern, Kwik Sew 2771. The fabric for the cardigan is a stretchy polyester knit from Vogue Fabrics. The skirt fabric, purchased from Timmel Fabrics, is a wonderful taupe and orange herringbone patterned RPL.

I am very pleased with this outfit - it is a great addition to my work wardrobe. The pieces are comfortable and easy to wear, not to mention the fabrics are a breeze to maintain due to the laundry friendly fibre content.



Before I sign off, I want to send out a couple of huge smooches to Carolyn and Karen for nominating me for the Sisterhood Award. The ladies in blogosphere sure are a congenial bunch. If the rest of the world would learn a thing or two from all the sewing "sisters", the planet would be a far better place!

Orange is such a happy colour! Your outfit does look very cheery and comfy. I really like the texture/print in the cardigan.

Love the title! I am really into orange this year too...I have a couple of pieces on my to sew list that have some orange in them. Glad to see you back and the award fits you to a "T" in my book!

That's a great orange fabric. I'm wondering if it's textured. I have orange fabric in my sewing room, decided what it will become.

I am happy to see you sewing and posting again. Orange is such an uplifting color. I recently purchased some fabrics in that color, but they are aging in my stash at the moment. Unfortunately my "fabric in", "fabric out" stats are flip flopped from yours.

I love your outfit. A girl never has too much orange!

So happy to see you blogging!!! I love orange on you so this outfit will be a winner. I have some of the RPL and might make a skirt rather than pants.

I'm also glad to see you blogging! I love orange - so cheerful and such an attention getter. I just can't wear it near my face so I get my orange fix with a big orange handbag.

That is a fabulous color! I could even wear that orange (and there's not many I can!)
