Clearly I am stupid ...

How else can I explain the moment when I thought this fabric

Would go with this fabric?

The spring tweed for my SWAP contains almost every colour you can imagine ... except lavender.

Whilst I like the blouse, BWOF 1-2008-107 (which I've made several times now) and I quite like the colour, I have no idea how I thought it matched anything. Especially given that I carry a swatch of spring tweed with me everywhere. My wardrobe has another addition, but my SWAP still needs two tops ...

That has happened to me before too.

I'm with you on that one, too. We've all done that before.

Very smart shirt. Clearly there is something in the air. My last SWAP top does not match anything at all either!

Actually, I think the color scheme looks nice! But the blouse would have to be unbuttoned at the neck so there would not be so much of the fabric showing above the jacket.

Thanks so much for looking in. I've just finished my second practice pocket and I'm feeling a lot more confident already. I think I'm ready to start the jacket construction.

Both pieces are very nice. So either way, you win. :)
