A Stitcher's Wardrobe: A Bank Robbery Outfit

This is a wool skirt I thrifted last spring. It used to be floor length (on me anyway), with fringe at the hem. It looked hilarious on me. I hemmed it to knee length for a smarter look.

If I worked at a bank, I think I would dress like this.  If I needed a loan from the bank for say, a new chipper-shredder or a series of in-ground trampolines in my yard, I would dress like this. If I planned on robbing the bank, I would dress like this. They would never see me coming. And at my arraignment I would dress like this. I think it is useful to have one chameleon outfit.

My scarf is made of slub cotton worked on my knitting machine, suited to all seasons. The pin is a Thrifty Thea find. And my smock is one of six, a staple garment for me, sewn from fabric purchased at the Salvation Army Annual fabric sale.

Tomorrow's outfit will be more lively.  Hey ...  Are you still awake?

Oh, I do love your pins -- you're inspiring me to start wearing the pins I had from my grandmother.

Certainly still awake and waiting for more! I'm not much of a skirt wearer these days (shepherding in skirts doesn't work all that well!), but I'm especially loving all your tops.

In-ground trampolines? I want in on those!

Hm..I seem to be having a hard time posting a message. What I was trying to say..I think it's a super smart outfit! I love the blouse!
