Orange coat

Here I am wearing my orange coat from last year's SWAP with the orange knot front top from the WiaW and purchased linen trousers. The trousers seem to have shrunk a little sadly.
The photo is taken in the sewing room - so you can see what the pale green walls and cream woodwork looks like - tranquil but not massively exciting!

What a terrible silhouette! The coat needs shortening to a jacket and the trousers need to become crops for the beach. Needless to say I won't be wearing this to the office again.
(I am guessing I am employed for my winning personality, fantastic telephone manner and ability to listen to techie IT guys long enough to know roughly what they are talking about, rather than my fabulous dress sense!)

Oh no I've been Tango'd!

(For those who have no idea what the being Tango'd is, there's an orange flavour fizzy drink in the UK called Tango, which was advertised by people painted orange jumping out slapping the drinker with the words 'You know when you've been Tango'd)

You're a HOOT today, Ruthie!! (OK, tell this Kanuk what "I've been Tango'd" means...)
Soft hug,

Haha, haven't heard that phrase for a while! Love the colour of the coat but agree with you that it might be better a bit shorter. Shame about the shrinking trousers :-)
