Rainy and windy weather are really not your friend when you are trying to take blog photos. Unfortunately, we encountered this nasty weather at our first day in Paris. Luckily, this is a sewing blog and so let’s forget my ruined hairdo and take a closer look at my new me-made jacket. This biker style jacket made from wool felt has served me well during this short trip and I have worn it almost constantly. The photos were taken at the courtyard of the Palais Royal, one of the most photogenic landmarks of Paris, if you ask me. The striped columns are part of the art installation “Colonnes de Buren” and create an interesting contrast to the historic palace. Art that can be touched and played with, just the way I like it! Also the gardens belonging to the Palais are worth a visit and for sure much more beautiful in spring than they have already been in February.
