The current transition period is nothing for me … I just don’t know what to wear. The ongoing lockdown doesn’t make it easier for you to get ready and properly dressed every day as well. Actually, I thought that I have found my style through my capsule wardrobes, but right now I do not find myself in my rather basic-heavy wardrobe anymore. 🙈 I’m currently looking for airy cotton fabrics in pastel colors with feminine cuts. So everything that can’t be found in my closet at the moment. Somehow I have the feeling that due to the lockdown and my still quite new self-employment, my wardrobe no longer suits me and I have to find myself again first. Are you feeling the same right now?

So it’s actually quite a good thing that since the beginning of the year I’ve been experimenting more with my own patterns and posting a pattern here for you to copy every month. The January project was the ruffled skirt shown today, which I named Fleury. You can see the first version made of floral viscose here. Since I wore my floral skirt up and down, I had to make a second version in classic black. I like the playfulness of the skirt and also that today’s outfit has a little something French about it. 🙂
