Burda 10-2008-116 blouson jacket
My favourite colour is copper. I found that out quite by chance. If you asked me, "what is your favourite colour?" I would have said, "blue."
Here's how I found out. When the place where I worked wanted to lay off a whole lot of staff, they brought in a "change management" consultant. 5 of us signed up for the workshop. One of the activities was to imagine yourself surrounded by a colour that made you feel warm, secure and alive. And what colour did I see? Copper! I think it's because it so closely resembles a well made cup of coffee. Anyway, funnily enough, not one of us 5 attendees actually got made redundant, but we all left within a year to follow a new path that we had planned out that day in the workshop.
It's not a colour that suits me, but I love it, which is why I didn't mind making up this blouson jacket to match my ugly skirt in it.
I super-burda-ed this time, with belt and buttonhole. I even had some nice wooden bracelets so I could uber-super-burda it but I forgot to put them on.
Now you can see "ugly" skirt on. It's a pencil skirt - I have now officially entered it into the contest. I was going to ask you all to take a vote, but really, when I first saw this fabric I thought it was absolutely hideous.
You just can't top that ... I knew in my hearts of hearts that this was my entry.
