I got to wear my Bergman Jacket "tweak" today
So here's me actually wearing the jacket. There was a breeze blowing my hair in all directions, but who cares. I feel that clothes have to be seen on the person they were made for, otherwise it's no different than staring at garments carefully pinned and arranged on a mannequin in a store window.
Today I got dressed up for the monthly DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution) meeting. I missed the April meeting because of the medical procedures. The weather has not been warm enough here to wear a mesh jacket like this, but today's forecast was upward of 80 so I pulled out the dotted mesh Bergman jacket I created and wrote about in February and paired it with this ten+ year old silk swing skirt from Loes Hinse's skirt pattern , and a v-neck stretch 4-ply silk crepe sleeveless top. Neutrals never go out of style, and I enjoyed wearing this comfortable outfit today. I bought the beige splotched cream embossed silk made for Valentino by Ratti, the famous Italian silk company, while shopping at their store in Como Italy in 1999. I plan on getting lots of mileage from this cardigan jacket too.
