The finished jodhpurs! Well, here they are you guys, my first pair of jodhpurs. I will definitely change a few things next time I make a pair, but overall I am happy with these! I didn't have a single thing in my closet that went with them in the end, hence the delay in showing them to you all. That changed when I broke down and embarked on a short thrifting adventure yesterday after work. I found not one, but two, safari blouses/shirts! The one above is 100% silk and cost me $3! I left in the thin little shoulder pads for a bit of 40's structured flair. The other is even more safari-ish, with more details and tabs. I also picked up two other silk blouses, one a colorful tropical print, the other a perfect ivory satin blouse with french cuffs! I don't often go thrifting, rarely if ever actually, but after such a successful trip I will definitely start going more often! I also picked up 6 (6!) new scarves, including an adorable small white chiffon number with bright red cherries!
In the height of my safari-fashion mania, which has yet to subside, I ordered these lace up boot from Amazon. For the super low price, I braced myself for them possibly looking just too cheap, but was pleasantly surprised! I also picked up this nice straw style pith helmet. Got to have a pith helmet right?
I'd love to go on a real safari this summer, but until I can make my way over to Africa, the grasslands of Colorado will have to do. I hope you guys are having a lovely week, I'm off back to the sewing room to finish up a ivory linen boater I have been working on!
