Clover - Styled

I was browsing over at Handmade by Carolyn and some of my favorite posts by her are the ones where she styles her garments in different ways.  Now, her style is impeccable and my post won't be nearly as good, but I thought I'd give it a go styling my Colette Clovers.

First up: Turquoise Clovers and Amy Butler Gothic Rose Sorbetto
Interestingly enough, I haven't been particularly thrilled with this top.  It's easy to wear, but I didn't feel like the length was the most flattering.  With these pants, though, I really like it.  Maybe there are more Sorbettos in my future after all.

Here's my attempt at dressing the Clovers up a little.  The only me made in this picture is the pants.

I made this blouse from Simplicity 2892 with Anna Maria Horner voile and really haven't worn it very much.  There are little niggly things about it that make me not reach for it, but I realize from this picture that it probably looks fine to everyone but me.

This is my short sleeved Sewaholic Renfrew in a cute apple print.  I got mine from Girl Charlee, but, last time I checked, Fabric.com had it in some other colorways.  You can't really see it in this picture, but the apples have red heart-shaped centers.

You might have noticed I got that remote shutter release I was talking about getting.  I can already tell it's going to make getting photos much easier.  Hooray!


  1. Oh I'm so envious of your adorable Clovers. I'm such a terrible pants-fitter, but I really must try this one! I've already got it in the stash...

  2. I love your outfits (and your red shoes!) - so colorful! I need to work on that. Thanks for sharing :)

  3. Those Clovers are great! You are definitely tempting me to go ahead and get this pattern. I just made a Sorbetto and you're right - it's a very flattering match for the Clovers. Great styling!

  4. Oh wow. Love the red pants. I really want to get some fabric like that so that I can make a pair XP.
