this hat isn't the only new design i came up with this week but it certainly is my favorite. this color wouldn't be my first choice, but since this charcoal was some i had already on hand it was the one that was chosen. it's grown on me but i'd really love it in a camel or taupe or maybe a light beige to wear on the beach. maybe i'll take a week off from designing this week since my next deadline for my pattern book in the works is quickly approaching (i have loads of tweaking and measuring and rewriting to do) and save the new cowls i also did to show you next week.

i suppose this post also works as a "worn" entry, so if you're interested - wearing: button up green safari shirt from kmart / high waisted jeans from cato's (they were advertised as low rise, but come above my belly button!?! cato's is another silly shop i have a soft spot for since my mom worked there long long ago - late 70's, i think - and she'd always take me there for back to school shopping and easter dresses so i still stop in now and then. their jeans are occasionally pretty terrific, though most of the time i don't find much.) / necklace by local designer/artist/friend - olivia / shoes - thrifted and my favorites and falling apart despite my efforts with gorilla glue

available in shop here.
