I have an new and unexpected colour crush. It’s not my usual bold and bright… it’s sage green. Green has always been my favourite colour, but I’ve favoured a bright frog green rather than any of the dusky hues.
This sage green 100% boiled wool was the tipping point. It was just so thick, squishy and lush that it had to come home with me.
I didn’t formally do Me-Made-May this year (I can’t handle the thought of daily photos) but I use this time to write down what I’m wearing. Do you know what was my most worn item in May 2019? It was my orange Berlin Jacket. It’s just the perfect trans-seasonal wardrobe staple.
So when I feel hard for some sage green boiled wool, and my most worn item in May was my Berlin Jacket, you can probably guess what happened!
This is the size XS. I removed 3/8″ (1cm) from the sleeve length before adding the cuffs… which gives me the option of wearing the sleeves down or rolled up. I tend to always roll them up though.
As I was not blessed with long limbs, I raised the pockets by 2″ (5cm) on this version. They are perfect now.
Did you spot the sneaky little Blogless Anna logo I added to the pocket? It was a thank you gift from my friend Kylie. Did you know that Kylie and the Machine does custom labels now? You can email her or fill out this form if you’re interested.
This jacket has already seen a lot of wear… and that’s a winner in my books.
