Double trouble

I discovered a great couple on Instagram who I have been following for a few months called @bonponn511, they have a huge number of followers! Their tagline is

Couple | over60 | greyhair |fashion | coordinate

The theme is that they wear matching outfits! I just love them!

Some of you may know that I have secretly been trying to get MrTL to wear clothes that coordinate with mine, however he is not that keen, haha I wonder why??

I somehow managed to persuade him that he needed a new shirt for work and that I would happily make him another Colete Negroni, what I didn’t let on was that it would match the gorgeous gingham Deer and Doe Bleuet dress that I have just made for myself!

Imagine his surprise and delight, he even agreed to a visit to our local beach, can you guess where we are?                                                                                                                                                                      CNQR2027

I have made the Negroni shirt a few times and I think it is very straight forward and the instructions are easy to follow, sadly it is not available in pattern form anymore, only as a PDF from the Colette patterns website which is a real shame as I for one can’t stand sticking lots of sheets of A4 paper together, give me a proper pattern any day!!

The Bleuet dress was also surprisingly easy, although the instructions assume you are a competent sewer so they are a bit minimal, thank goodness for automatic buttonholes and a machine that even sews on buttons (all 16 of them!).

The fabric is a linen mix with a small navy gingham pattern, it can make your eyes go a bit funny if you look at it too hard! Its available form our website: TrixieLixie.co.uk

Now, what matching outfits can I make for us next??
