Another Flannel Shirt. Yes!

~ amongst other things ~

in the neighborhood.  Like this Christmas-red cape I made some years ago.

~ but here's the real star of the show ~

My newly finished flannel shirt!  So warm and cozy, I don't even need a coat cape.  It's made from the same Tina Givens Archie shirt pattern as last week.  But they look totally different because of the print, (I think.)

~ oh, I thought this was THE cafe... ~

ah, one door West.  Meanwhile, those are another pair of Tina Givens (who else?) Phoebe pants in grey twill.  I'm sure I've worn them here before.  I've made at least 5 or 6 pairs...flannel, twill, linen,  suede, velvet and corduroy.

~ le boot ~

And I leave you with the usual parting shot.  My red leather boots from ebay, but of course.

Now's the time to join the Visibles at Patti's Not Dead Yet Style.  Shoes skip off to Cherie's Style Nudge.  Oh, Oh, and I'm finally wearing a wee bit of GREEN!   So I'll see ya over at Spy Girl's place for 52 pick me up: chartreuse.  Chartreuse?  Oh well, it's still in the Green family.  Right?  yeah.

Many thanks to Sara for the photos.


  1. The flannel shirt is so faboo! The colors, shape and design are delightful. Boots too, natch. Thanks for linking, xo


  2. Is that flannel shirt fabric like that? Or did you piece it together? Either way it is stupendous. My Phoebe pattern just called out to me from the closet, "Cut me out and stitch me up for crying out loud!"

  3. Ra ra! Looks like Le Viking is working very well.
    Love the colours here. And 3 cheers for phoebe pants! I need some more...

  4. That shirt certainly is a star, its fabulous! xxx

  5. Happy to see you looking so fabulous. After all the "holiday insanities" go home (!) I'll be sewing again. I love the shirt pattern and the pants are a must. Can't wait to go back over your posts and be inspired. Hope all's well with you. My mom is hanging in there and I think of you frequently. :-) XXOO

  6. What a fantastic outfit, just gorgeous! Happy holidays!!!
