Skokloster Castle, an absolutely wonderful 17th century caste a little bit north of Stockholm, and a few photos were taken: a shirt and skirt in brown silk noil for the spring/summer year 1 wardrobe. There is supposed to be a jacket in the same material but that isn't finished yet and it would have been too hot to wear it even if it was.
|It is very hard to take pictures in our family without at least one animal. Here is Lipton.|

It is a bit of a frankenpatten. The top is taken from this Vintage Vogue pattern and I plan to make the jacket to match, the skirt is the bottom part from a vintage 40's pattern. I'm quite pleased with it and silk noil is lovely to work with and drape well. It is also cool and nice to wear in summer.
