The fabric is Kokka Japanese cotton from Volksfaden and has that playful Boden-like edge. I can't help but skip about! The pattern is from my faithful Japanese skirt pattern book - this has been such a good buy, and I have lots more ideas for happy summer skirts. I made the same style in the winter in tweed and it looked Vivienne Westwood-esque. In cotton, the frill stands out a bit more, which FL pointed out makes me look like a Flapper. I am thinking cuban heels and a string of long wooden beads.
Back at the hospital yesterday for FL's monthly check. 48 patients and only 3 doctors, so we waited a long time for a short appointment. FL's blood test results are "good" and we mustn't worry about his cough / shortness of breath thing. Oh, that's OK then. As ever, we get ourselves all psyched up for the hospital and then wonder why we bothered. But it's all good. Onwards and upwards.
Still knitting my April socks - tsk!
