Readers, my last Mood outfit of the summer is complete!

I know what you're thinking: wasn't that beige cardigan intended for Michael? Yes, it was. But is it wrong to share your clothes with a similarly-sized loved one? I think not!
If the pink fabric I made the pants from looks familiar, it should -- it's the same cotton canvas I used for Susan's pencil skirt. (I even used a remnant of the blouse for my pockets. Waste not, want not, I always say.)
I don't always remember to thank Michael for taking all my photos, but I do want to acknowledge his tremendous contributions over the years (for Cathy too). I am tremendously fortunate to have someone around who's willing to pick up a camera at a moment's notice (or nearly). Without him, it would be an endless stream of Instagram selfies.
I'm really love the beige cardigan (which is basically identical to the blue one I made last year) and I'm quite smitten with the pink pants as well. In case you're wondering, I was inspired by these (below), from Steven Alan, both for the fit and the fabric.
