Autumnal Cap

This week’s SIA inspiration, a 19th-century cap, seems quite easy for me – the green color and the embroideries are things easily found in my closet. However, after looking at the cap more closely, I saw that it has quite a lot of yellow/gold, which is not that easy for me to recreate in my outfit. In the end, I decided to go in a different direction with this yellow shirtwaist dress – the print is perfect for the flowers on the cap, and I paired it with an embroidered belt and green shoes to mimic the rest of the cap. I’m really happy with the result, even though it wasn’t what I’d originally planned.

Don’t forget to check Daenel’s blog on Wednesday to see other outfits inspired by this beautiful cap!
