Working from home and rarely leaving the farm means that I have been known to make some pretty dubious fashion choices. A long skirt over my pyjama bottoms is a frequent choice, as is my favourite denim shirt thrown on over whatever clean pair of jeans I can find. Sometimes, those are black, but more often than not, I meet the postie in that great fashion faux pax, double denim.
Size Finished depth: 59cm/23in Finished length: 214cm/84in The size is easily adjustable by working fewer or more of the stripes.
