Laura from the office has made this Beautiful Liberty Set. It’s bit like a jumpsuit but way more versatile. Laura tells us about her lovely sewing project below.
“Recently, it feels like all the cool fashion brands on Instagram are making this thing called a ‘set’. Forgive me if this is old news, but I haven’t seen this trend for womenswear in my lifetime? I don’t think, at least??? For the unaware, like myself until recently, a set is two or more pieces of clothing that match each other in fabric and are usually intended to be worn at the same time. These may be skirts and tops, trousers and tops, crop tops and jackets, etc. Quite possibly the last time I wore something like a matching set in public I was a toddler, but then pretty much anything goes in toddler fashion so I guess that isn’t major news. Only recently have I added a jumpsuit to my wardrobe, and it has been great (especially with it being in very pretty Liberty Fabric Primrose Path
), but surely we can all see that the matching top and trousers set is the jumpsuit evolved for the better. I have no evidence for this, but I believe the set appeals because it looks/feels a bit like just going out in your pyjamas, and therefore, the people wholly approve. It is also a super lazy option, well suited to those who don’t want to spend more than 1 minute getting dressed- hurrah!”
“Having now worn both a jumpsuit and a trouser/top set I can confirm: everything is easier in a set! Not to mention that a trouser and top set is so versatile, it can be worn tucked in for the full jumpsuit illusion, untucked for something more casual as well as worn separately. Genius. Just thinking ahead, should this current set trend die off in the future and I become too embarrassed to venture out in public wearing it, it will also make amazing pyjamas so I’m all set (pun intended). Winning!”
