Yay! I finished the actual work last week, but I waited until I could get a good picture, and I figured my blue hat in front of a blue box was fitting!
The Challenge: Blue
It’s been very cold in NYC this winter, which means I’ve had lots of opportunity to wear one of the coolest pieces of clothing I own: a vintage WWII RAF officer’s greatcoat! It’s the heaviest piece of clothing I own and it’s usually too warm for average winter weather, but since it’s been EXTRA cold, this baby’s seeing the most action it’s had since I bought it in 2012. I’ve discovered, though, that I don’t have any warm hats that look good with it! (Surprise surprise, rainbow beanies and Gryffindor-coloured earflap hats look very silly with badass 40s coats).
So for February’s HSM challenge, “Blue”, I’m going to make a 1940s-style tam to go with my awesome coat.
