Pinstriped pinny

I don’t know why the Americans call this garment a ‘jumper’. It sounds so juvenile. Besides, jumpers are woolly things you wear on top to stay warm. The Americans call those ‘sweaters’. Are they especially sweaty people? I didn’t think so. Perhaps they are just proud of the human propensity to perspire. After all, dogs can’t do it. Dogs pant to stay cool. Yet, they don’t wear ‘panties’. Which is another American word I loathe.

If you made it through all the non sequiturs, you may be interested to know that my warm and sassy pinny is is made from a stretch pinstripe wool remnant and the same mail-order pattern as the bolero. And it really could have done with a bit of an iron.

  1. I’m with you on the Americanisms, they sure do know how to come up with some stupid words!

    And I’m loving that pinny! It looks fabulous and I’m very jealous of your ability to carry off that style. I’m also totally in love with your socks/ tights, they fantastic!

  2. Lucky us non-english speaking people… Had to consult the dictionary to find out what a “pinny” was. :-)But I also didn’t know about the “jumper”. I would call it a “sleeveless dress” or “scamiciato”. So many things to learn…

    Love the stripes composition!
