travel and camping SWAP
Isn't this a beautiful robe? I drool over it from time to time and dream about making it up in a slinky silk charmeuse...maybe an oriental print or a dark deco print with night blooming flowers. I can see myself gliding around the house in this number.
Nice fantasy, right? What I really am doing is planning and sewing a travel and camping wardrobe for my winter in the desert. I don't think I'll be gliding around in the Arizona desert in that number. uhhh, more like this:
This has got to be one of the WORST envelope poses I have ever seen. She looks like she is standing in the back row of a VB game and hoping the ball doesn't come near her! But, these are terrific board shorts-I made some last year out of a pretty coral crinkle cotton and they are so flattering and easy to wear. So, these are part of my SWAP in probably a light denim.
Pants: V8397 View B in red stretch and in a green/bronze stripe;View A in a teal crepe couture which is a fabulous fabric if you are looking for easy care suit fabric. I am hoping I can wear these somewhere in Tucson this winter.
Jackets will be the McCalls in the last post and also this cool pullover-->
I am using a summery striped cotton from Gorgeous Fabrics.Won't that be nice?
Maybe I'll add a zipper....
That's all for now as I need to get upstairs and start sewing. Three of the four pants are cut out, and fabrics are matched to their patterns. Stay tuned for more details on Jalie 2212, S 2370, S 2474 and M 5890.
