It's a good day to be inside.
I am working on my Minoru jacket and have the lining done, with cute interior pockets. I love the fabric for both the shell and the lining, and together they are a great pair. Oh, and do you like my retro pull down ironing board? It is original to the house, making it about 70 years old. The little space below is for the iron, but is too small for modern appliances so I don't use it.
Back to the original goal of this post. I am wearing thrifted lycra pants, which I refashioned into a less garish mix of black and white. These still have white blanket stitching on all the darts and the waistband-which you will never see. I also removed the cuffs with the white blanket stitching there. I guess they were some trendy JJill design which lasted a season. The top is from V8151 which I have used many times. This tee is made from scraps. The outer shell is stretch lace (I think cotton) from JA Red Tag fabrics and the underlayer is a scrap of lilac jersey I had. I used leftover pieces for the necktie. I have on purple Sketcher sandals for inside. If I do go out, I'll need socks and boots.
In other news, my husband and I have been trying to go camping and keep getting sidetracked by life. We left Monday to go to Death Valley, and after stopping outside of Reno, discovered the slide would not extend on the trailer. We called a mobile service the next morning and unfortunately, he could not fix it or determine what the problem is. So, we are back at home and practicing acceptance and powerlessness. It's all good-that has been our mantra this year so far.
Back to the Minoru...
