Daylight saving has arrived, going home from work in the sunlight is just so much more pleasant! And I'm dreaming of swimsuits again.
Currently, I'm working on a Butterick retro resissue pattern. I'm using a balinese print fabric I bought in Bali earlier this year. I was a little intimidated by the bold dark pattern when I got it home, but I'm actually really happy with how it's working out.
I also have a playsuit pattern on the way, which I'm planning to make up in a fabulous 1950's vintage fabric I bought recently. It was expensive so I've really thought hard about what it needs to become. And the playfulness of the design just screamed 'playsuit with wrapskirt'. I love this v-neck version.
I'm kicking myself that I missed out on this pattern on E-Bay recently because I can't stop dreaming about this swimsuit and the divine cover-up - how great is that neckline? I reminds me of Jean Seberg in Bonjour Tristesse.
Gertie just asked her readers what we thought of her doing a swimsuit pattern? I say Yes, Yes, Yes! And please make it one like this one!
Enjoy your day, and I hope its warm wherever you are.
