Who doesn’t want a new summer outfit the second they see the sun come out after a long and dreary winter!! I jumped into action excited to fulfill my goal of more clothes for me. After all my birthday is around the corner… I deserve it!
Another Esme Top since it is so fresh in my mind, (see previous post here). I went down to a size 6 (ego boost bonus) and what a great difference that made. I no longer feel like I’m drowning in too much material, but it is a nice compromise between good fit and loose. I found this cute fabric at Joanne’s and it was made in USA which is rare in a big store so I had to have it.
Lately I have been picking up these big floral prints (or as my mom likes to call it “table cloth”), but it works for spring.
Back view — nothing much to report here.
Next up are some pants I made. I made these once before in This Post. These are little hard to see, but it is a dark blue linen/rayon blend. Since my first toile I have take out all pleats and shifted things around to suit my body better. These are super comfortable because of an elastic waistband (I can get away with it because I don’t work). I like the fit they are again loose and prefect for most things I do; easy to hike in, do household chores, or play on the floor.
So there you have it. I will be doing another pair of pants. It is wonderful to put on something NOT JEANS.
Thanks for taking a look!
