Rainy day here in Florida so much better than the Sahara dust. Sewed the Rosaline Puff in Robert Kaufman voile liking this plum shade. Increased the length of the skirts by adding 4 inches at the top. This is so lagen I'm in love.
For these terribly hot days I pulled out one of my favorite patterns. Michelle. It’s available again in PDF and I’ve always loved it. Mine is so old I should probably replace it. Lol. I think it’s from the original printing and some of the lines don’t even begin to match up. I used white gauze and added a sweet collar from vintage handkerchiefs. Sweet, cool and comfortable. Perfect for 102 degree days. 😳
this was a easy sew the shape is fantastic. Just testing for fit sewed in a 2X, in crisp stretch cotton sheeting. I added 2 inches to the straps and adjusted Also gathered the front and back slightly for a better fit. Omitted the French seams on this sample. Now I can find a silk taffeta to make it in. I really like the design, I will probably wear my sample a lot
