Living in the tropics means you only ever wear summer clothes. It sounds wonderful but you have the same clothes everyday looking at you from your wardrobe. I have spent the last few weeks sewing some clothes to replace the ones that wear out with constant laundering. After living here for many years natural fibres are what I find easy and comfortable to wear therefore I search out linen and cotton fabrics. I have a few basic patterns that I work from as I know they fit well.
|Cotton Print Top|
|I found some beaded ribbon to sew around the neckline.|
|A top made using a Kaffe Fassett print|
|Cotton Print Dress|
|Striped linen top|
|Basic linen dress. Great with beads.|
|Linen top and Linen trousers|
I admire anyone that can take a photo of themselves modelling clothes! You are lucky to get this one! One lady that does such a good job of modelling her clothes is Sylvia. I enjoy reading her blog 40+ Style.
