Hello sewing friends.
If you read the previous post about modifying the Lola pants into cargos you would have seen my photo of a bargain table piece of cotton/hemp that I picked up at the Fabric Store, Sydney. I've quickly made them up. It was a squeeze to cut them out of the yardage and I had to piece the pockets but I kind of like the look. The pants feel remarkably light for a sturdy material and the loose style allows for some air movement.
'This location is not going to work' out take.
On another note I have been doing some revamps of existing clothes. This RTW linen dress is a favourite but has always been hard to wear because the neckline would slip down and occasionally reveal too much. My solution - a colourful appliqué from the jersey I used for the B6024 top. I glued black cotton poplin to the back and experimented with freeform zig zag for the first time ever, then sewed it into place.
At christmas I am looking forward to partying with family, having more sewing time and of course more time at the beach...
Happy sewing everyone,
