Here! There! and Everywhere!

Current state of the Seersucker:

Its made out of all the scrappy bits I had left over from a previous project. However -- for all that I like it better in this picture than in person, I'm not particularly happy with it as is. This is in large part due to the fact that I like defined waists -- happily, I have enough scrappy bits left to do a second row of the little triangles, and since from the bust line down its more or less just pinned in place, I figured I would make it up, pin it in place and see how that looks. (Odds are good I will end up with the double row in the final) I'm also not sold on plain shoulder straps, so, maybe scrappy triangles there too....

and, MMM:

Yesterday, tuxedo jeans and RTW top, (Its getting a bit dull photographing them over and over) and today, MM skirt with RTW top and cardigan.

The skirt is basically a drindle with a bit of a yolk and a ruffle at the bottom. As it is made of cotton gauze, its lined with another layer (although that one is cream) as I prefer not to be totally transparent when I go out into the sun. The skirt is actually a refashion of my own work, as originally it was about ankle length. The real problem? "about" ankle length -- it was about one or two inches above, which just looked like it was too small for me. (Being 5'9" its easy for things to look like I got the wrong size, even if I meant it that way) so, shortened it up to a bit below my knees, and frolicked away.


  1. I love that scrappy triangle waistband! Of course, I'm a big fan of the empire waist, not having much of a waist to define myself. Looks like fun! :)

  2. Love the patterns you've created with the seersucker triangles. And I agree that more waist definition would be very flattering on you.

  3. I like the waist band on the seersucker too! If you have a nice waist... flaunt it!


I love to hear from people :)
