En Provence

Image
Finally got the top together for En Provence (about a month ago...)

In the back you can see the table-top loom I rented from Fiber Folks of SW MO.

more summer wear

Many many years ago, I made a nightgown from a dark grey print knit. I love it, still wear it. Then, many years ago, I made a long-sleeve tee from the leftover fabric. This summer I finally used the last of the fabric to make this tee. The capris started life as a midi-length twill skirt that I couldn't wear.

new tees

Made 2 tee shirts - with my pattern traced from a Walmart tee. They fit well, but the fabric is a bit too "clingy" - or "slinky" for me. I want cotton tees! Oh,, well...

note: Pictures taken first thing in the morning - no makeup. Also, my hair has looked better...
This is the porch off my living room.

brown linen

I finally worked on pants from my SFD pattern, made a pair of pajama pants, compared them to my previous favorite pants pattern, and adjusted them. Then I made a pair of linen capris and a pair of brown linen pants. Both of them fit well, even thought they loosen up a bit as the day goes on.

En Provence pt 6

The other pictures seem so dark - this seems more true to the colors I actually am using. This was taken on my sewing table instead of my cutting board, and using my Ott lite instead of incandescent.
