I need an outfit for my daughter's wedding. I like wearing jackets, but they get just too warm. The pattern I have has slacks, a tank top, and a full flowing jacket. the first fabric I found was a taupe print ( next photo) silk. I was trying to find a marine blue to wear, but I couldn't find a dark blue print that I liked. Anyway, the floral silk as smudges of blue in it, and I think it will work out fine.
I couldn't find anything at JoAnns that wasn't polyester or rayon. I am happy with these and it was worth waiting for.
Actually, with the exception of the garment fabrics, this was a fairly inexpensive outing. I won't start sewing my outfits until closer to July. I have managed to lose nearly 20 pounds, and I am hoping to continue. The thought of this blubber rolling around under the knits, makes me cringe, but that is what the pattern called for. I figure it will be very comfortable to wear, and I will be happy that I went this direction.
That's it. Boy, my feet are killing me..
