A few last days of summer are promised for the weekend and this is the last of the summer sewing. Linen/rayon capris with seersucker trim at the hem and a waistline finish with a petersham ribbon. It is comfortable to wear and I had been hoping to wear this outfit in Toronto 6 weeks ago, that deadline kind of slipped away from me. The blouse I played around with a bit, the linen facing has been interfaced with silk organza and the buttons are stacked. A rather garish lime green pearl button has been topped with another light coloured pearl button.
These fabrics were picked up at Frou Frou when they shut the doors here and moved the factory to China. The seersucker was just off cuts and the green was an end of the bolt. Maximum cost was $30 and so far, one skirt, one cropped pants, two linen tops, one seersucker top with linen trim and a batik top with linen trim. When I add in a brown linen skirt it is a good combination for travelling.
My next deadline is to get a knitted sweater(jacket) done by Wednesday. It should be possible.
