gudes*, let’s get real. summer’s over (in the northern hemisphere), the wind is starting to smell like fall. days are shorter. the world is (yet again) going to hell in a handbasket. and this past weekend was the two-year anniversary of a huge personal challenge.
i am not in an awesome place this week. i’m not gonna lie. so i’ll just post some fun end-of-summer outfits i finished just in time for a summer vacation weekend in california.
(and watch some buffy the vampire slayer. obvi. maybe read some really trashy sailor moon fan-fiction? wait, did i just admit that out loud?)
these are both 1930’s-era simplicity playsuit patterns and can i tell you how much i love them? they were beyond perfect for beach-strolling. and high-waisted shorts! awesome!
the skirts are identical and i used two different shorts patterns. keep an eye on the pleated pair; i have a new set nearly ready (#missionarea51, much?) in some liberty of london wool from NY-Lon.
i think i just need to hole up for some quiet time with the new bernina. i have jean-ius to accomplish! and drapey rayon challis trousers? and a list a mile long of UFOs!
and buffy. let us not forget buffy.
* i am reliably informed that this is how the cool kids are referring to their “girl dude” friends 🙂
