Opposite to what I made you believe yesterday I rather sewed this cute play suit in light blue linen – it’s the fabric I bought at the Dutch fabrics market last Saturday.
I decided that it would be even more comfortable to sit in my sewing room in the cool basement than to burn in the sun at the public pool….
For the upper part I took the pattern of my rosewood silk dress which is prepared by simple blouse but with prolonged shoulders. And for the downer part I took the pattern of the IKEA fabric shorts but adjusted the center and width according the upper part – I will show you next week in my next tutorial.
Last time when I sewed the silk dress it was incredibly much work to finish it and I thought it was due to the slippery material. But this time with linen it was the same – it took me more than 10 hours to prepare the pattern and do the sewings. Additionally I needed to spend a lot of concentration to switch the pattern of a dress to the try to make a play suit.
My beloved Daligramme bag by Lanvin and my heels by Joop (these ones would also match) can be perfectly applied to complete the look needing a bit more accessoires to not appear as if one wears a sleeping suit. So I grabbed my shiny sunglasses by Blumarine (different but cute ones here) – and ready:-)
