The little linen pants are just sitting here, waiting for me to deconstruct them. I am so seriously not in the mood for that right now. That's a project for first thing in the morning, so maybe on Saturday.
I had mentioned before that I wanted to make a top to go with the pants, #140 from the BWOF April/08 issue. I really wanted a nice white cotton with tiny pink rosebuds; unfortunately I couldn't find any. There were plenty of fabrics with dainty rosebuds, but all on cream backgrounds. So I went in a completely different direction an picked the daisy fabric on the right.
The blue fabric on the left will be used for the casings and drawstrings on the pants. I may also put a bow at the center front waist to mimic a drawstring.
My 16 year old daughter wants blouse 114; apparently she has a desert hike planned and doesn't have a thing to wear. Anyway, the blouse is two dots; I think I can probably handle that.
Before I get to that, though, she's been patiently waiting for me to make her a purse from some Asian-inspired brocades she picked out. Then a top for me, then the Burda top. I'm trying to take a page from the Everyday Sewist's playbook and do something every day, even if it's just pre-washing a fabric. Not my usual modus operandi, but maybe I can make it work.
