I haven't made much from Loes Hinse lately - well, truth be told, I haven't made much lately, period! My job is really interfering with my sewing time!! Anyway, my "job" is precisely why I need to be sewing! I don't have anything to wear!! We are having an interminable summer here. Of course, this would be the year that our air conditioner died over a month ago and we chose NOT to spend $6,000 to replace it - OUCH! Well, we finally broke down and bought two window units and are using those to hold us over until next summer. At least we can sleep now - and my sewing room is cool since it is right off the master bedroom - yay!
I bought this rayon blend linen-look fabric several years ago, so I really don't even know what it is, but I'm sure it is mostly rayon just by the feel, drape, and shiny threads in the selvedges. It's fairly heavy, but very drapey. I originally bought it to make a skirt and top, but only bought 2 yards (what was I thinking?) Well, I must have been thinking of this, because I had exactly what I needed. Well, actually, I was a pinch short, so I pieced the flounce, but that worked out perfectly.
I'm pleased with how this turned out and it is a nice neutral look that can change up with accessories. (Just like I have accessorized with this most perfectly darling grandchild!) I definitely see more of these coming to my closet soon!
