... oh my, you have no idea how much I need one. I am counting the days now! Two weeks of sun, beach, ocean, pool, Twilight Saga, kids playing happily (without fighting and whining) in the sand... I am painting the perfect picture in my head right now. Let's hope it turns out that way.
With all this anticipation I am also trying to get my "beachwear" ready. Over the weekend I made a pair of light summer pants to wear over my bathing suit. So, I guess it's supposed to be some kind of a cover up: I used pre-smocked fabric from Joann (just the smocked part; not the kind that comes with the skirt/dress fabric already attached to it) and white gauze fabric. I cut the smocked panel in half lengthwise, cut and sewed the pant legs using PJ-bottoms as a guide and attached them to the smocked fabric.
And for some little detail I made this flower brooch.
Now, I still have the other half of the smocked fabric. I think I will make a smocked top from it. Maybe using some fresh flowery fabric; attaching it on the bottom (just like a skirt) and add some straps from the same fabric. I will post some pics once I am done.
Sunny beach: Here I come!
So, what are YOU looking forward to right now?
