We are going on VACATION...

... 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?

Really cute, and a great idea! Have a wonderful vacation! With all the beautiful things you've been sewing lately...R-E-L-A-X! And then come home and make some MORE beautiful things!

Those looks perfect for the beach. So light and the fabric flower is a great touch. I didn't know they sold smocked fabric without the dress part attached. I am going to have to look in to that at my Joanns. You got me thinking. Also, I hope your vacation goes as mentally planned!
