I am nearing end of term and in three weeks we go off to Florida again for two months, where we will both be working remote, golfing, and in my case sewing and knitting.
As I have said in my last post I have shifted gears and have, consistently, become a SWAP drop out because I have neither the time or focus right now to give a proper raincoat the attention it deserves. There is always later as most delusional sewers know.
I decided this morning to snag my husband and do a photo shoot since that is as good as my SWAP ambitions are going to get.
Here are the shots he took in between making bread and building a new hall closet - our renovations continue as the background for these shots show.
So these pictures display the careful styling you have come to expect from me - tops over yoga pants and even a dress over yoga pants, which is probably not how I will wear it in real life. I have class.
Here we go:
All I got done on my raincoat so far. Covering these buckles in New York cost about the same as buying a raincoat in Halifax.
The face you give your husband when he says, "you are standing there stiff looking like a nun, do something with your arms."
The Indigo junction Mod top, I should have done the view with the doubled collar but still love this top.
My sister called in the middle of the shoot to discuss her new wall colour, grey. I think I should use that too if we ever get as far as the wall painting part. One of many versions of the Style Arc Jane top.
StyleArc Ada T-shirt with pockets
Liberty lawn Jane top.
My sister did her wood trim in Winter White with some painting tricks she learned on Pinterest. Oh and the Jane blouse again.
The last shots are all of Vogue 8847 .
This dress cost me $3.00 as it was polyester I bought from my friend Norma and the sewing guild fabric sale.
I wanted to do a muslin sort of, of this pattern since I haven't worn this style since 1982. Turns out I really like the print but being polyester and this being Canada where it is still winter and the house are crackling with static, I can't figure out, or remember, how to keep it from sticking to me. I used to have some spray stuff from the non- green 1980s, not sure if you can get it now.
So that's it.
It's summer stuff from here on in.
