Holiday Wardrobe Ideas and a horrible discovery...


50 days to Mallorca is it long enough?


Long enough to get a nice set of outfits together. I am taking a five minutes break from heavy studying and madness in work to just sit back ( it is way past midnight and I am wide awake- just a perfect moment to jot down some ideas). So first, I should say that there is a couple of things I am very pleased from my last holiday, that I am definitely taking this time:
Calvin Cline linen ampire waist dress ( worn here dining out with my family last year)

Here is me with my mom wearing my khaki maxi- Dunnes Stores €5 

Another dress from Dunnes- A-line shape, very sixties

These lovely threesome are definite winners and I love them to bits.

What I did NOT like and will avoid at all times is this: 
TARTY!!!!

I just call this look WTF!
my Python dress didn't really stand up to my expectations either. What a waste of a wonderful fabric!

This year I promised myself no more horrendous outfits. Not even to be tempted.

The sad this I have just realised is that I have lost half of the pictures from that holiday- I usually bring two cameras and it seems to me all photos from one of them are gone! This is a disaster, I really hope there is back up somewhere, this could be a real tragedy if they are lost! And it really looks like they are ((((

Well this year I am going to print them out. This digital photography nonsense has been (although very convenient) a lot of losses. I have at least three holidays pictures lost with all this files transfers and backing up, copying folders ( sometimes newer ones replace older ones and the memories are gone in a flash. I am actually going to have all my holiday pictures for the last 5 years printed after this, I am really sick of these horrible discoveries. Whatever it may cost- I might even have to sell my kidney to pay for that LOL- there's loads! Did you get in similar troubles ever?

So back to the wardrobe!
I think another maxi should be considered. There is a lovely black and white print lycra I have- it is nice and cool in the heat, so I am thinking something like a transformer dress.

and if we get a chance to go clubbing, maybe  this Burda 8/2011 pattern 116 should be given a chance: 


At least the top part of it, and then clinch it at the waist and add a draped or tulip skirt? I also saw a version of this dress in leather looking fabric and it was fab ( cannot find it online now), but again, the bottom shape of this dress will just look very unflattering on me, so I will have to think about it, maybe/definitely try it out on a muslin first.

I would like to give a pair of shorts a go, but here I am in a totally unfamiliar territory. So muslins, muslins again with different styles, to find the best once to conceal, not emphasise my low wide hips. Any suggestions?

The main thing I learnt by now- less is more. Better have some space for fabric shopping, hey?
So, hopefully, I will be showcasing some new garments with my holidays in mind in the next 5 weeks.

My daughter, who is 12 soon, has been growing so rapidly, it is not even funny. I discovered today that her hand is bigger than mine (((( It is hard to come to terms with, as she is just a baby for me, just like any parent knows. But as she is outgrowing me so fast there will be a need for a whole separate wardrobe- so more sewing for me! And maybe she can join me and learn to do it for herself- I must pass the skill to her, just like my mom and grandmother did.

I am hoping to have a new guest blogger here soon and I will be back with a tiny report on Me-Made May week three on Monday.

But so far- don't forget about my fabulous giveaway- it will only last till next Friday!

  1. You have a lovely family!  I like all your favourites too.  I think we all sew stuff that just doesn't suit us or our lifestyle.  Sometimes even when something is well made and well fitted it just isn't right and you just don't realise it until you "road test" it.

  2. so true, Karin. In fact, most of my made outfits ended up in the charity or rarely worn. Me-Made May challenge shows, I wear just a couple of them regularly. I love making summer clothes, but here in Ireland it doesn't get warmer than 25C and even at that it is a treat- too breezy and wet most of the time.  I am positively living in a wrong country LOL
