About my Paris wardrobe.
My daughter and I both decided to travel light and I'm here to tell you that never again! Next time I want my stuff with me !
I was so busy sewing for my DGD and my DG that I didn't take much time for anything too complicated for Paris. However I did make a beautiful robe/nightie set that I absolutely love.
The fabric is a beautiful lingerie weight poly/lycra. I added lace appliques to both the nightie and robe with Liquid Stitch
Sorry , no pics of me wearing this but I love it! I used an old OOP pattern for the robe and M6559 for the gown.
I also made a black linen jacket .
This jacket wasn't a real success due to fitting issues. I used Silhouette pattern 1825 ,which I've used before and thought I had worked out all the glitches, but no.. The collar and pockets were my own design.but there's just something really wrong with the sleeves and armscye of this one. But I did get a pic in our Paris apartment. I was ready to go out to dinner.
Yes . I know . This dress is navy blue but .....
The only other pieces I made were two pairs of scuba knit palazzo pants, one in black, the other in
and a pair of black slim legged pants.
No great wardrobe pics at all so none to show you.
Oh , and a Pamela Roland skirt which I love!
My Paris trip seems a distant memory now and I have done a little sewing since, again mostly for Tamara. I'll show you another time.
