Seersucker is for summer. I like the whole “Great Gatsby” feel of them. What makes me really happy is when it’s modernized with an interesting pattern.
The Anthroplogie catalouge also came in last night. I love Anthropologie. But, I generally cannot afford them. I kind of think the money is worth it because I like thier design element. But, it’s just not in my budget. That, and thier stuff does not fit me paticularly well.
Have a look at these $88 ‘whale watching’ seersucker pants. I have two shades of seersucker waiting to get made into something.
These pants look an awful lot like Vogue 8131.
My only concern is that the very talented Erica B. seems to be the only one to make them work on PR.
Let me be up front and say I’m making a plug. I love Blueprint magazine. I love that it covers food, home, health, fashion… everything.
But, here’s why you should love it my sewing sisters. The fashion editor is a sewer. Almost every issue has something you can make. This month, it’s a swimsuit and coverup.
And this $280 dress? I believe that Christina over at Assorted Notions made a pretty close facsimile.
They even have a quilt pattern this month!
Ok. I am going to pour a glass of Monkey Bay, crawl into bed and finish reading this month’s Blueprint.
