Ideas for Seersucker Social ’11

31 May

So, the DC Seersucker Social is this Saturday. Originally, I thought I was going to make a dress. But, decided a skirt and top would be way more versatile. I remembered this skirt from the February 2011 Burda, #120

I mean. Really. She’s already got a bicycle. I was powerless to resist. It’s going to be a bit boxy on me in the twill I picked out. But, will be great for the ride and this summer.

I’ve also decided to make a vest out of seersucker. It’s from the February 2008 Burda. Seersucker is not mandatory for the ride :) But, thematically I sort of have to do it.

Actually, I’ve made it before. The black version faded and shrank in the wash.  Still in my closet because I refuse to let it go. So, I’m going to make it up again in seersucker.

I made some headway this weekend but, I’m not done. So, I’ll be sewing every night this week and some on Saturday morning to be ready by Saturday afternoon. And, if I don’t finish in time, I can just wear a pretty dress.

    The vest is very cute…but with having to work every night and on Saturday to finish, can’t we just go on vacation again…

    Take Care…

    The bicycle is a pretty pink, too. I remember that vest. Wasn’t that made in honour of The Cop? At the time, I didn’t think I wanted one, but seeing it again now I think I will go home and trace this pattern off. I have some really nice fabric I can see made up in this pattern. Thanks for the inspiration!

    That vest and that skirt together are going to be too cute. And in seersucker! It’s going to be a perfect summer outfit.
