Loving the Love Notions Sabrina Slims…

Top: New Look 6323

One or two was not enough…more Sabrina Slims!

I admit that sewing has slowed down a bit in the loft. I think it’s because I’m really enjoying my ‘culled’ closet. It has only my very favorite clothes now – and it’s so easy to choose something to wear. Who would have known? Less is more?

Well, not always. I really love these Sabrina Slims. As soon as I finished my first pair(s), I ordered a couple fabrics to add some new fun to my spring and summer wardrobe. Of course I wanted white – it’s seasonless down here. And I wanted a floral print, because the inspiration pics on the web were so nice when done in a print. Oh, and apparently floral pants on trending this spring. Like I need an excuse…

I used a medium weight (10 oz) cotton spandex knit from Girl Charlee for the white pair. It has 4-way stretch and is perfect for these pants. And as long as I was doing repeats, I made another McCalls 6987 tunic to go with. I don’t see much of this tunic on the web, and I imagine it’s not terribly popular – the envelope pic is awful. But I really like it. Done in challis, it’s weightless and just floats around.

And here’s is the floral print! I love it. 

This is also a cotton spandex knit from Girl Charlee – mid-weight at 8.5 oz, with 4-way stretch.

Let’s see – what else… Last weekend I put down 100 lbs. of fertilizer in the garden. Not an easy task! But it’s that time of year, and I need to fertilize ahead of the heavy summer rains. The palms are putting out flower spathes (pollen everywhere), and the mahogany trees have shed their leaves and are sprouting a beautiful new green canopy. The plants are hungry!
Other than that I’ve been just monkeying around. A monkey muslin…
Ciao! Coco

  1. Cute versatile tops and pants. I did the major clothes cull recently as well. It really is nice to just go in and know each piece is wearable and loved. Sparks joy!

  2. I love this look on you and think the floral pants are just what I need for fall. We are edging into warm weather now and that means following the rule of “no fabric touching skin unless necessary”.

  3. Looking good AND comfortable! I think I need to head on over to Girl Charlee and check out some pant fabric. Glad you have room in your closet to show us more goodies. Love the monkey.
