Summer in south Florida. Warm, humid – incredibly strong rays of the sun…
In June or July, I’m travelling to Orlando to visit David and my DGS, Preston. They’re in a new home! Such fun to see the new digs. Plus – P.’s in various camp activities all summer, and the highlight of my visit will be watching him play soccer.
He’s such a soccer player! and was named MVP in his league last fall. Then he and his teammates won the league championship this spring. My grandmom heart beats loudly.
My challenge is to wear something that doesn’t force me off the viewing stands. I have soooo much scar tissue, all over, that my skin doesn’t respire well. Read as potential heat distress.
So, I’m thinking that my recent Scout Tee – cropped, done in cotton seersucker lawn – with a pair of light calico shorts will work. The tee:
And a cute fabric from JoAnns for shorts – it’s a Parisian fashion theme, dress forms and so on. I really like it!
My shorts will not be short! I’ll use Vogue 9217, the Kathryn Brenne pattern, along the lines of my recent muslin.
It’s really nice to plan for a trip, a visit, an event, with family. I’ll be back with more once the ‘outfit’, including a huge sun hat from my inventory, is complete! Maybe with a parasol, definitely with sunscreen 🙂
Anyone else sewing for summer doings?
