To open, I love the True Bias Yari jumpsuit. Unfortunately, mine, size 8, is just too big on me. Since I used a lovely Kaufman expresso yarn-dyed linen, I’ve taken the plunge (after months and months) and recycled it.
Pants! I cut the pattern below the second button and went from there. Since the crotch was very low on me, I raised the pants and lowered the hem for a better fit.
I folded the top a couple inches to form a cut-on waistband and added 7 belt carriers.
Parting shot: I have an unusual tree in my back yard, a tapioca – Manihot esculenta – aka cassava. It was trimmed along with my mandarin tree last fall, but my understanding is that it simply grows with abandon if not harvested for its roots. And it seems to enjoy the partial shade of the back corner of the yard. It is blooming like crazy, small, pretty blossoms, and it’s about 20′ high. Check out those leaves, so unique.
The Green Garden Girls came over yesterday with a plan for the front yard. Beautiful, I’m so excited. It combines tropical lush with bungalow charm.
Next up – not sure, I think I’ll finish my Cheetah Moon harem pants and just think about the challis in the stash. BTW, I do plan another Yari, I think with short sleeves like an aviator jumpsuit! Future…
Feeling blessed – Coco
