It’s hot here, and the humidity is wicked.
We’re facing a string of thunderstorms marching from inland towards the coast. Some dissipate over the range, but the rest come and drop their load, accompanied by much fuss and heavenly fireworks. When it’s rain, it’s welcome, but hail, less so… Given that the heat through all this remains above 30°C/86°F, you start sweating the minute you walk out of the door.
I retreated to the cool of my sewing room, and whacked together a dress suited to the conditions. It’s the same Burda pattern as the lilac spotty top previously posted, but longer, and I’ve made it in a very lightweight viscose. Instead of putting in a facing to finish the armholes and neck, I’ve used bias binding to keep the weight and warmth down. It’s lovely! Touches at the shoulders, skims the rest.
It’s starting to be the time of year when I don’t leave the house without an umbrella but at least now I can be cool and comfy..
