Too many items to post, I’ll make a special summer holiday bundle if you don’t mind. It was our first proper holiday in 4 years, so reason enough to make some new items!
First up: the Va-va-voom maxi dress. Casual enough thanks to the cotton jersey and the T-shirt sleeves. Evening appropriate through deep petrol colour, the supple fabric, long slit on leg and low back. Extremely comfortable yet very elegant. And easy to sew.

Next: the Street-worthy pyjama. A dark-blue cotton jersey overall, comfortable enough to sleep, lounge and travel in, but still classy enough to wear to the restaurant. I had planned to make a faux-verall, but ran out time. Has anyone made one? Any advice?

And finally the itsy-bitsy-romper! Not very age appropriate (I’m 45) but when it’s more than 30°C and no-one knows you, I thought why not.
Sadly our tiny Greek island had no fabric shop or market, Alex (Sewrendipity), Lesley (SewSleepDeprived), Tassadit (RueDesRenards) and Tifaine (Madame Tifaine) will understand how empty-handed I felt… so I bought a baby olive tree of 18 months instead!
