As ridiculous as it is, I made a skirt to wear on the plane just 2 hours before I had to travel.
Yes it does match my suitcase colour
I know. It was just an elastic- waisted skirt with two seams, darts and a hem, but still. I feel all Great British Sewing Bee about it!
Sometimes the #SimpleThingsInLife are the best.
Let me show you a better picture of it
Keeping it real here with slippers and morning coffee.
You can see I made another version of BurdaStyle 023/2016 #103 , too. This one is in delightfully patterned cotton jersey that came to me via designerfabricsaustralia. Its super stretchy. I think it might ends up as marvelous pajamas.
Back to the skirt. It was fabulous for travelling. Easy to move in. Maybe a bit short? Fabulous bright colour. Didn’t crush or wrinkle much. Scuba, so 100% polyester. Lucky it wasn’t too hot…
What did I see and do whilst travelling? If you follow me on Instagram, you might have already seen some of this…
Beautiful Turkey through the plane window. Great weather started even before I arrived.
Scenes around St Pauls Catherdral- walking around on the day you arrive is jetlag remedy #1.
Berwick St London fabric window shopping – jetlag remedy #2
A day in the London office. What a building! With the early morning view around the Strand on the walk there. I was so lucky with weather.
After all that hard work (seriously, it was great to catch up with the London team), I was off to Brighton for a wine conference.
I know. My life is very hard.
More about Brighton (Ditto Fabrics!) in the next post.
