I love summer. It is so ‘simple’ and easy to get dressed in the morning.
I made 3x Cutting Line Designs Pure and Simple shell, a Relax A Little Vest and 2 skirts from In The Trenches patttern. I used the In The Trenches skirt as a Starting point. I had the medium weight navy pin stripe linen in the stash and felt it looked a little conservative made into a straight skirt. So I decided to run the stripe at right angles and “cut ” the pattern into four and used elastic cord and toggles for the waist instead of thicker elastic. I made it shorter, added small slits at the side seams and mitred the corners to make it ‘sportier’.
