Simple Summer

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’.
