Trust me. I am under no illusion about the quality of my selfies. But I don’t have a camera much less a photographer so sometimes they are a necessary evil.
This is an outfit I wanted to show you. It is made from muslin in a bid to construct something cool and comfortable for March, which is a steamy month with an occasional glimpse of Autumn. I chose this fabric because of the shade. It is a very pale ice green…..a colour that I love.
The construction was very simple. Tucks on the bodice front and 3/4 sleeves which are finished with elastic at the base. Because the muslin is so light and the weave is open, the top was lined with a white lawn from my stash.
The skirt was made from left over scraps of muslin and I ran up a half slip from the white lawn to wear under the skirt. Both have a elastic waist.
And the result? A deliciously cool and comfortable ensemble for under $10!! I think I will make another one in white.
