Hello everyone! It’s June 1st and that can only mean one thing–GRADUATION season! Oh the excitement in the air is so great! My son graduates tomorrow, along with a whole gang of other kids our family has come to love. I made a beautiful dress to wear to his graduation but I’m afraid I may not be wearing it because all of a sudden we’re reaching triple digits in the weather. The forecast says 100 degrees tomorrow, and the ceremony is outdoors at 2:30 in the afternoon. If I wear the dress I made, I may be dripping wet with sweat before the end of the ceremony. So, I may have to pull something cooler from the closet. One thing is for sure–a BIG, floppy hat is in order (which was already in the plans anyway). What will I wear now? Oh, the wardrobe trials of a sewing mama!
2-Piece Mix & Match
Well, this cute little 2-Piece number is not the outfit I made for the graduation, however, I may consider wearing it. I want to wear something that will cover my entire body because I hate tan lines (and I’m sure to catch a tan in that sun tomorrow). This is a very light weight fabric, but I don’t think it will matter in 100 degree heat. I’ll still be hot. Shucks, if I wear a swimsuit, I’ll still be hot. Haha! This 2-Piece set was created using two different patterns (details below). I really like the options that come with creating the two pieces using the same fabric. They look fabulous together, but the many styling possibilities as separates are exciting too. The top would look amazing worn with a pencil skirt, and the skirt would look hot with an off-the-shoulder top. All around, I think this is a winner.
