Just a quick blog post this week - as I'm just about to go on holiday! Yippee! I'm going to Canada to visit my sister, brother-in-law and nephew. I'm leaving tomorrow (16 August) and returning a week on Tuesday (25 August). This means that orders placed during this period will be put in the post when I get back. I am going to try to ship all orders on 26 and 27 August.
My sister lives near the Rockies and the photo above is of us hiking two summers ago. It's almost impossible to take a bad photo out there! I'm really looking forward to a relaxing week - swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, hiking, reading, barbequing, etc. It should be hot and sunny: a nice change from Glasgow! I'm going to try to take on board as much vitamin D as possible!
Because I'm away, there will be no 'Outfit of the Week' next week. This week's outfit will span two weeks. What is the outfit? It's a lovely shirt dress: McCall's 7084!
This pattern has lots of options - for the collar, sleeves, and skirt. As for fabrics, I've recommended some of our lovely poplins, broadcloths and shirting fabrics. To find out more about this (and next) week's outfit - and to see the pattern and the recommended fabrics - click here.
