Vacation Sew and Serge with MacPhee Patterns

It’s vacation time!  What a great excuse to sew some new clothes!

Using mostly MacPhee Workshop patterns, my suitcase is packed.

I’ve packed 2 pairs of culotte length #407, “Wrap Pant” and 1 full length pair in a white crinkle cotton.2014-06-16 11.49.21IMG_2564














Here’s one of the  #336 Two Hour Tunic Tops.

doneI still wanted a pair of wide legged pants, so I modified the Classic Pant395 by making the legs wider, and adding a fold-over waist finish.  I love how these feel and fit.IMG_2556  The fabric is an ITY knit, available from Distinctive Sewing Supplies, an on-line supplier in Oakville.  Stretchy, non-wrinkle and cool to wear.  

I had a piece of a co-ordinating  solid and made a simple top using 303_20120828150611#303 Classic Top and Dress.



Then, using the same pattern, I made the dress in a piece of fabric from my stash.IMG_2563  It’s mid calf with side slits, and I really like it.

There!  I’m ready to go, and taking Linda MacPhee on vacation with me!  And she doesn’t even know!
