am wearing here an outfit I wore to death. I mean the outfit's death, not mine, obviously...
This photo is marked in my album "4 1/2 months", which is the age of our eldest son who I am adoring here; isn't he sweet? Ah, the days when I measured the age of the children even down to the half month!!
I have no idea of the pattern I used... but it comprised a pair of very loose shorts with an elasticised waist, and a very oversized button up shirt with two large breast pockets. In the very best early-nineties tradition. I made this version in a cool light linen mix, in co-ordinating fabrics. It was comfy and easy to wear, and being so super-sized I managed to wear it during the best part of two pregnancies as well as when not pregnant, and still looked quite fashionable, believe it or not. Such were the days when the in-look was for HUGE clothing. Funny times. An elasticised waist is an anathema to me nowadays.
I wonder what will characterise the styles of today, when we look back in ten or twenty years time?
