I retired back in August and am still getting used to life (very easy and loving it) but find that I am lacking in a lot of clothes for my new life.

I plan on sewing all sort of things and at this stage it looks like this:

  • Orange Bondi Dress - sewn and worn before 26 December (working out how to post a photo)
  • Multi coloured voile Kate Top -Tessuti pattern
  • Taupe shorts - self drafted pants pattern
  • Periwinkle Blue linen Kristin by Seamwork
  • Periwinkle Blue linen shorts
  • Coral knit top - Kwik Sew 3740
  • Brown shorts
  • Alabama Chanin Orange and Sand top
  • Blue Swimmers - Kwik Sew 2868
  • Blue and Grey kaftan (for swimmers) - Hot Patterns - Peachy Beachy poolside coverup - not sure if this works with the rules.
  • Blue polka dot Asha Dress by Stylearc

Importantly all the fabric and patterns are from my stash but do want to dig a bit deeper to see if I have some blue linen to replace the periwinkle blue as it will probably work better with my plan.


Here is the Bondi Dress by Tessuit patterns, I forget to get a photo when we were out and now need another occasion to wear it.
