I’m getting married this summer. After, we are going to Portland for our honeymoon. Wouldn’t it be fun to make a Portland Trousseau? I will have to put a bird on it. What goes in a trousseau, anyway?
My in-progress trousseau (apparently brought to you almost exclusively by Grainline – I’m on a kick, what can I say?):
Cute shorts for romping:
- Maritime shorts from Grainline.
Cute pants for romping if it’s a little chilly:
A cute top or two to go with the shorts:
- A structured white woven Scout tee:
An action shot of updating the pattern and my second favorite use of the iPad: reading PDF pattern instructions. In case you were wondering, you CAN place tracing paper over the glowing PDF of a pattern and copy it on the paper. Grainline’s patterns are really really nice, guys. The PDF is actually beautiful; I would consider wearing IT if the paper had enough drape.
And here she is! The finished Archer’s Mutant Daughter. I love this silk print from Hart’s Fabric. I also love buying a half yard less fabric than the pattern calls for because it save dollars and still works out for smaller sizes.
A pretty day dress:
- There are just so many patterns I want to try for this… I don’t even know where to start listing them. This will be it’s own post soon.
An impressive dress for an impressive dinner:
- I can just wear this one.
Last but not least: Something to put it all in?
Just when I was thinking this was a good idea, I learned that some brands of hope chests used for this purpose had to be recalled for suffocating children. You had to know that.
