This is the jacket that goes with the hip hugger skirt and slacks. It has a hood and is very short.
This is a sleeveless jacket made from a gold colored brocade. I still need to put on a button and press the jacket. This is the only one like it that I will ever make. Brocade is very hard to work with so I would never pay the price they want for it! My sister gave me this clothe but she said this was the last time for her also.
This is a blouse made from a light weight brocade. This is for Dyhana. and last but not least is the gypsy skirt. Every once in a while I like to just make something for fun. I took all the pieces of brocade that Shirley had left from the project she finished and put them all together and made this skirt.
This is for Dyhana. She can see the gold jacket, the red is her blouse and the blue I forget what I made with that. Anyways it will be a good gypsy skirt that she can use for play. Years ago, when Dyhana’s grandmother and Gina’s grandmother were just babies I had a gypsy outfit that my mother in-law had as a young girl and they loved dressing up in that dress and playing. That is where the whole idea of making play dresses for the kids.
We got an inch of rain so the beans should keep growing. Shanti cakes this Thursday so it will be nice to have the garden last a little longer. Have a great day.
