Me Made Holiday!

It was tough packing for my summer holidays this time round. I need to pack light (just in case luggage overweight for the return leg like my previous trip), and I have limited wardrobe selection for my all-rounded body. I packed some dresses, leggings, various outwear (cardigan, jacket, sweater) all prepared for a 10°C-20°C. Lo and behold, it was above 20°C most of time, and even rose as high to 35°C, so there goes the chance to layer and I had to repeat my clothes as they are. Nonetheless, I managed a me-made-holiday wardrobe this time round and here are they (some of which are featured for the first time)!

  Frilly Sorbetto Tunic is made as part of my first MDO (mother-daughter outfit). For the adult version, I improvised the sorbetto’s panel to be added as a ruffle/frill down the center front. I wore the same outfit, but with an infinity scarf instead of a denim jacket for shopping and Britzer Garten in Berlin.

The dress takes on a simple shift dress pattern – a favourite pattern whenever I have a pretty fabric to work with. It is serving me well, just that it’s just a tad too short for teaching now. Definitely another favourite!
