Sew What Do I Wear? Vacation Edition - M4M and P4P

Hooray! Another blog tour hosted by the lovely ladies at M4M and P4P - this time we're all sewing up great outfits for a vacation - and for a change, the sun is actually out in the UK!

For my vacation pieces I wanted some staple items and tops that are good for layering - perfect for the changeable British weather!

For my first item I used some really light drapey knit to make a M4M Mama Claire - this top is so cool, as you can wear it either way round - with the cross over bit on the front or the back which makes it really versatile. I used the long waistband so I can ruche it up to wear with jeans or shorts, or pull it down longer so I can wear it with leggings!

Next I used some grey jegging knit for my P4P SOS knit pants which I hacked to short length - I love this colour because it will go with pretty much any colour top! And the best bit - they look like a pair of denim shorts thanks to the pockets and faux fly, but they are so much more comfortable!!

Last up I made myself a P4P Summer Kimono out of a mystery fabric - It's stretchy like knit, but sheer and looks more like a chiffon! This is such a great layering piece - I can throw it on over a strappy top and jeans on a cooler day, or use it as a cover up for my swimsuit at the beach.

I just hope the sun stays out for my summer holiday so I can get lots of wear out of these pieces!

Make sure you check out the rest of the beautiful ladies on the tour throughout this week to see what ideas they came up with - some have made full capsule wardrobes!
