however,. the postman delivered a package this morning containing 1 vintage seersucker tablecloth.
a tablecloth i had bought to make a kaftan with.
what's a girl to do but make that kaftan!
it is a very simple design (check out the lovely 'beach vintage' blog for instructions) consisting of a vintage lace doilie and a seersucker tablecloth.
here is the gorgeous design on the tablecloth i used.
and here is the finished product!
so..... even though it is 6 degrees outside, i know what i will be wearing (in the comfort of my centrally heated house), when i drink my 'summer' gin&tonic tonight!
