So, in exactly two weeks time from today, I will have jetted out of Doha and into somewhere slightly more populated, marginally cooler and infinitely freer when it comes to dressing oneself. On all counts, I cannot wait 🙂 However, after requiring a discreet wardrobe these past ten months, I feel totally unprepared for a summer spent here…
and lastly, another pair of Lisette culottes in Scout Denim linen from Merchant and Mills.
The first pair is extremely cool and comfortable to wear except that they become quite loose during wear. Consequently, for the second pair, I sized down. Upon initially putting them on they are on the firm side; however, during the day’s wear, they loosen up just enough. Next time, though, I would make the next size up. On both pairs, I hemmed a teensy hem as I wanted them to work both on the continent (hee hee) and back here when school resumes in autumn. I highly recommend this particular Merchant and Mills linen for pants as it has weight and substance whereas I think the Tessuti linen I used is better suited for tops.
Will I make either again? Well, after reading Karen’s recent post where she states that “I’m trying to find what suits and sometimes I’m failing,” I could go either way. I love that they are a current style garment but I am not 100% sure that they work on me. Being that I am in my 40s and all that, you would think I had this thing called style figured out 🙂
Until next time, chat quietly amongst yourselves and drop me a comment. I love reading your thoughts and just having people stop by and say hi!
