- one pair of linen cotton casual pants for walking down the shopping strip or even going to dinner with a zipper extending the length of the pants and zipper back pockets.
- a pair of linen shorts based on a St John design sold at Neiman Marcus for $250 with a zipper design below the front pockets.
- a nice relax fitting casual top with a beach/city scene on the front
- a very comfortable cotton knit dress that can be for walks on the beach or a swimsuit coverup.
In addition to those pieces, I have included a previously sewn top that I didn't have much to wear with. It is the ivory matte jersey top from a previous post.
This was a load of fun and all pieces will be in my bag when we go on our beach vacation later this summer!
Enjoy the pictures below:
I'll start with the pants. These are Burda Magazine 07-2010-104. These were very difficult to make; took me a whopping 8 hours and the Burda instructions were fairly useless. Please check out my pattern review for more details.
Here is a pictorial of how I did the front pockets :

Next we the two tops. Both are easy to wear and appropriate for beach and beach side attire. One top is actually a dress that can be worn as a long tunic or can be tucked under as a short tunic. The other top can extend from the beach to the strip. My Review.
My review for this dress.
