I used a wonderful, at least 25 years old, red with white polka dots rayon crepe for the lining; I have been saving this fabric for the perfect thing, and this was it!
I added all my favorite travel pockets, inside and outside, and am happy to announce that THIS one is going to Sicily, on my back!
I tried something new for analyzing my travel wardrobe; I made a storyboard, which really helped to find the holes and duplicates in what i had planned. Here is a rough picture of my storyboard:
It also helped to have my friend Sharon, from Communing with Fabric, eyeball this several times and give me her opinion...sometimes I get so caught up in what I'm doing, I can't see the forest for the trees!
I hope to take pictures of my final wardrobe in the next few days; I'll be finalizing and adding/subtracting until the last minute, I'm sure! My travel blog, Where In The World Are We?, will begin next Tuesday, in case you're interested in following me (and my clothes!) on our trip to Sicily!
