Sham's Post for details and pictures), then I spent almost a full week doing a major clean "out and up" of my studio and then had a wonderful weekend visit from DD Maggie...we celebrated her May Birthday, Mothers' Day and my June Birthday all at once. FUN! And... she got behind the camera to do a photoshoot on all my new clothes, both sewn and RTW. It's so much more fun to do that with someone, rather than using a remote control! After we finished on Sunday late morning, we went out for a lovely leisurely brunch at Petros' in Los Olivos...
On to the clothes...
I made this top and these pants for my trip to Oregon...
The fabrics are both from Girl Charlee, a black, red and gray sweater knit, and a gray stretch denim. And to go with them, I made this wonderful red raincoat
V 9070 in a juicy red rainwear with a little metallic thread in it, both fabric and pattern from Marcy Tilton.
Of course, we had wonderful sunny weather in Oregon, but the coat is fun to wear anyway.
Also, before I left, I made these wide-legged pants in a silky crepe (black and white, of course!) I can't remember which pattern I used, but they are very cool and comfortable.
and this one, with sleeves...
found these lightweight rayon pants:
and this breezy Chico's top, bought with my now-canceled Indian trip in mind...
P.S....I'm heading over to the "Hat Attack" at the lovely Judith's Style Crone blog...come see all of us in our head gear!

Oh my. You are so fabulous. I love every single thing in this post, accessories included.ReplyDelete
I am so inspired by you and grateful that I can enjoy your wardrobe as I am now drastically reducing my own. Getting rid of almost everything to become a full time nomad is forcing me to focus on a new "look". A few perfect pieces, a uniform of sorts. Can you imagine that!?
So many lovely outfits!!!ReplyDelete
Hope you had a very Happy Birthday! Such fun outfits! You always put together the most fun, classy looks. I even love the poncho, and I'm not a poncho person...lol! Maybe have to rethink that! Love your shoes, too :) Enjoy!ReplyDelete
Never too many photos!ReplyDelete
Happy birthday you magnificent woman of style! There is so much to love here, and thanks, by the way, to Maggie, for being the photographer. Having two people involved adds so much life. The red raincoat stole my heart for sure and the very bold black and white poncho. And those platform sandals, oooh, very nice as well. Thanks for this great update.ReplyDelete
What a wonderful fashion show! Thank-you for sharing.ReplyDelete
Wonderful photos! Thank you for sharing with us.ReplyDelete
Margy, Where has this post been? It JUST showed up in my feed. grrrr.....anywho, I love all these clothes and have some of the fabric used in that sleeveless tunic from Portland. You are looking quite svelte lately :-)ReplyDelete
Such a wonderful post!! I enjoy seeing the things you make and your beautiful ensembles. I also LOVED the glimpse of your decor!! I'm guessing that with your travels, you've collected some beautiful pieces. I love eclectic, global decor.ReplyDelete
Portland is one of my favorite places to visit, and I love Canon Beach as well. Thank you for a lovely post. XXOO

LOVE that poncho - and the colour-matching spaniel! Your home sewing looks so professional, the idea of making a raincoat would terrify me but your red mac looks fabulous.ReplyDelete
