A few years ago, my belle-mère came home from Provence with, as always, lovely gifts for all of us. That year, she gifted me with a white with brown polka dots linen smock. As sweet a gift it was, it looked terrible on me. I looked like I was wearing a sac de patates! So, into the pile of ‘to do something with one day’ it went.
For the last year, I’ve been slowly de-cluttering my home and, at the same, trying to get things done that I’ve been putting off for a rainy day. While cleaning up my atelier last week, I came across the white linen dress that I had tossed aside awhile ago.
So, this afternoon, with the help of some indigo dye, scissors and my sewing machine, I transformed the sac de patates from bleh to a lovely yay! tunic. I think it’ll now be well worn!
Happy last weekend of August!
