turquoise gingham

My sewing skills were summoned once more!. I felt in love with this turquoise gingham fabric and bought it just because I can't resist turquoise, and gingham is also very appealing to me!. Doubled irresistibility!
I used this same pattern previously to sew a purple tunic which I'm wearing a lot, so this pattern has been tested with good results. That made me feel more confident and all the cutting and assembling was easier than I expected (I'm not very skilled!)
The building behind me is our local Museum (link in spanish), a beautiful palace built in the XVIII century, and it's located in a very centric area, a very busy area. It was so strange to see it without usual passersby, delivery men in their vans, terraces, and lots of activity!. Probably, it was too early for all that fuss!
Linking Visible Monday and wishing you a very visible week!

Mis habilidades costureras han sido invocadas de nuevo!. Me encantó esta tela de vichy turquesa en cuanto la ví, y la compré simplemente porque turquesa y además vichy era demasiado irresistible para mí. No me pude resistir.
Ya había utilizado este mismo patrón para coser esta túnica morada, que me he puesto un montón, así que tenía el patrón ya probado, lo cual me hizo tener más confianza y me resultó mucho más fácil cortar y ensamblar las piezas (es algo que normalmente me cuesta!)
El edificio que se ve detrás es el Museo local, un palacio del siglo XVIII muy bonito, y está en una zona muy céntrica y muy frecuentada. Resulta rarísimo verla sin todos los paseantes, repartidores en sus furgonetas, terrazas y toda la actividad! Probablemente pasamos por allí muy temprano!
Enlazo al Lunes Visible Visible Monday y espero que tengáis una semana muy visible también!

More sewing projects to come!. I've been lucky in my last visits to Sunday flea market, and I've bought two pairs of pants from the second-hand pile. Both of them need some fitting, they're really a size or two bigger than my usual size, but I like loose pants, and I like that now I can fit them 'my way'!. I'm also going to remove the pockets from the blue one, as they're placed in the hip area, something very unflattering!.
I'm going to be busy as a bee!

Y más proyectos de costura!. He tenido suerte en mis últimas visitas al mercadillo del domingo, y he conseguido estos dos pares de pantalones de la montonera de segunda mano. Los dos necesitan ajustes, son una o dos tallas por encima de la mía, pero me gustan los pantalones sueltos y así puedo estrecharlos por donde a mí me conviene!. También voy a quitarle los bolsillos al pantalón azul, porque están justo en la cadera, y no sientan nada bien. Voy a estar entretenidísima!

  2. Not very skilled? I wouldn't be able to make such a divine tunic in a million years! It is very cute, and very you! Your local museum/palace looks magnificent, especially with just you posing in front of it! Good luck with your next sewing project, and have a great week! Besos xxx

  4. This is like a refreshing sea breeze!
    I love the colours... so cool and bold.
    A great antidote to many other summer looks that can be a bit samey.
    You are NEVER samey, or boring....I love your style dear Monica!

  5. I've been following your blog for a few months now and I have to tell you how much I love it. Your bright vibrant colors, wonderful jewellery, red hair and great footwear makes me feel so good. And it reinforces my bright, blingy wardrobe choices. (I live in a very low-key, don't-stand-out town.) Love your style!
