The hot July days we have been having sent me to the sewing room to make up two more Vogue 7717s. This one is from some coral/tangerine eyelet (FabricMart) that I have had in my collection for at least five years. I thought maybe it would be a light summer jacket and even have a coordinating inexpensive (meaning thin and flimsy) knit in the perfectly matched color to make a tank top for the proposed jacket. But then the 90-100 degree F days kept repeating and I made a cool, lightweight top instead. I am never a person who is on the cusp of any fashion trend but I did have to give myself some "atta girl's" for sewing up this color while it was still in fashion.

And here are our Brandywine heirloom tomatoes, obviously happy as can be in this weather. So despite the heat there's still summer fun happening at our house.
Next post, staying cool indoors with some sewing room redecorating.
