What I wear on holiday. Packing for all weathers!

People keep asking me what I wear on holiday and if I take only me-made clothes.
The answer is that it depends on where I am visiting. So here are a few examples of what I take with me.
The one thing which annoys me now is that cabin baggage has mostly been reduced to 5k. A good portion of that for me is taken up with necessary medication and my electronic devices. I used to enjoy short breaks where the cabin allowance was 10k or sometimes more. The hold luggage has now been reduced to 15k mostly too. When I am in holiday I like to wear all my nice clothes, so I have to admit that I pay extra and then I can take 20k.

My last holiday was to Austria which is somewhere I absolutely love. The climate is wonderful but it can change in an instant so you do need to be prepared.

How to sew The Serendipity Willow Tunic A MCBN post

Pretty Flamingo Tunic Top

I love the combination of tunic top and cropped pants for summer and I was therefore delighted to have been given this pattern and fabric  by MinervaCrafts for a blogger network post.
Embroidery is so fashionable at the moment too, and so are Flamingoes so what better way to adorn this tunic than with embroidered Flamingoes? My embroidery machine is the Brother Innov-is 800E from . Do look at this machine Brother Innov-is 800E and the other embroidery machines in the range and give Jaycotts a ring to discuss which machine best suits your needs. The number is 01244 394099

 The post itself is on this link. Serendipity Willow Tunic
So do fly over there right now and read all about my experience with this rather lovely sewing pattern ( and the near disaster I almost had!)
