Beach and Kayaking Wear

Getting Ready for my Annual Vacation Cottage Fun

This is stretch Matte Jersey from  Gstreetfabrics 

This jacket is a standby and my other typical jacket from chiffons are great bathing suit cover ups in a breeze.  

I wear this one with my Blue kayakin pants and black bathing suit.. and the pink Tank and jacket with my pink suit...

When I make these dresses for the beach-boardwalk, throw over your swimsuit and go out to dinner, sometimes you need a jacket.... Packing your beach wear, these jackets are the best... great for carrying out in the kayak in case it gets breezy ... 

On the Boardwalk you need to blow in the wind so you must carry some chiffon cover ups... to go with your outfits The above jacket shortened a little with pants or long for bathing suit coverup only... is great... This flowy jacket great for beach cover up... tie jacket for kayakin cover up

One of the above quick dresses that have no facings, just a front and back are my sew quick and put on dresses... with matte jersey they don't wrinkle, so great to throw in your beach totes, and add your flowy jackets for a night on the boardwalk, and you can just go straight from your kayak...LOL

If you want long loose capri pants these are good or my legging pattern capri is what I kayak in..with a tank that matches, throw in the back to put on when I am pulling the kayaks out of the water.

You can make these capri pants leggins from Spandex we have at 

This is my pattern with straight legs for work and capri length tight for over my suit, so these pants a tank and a tie jacket are my kayaking outfits and a flowy jacket and dress to throw on for a boardwalk walk over my suit.... packing packing, my summer fun!!!! Cottages here I come!

First you make your luggage and then you fill it!  This years luggage is Vinyl... So much fun!..Well the old kayaking tote must always come with the fabric I designed, I will use it always..Till it falls apart...I designed the outside fabrics from my kayaking trips and covered with the clear vinyl that we sell at Gstreet, the inside is a batik we sell and the trims and handles and inside pocket came from the leather bin... A Creation of Love

Water Bottle Pocket..
