Travel and preparing for the journey takes planning including wardrobe planning.
Threads mag had a travel planning article. So I’ve made two key pieces courtesy of Minerva Crafts UK.
Wool cardi wrap
Threads suggest a shawl as a key piece to wear and to act as a blanket on the plane. This navy blue wool wrap is my ‘shawl’. I’ve made this wrap, Simplicity 2603 a bunch of times so I know it works.
The fabric is super fine, which means using a simple straight stitch and some ‘steam a seam lite’ to finish the edges and overlocking the seams.
Silhouette yoga pants in a dark colour with a soft wrap top has worked for me in the past. I’ve looked at some travel jacket patterns and decided to add a pocket in the yoga pants.
A fact of life for Aussies and Kiwis is when we want to hop over to Europe or the States, that means we have an 18 or 22 hour flight so you have to be comfortable in ‘cattle class’.
Budget, budget, budget.
Note: These scissors won’t be travelling with me when we travel. A holiday includes no sewing. I know. That’s just madness right?
