Summer Vacation Wardrobe

As previously mentioned, this year's summer vacation wardrobe is going to be mainly 1960s.  I keep saying that "I'm going for a funky 1960s vibe".  Some of which will be more fall type clothing than summer, because we are going to Missouri and Arkansas the end of September / early October.  We'll be in the mountains. It could be pretty chilly.

What I'm already planning on taking:

Two dresses from this pattern:

                  My Zodiac dress and my Bird dress:

The pink shift I made from a vintage pattern found at my Grandma Katie's house:

The Dalek dress:

Planning wise, here's what I'm thinking:

The hooded dress in a funky print.  The Jiffy wrap dress in a Pepsi print on one side, solid blue on the other (I've already started this).  I'm going to see if I can maybe do a little jacket using the bodice of the first pattern, otherwise I'll probably have to make a couple shrugs -- One black, one white.  That should go with pretty much everything.  As well as keep my upper arms covered, even if it's not chilly.

I also downloaded this dress from Burda.  I'm going to lengthen it, and I ordered a Gertie fabric from Joanns for it. 


I'll probably need at least another dress, I'm thinking either another Simplicity 3833 or maybe even the new Simplicity 1012.    Or maybe even Simplicity 1059.
