I need help! I travel to Malaysia in September to meet my husband’s parents for the first time and I want to stitch up a few easy pieces of clothing to wear when I’m there. Here’s the problem, I am very pale and do not handle heat (let alone humidity) well at all—it actually makes me sick usually. I also have a tattoo on my ankle that I am worried will offend the inlaws. I guess I am at that stage of the trip planning where I am pretty much freaking out about everything. Any suggestions for fabrics I can sew with that:
(1) will help keep me maybe a little cool or at least not make me even warmer
(2) won’t show sweat (or at least not too much?)
(3) are fairly easy to sew and pack
PS – Bonus points for any help re the tattoo. Right now I’m thinking I make some soft gauzy fabric strips and connect them to my sandals then crisscross up the ankle to make it look like all part of the shoes and not a big cover up!
Can you post a direct link to the pattern, please? I can’t find it.
