Living as I do in the North of England, which is currently under flood alert with the heaviest rain of the year beating down, it’s easy to feel you probably have all the clothes you require and that you dont actually “need” anymore. Well I’ve just got back from Turkey where it was 34 to 35 degrees most days and strong sunshine with it. I ended up feeling hopelessly overdressed and stuffy and sweaty in jeans and vest tops, compared to all these backpacker types in sarongs, bikini tops and shorts. Plus for a Brit dressing stylishy and simply in the heat is not a skill we ever really have to grapple with. I’m now trying to identify some patterns for very cool dressing in the heat – so I am more prepared next time. So far Mccalls 6111 and the shorts on Burda 7195 are possibles. Any other ideas for very cool tops and dresses? I’m ater trapeze-style tops and dresses with spaghetti strap or halter necks with no ties or belts or zips if anyone knows of any
