Summer UniformPosted: August 24, 2010
It’s not the greatest photo because I couldn’t get the self timer to work right with autofocus – but this is the Summer Single Strand Uniform. I’ve been wearing it a few months, but kept making changes. Longer – shorter – sleeveless – sleeves a little longer…. by now the whole thing has been pretty much dialed in. The uniforms have been going on since 1991. At first each one lasted six months – but now they generally go for a season (three months). So right now there is this dilemma because I’m also making these new panel garments (as part of GFKAS) – so it becomes an daily debate about sticking through the season in the summer top, vs wanting to check out the functionality of the different dimensions/shapes of panels. Plus the lighter weight linen panels tops are pretty darn comfortable in the heat.
