    You are not alone. I also have this problem. I am interested in the answeres too. I would think as a lining a thin voile would be great, but I am no expert. I am playing with the idea of making a simple slip myself and use it underneath.

    Wow!! Thank you Sarvi and Sarah… those tips are really great. I will definitely look everything up online. I am missing the names of the Fabrics in French… I will research. I know that in Montmartre there should be a big nice store Reine. And someone told me about a store in the area you are talking about, I forgot the name. I´ll check that out too 🙂

    Yes, it is important. This weekend we were starting to have a dark conscience about leaving the kids (2 and 4 year old) with Oma und Opa… but now we are over it!! 🙂 A friend of ours told us “don´t worry, my parents didn´t even leave us with Grandparents.. they payed some agency and flew away to save their marriage!” And it worked! The couple is already 50 years happily together… so we will definitely be drinking some Champagne to that!

    Thank you Lightning. This is very good information. I am brave 🙂 I ride on my bike through the city (Berlin, Germany) the whole time… but I have no idea how it is in Paris. I am really excited.

    Thank you ladies for your support. I will definitely try it out… My Latin american half tells me to eyeball the size of the pleats… and my german side tells me “stop, do the math”. I will come up with a formula and let you know how it went or if it worked.

    Hi Linda! I´m sorry I will also be commenting on the hat and not the road trip pattern club. I have the book… but one day couldn´t find it and just printed the free pattern of the bucket hat… I made the same size I had made from the book and it turne out smaller… so it is really not you, the free pdf is smaller than the pattern in the book.

    Thank you Sarvi and Liesl. I´ll keep my eyes open. Esprit has some styles that are somewhat similar right now… even a sleeveless one. I am happy because usually I need to buy bigger sizes in order for my chest to fit in… I´ll work on it and let you know.

    I have the smaller range of sizes. I guess I could draw the lines, but I was kind of expecting the pattern to be perfect… and I really thought it was me, but it is outside the grid lines. Maybe is a little thing that can be fixed. Thank you for your responses.
