My boyfriend and I are talking about going on vacation somewhere tropical - probably Jamaica. My problem is that I have no clothes to take and no idea what to wear there. What are some things that I could make as a vacation wardrobe?

Sarongs are very versatile, you can use them as swimsuit covers, skirts, dresses, wraps/coverups at night etc.  THey are easy to make as long as you buy a piece of fabric long enough to wrap around your waist (usually with a little extra).  They are super comfortable.  I also recommend broomstick skirts (the wrinkly kind) because you don't have to worry about them being to wrinkly (I have a dress made out of that material as well).  Jersy is supposed to pack well also.  I hope that helped.

Kaftan/tunics - they are super easy to make (the back and front can be cut out the same and the sleeves are easy-peasy)

ok, some/all of this is probably obvious and you'll think *well, yeah, tell me something I don't know* but here goes anyway.

You definately don't want to be ironing on vacation (hell, I don't even do it normally!), so make sure it's all crease-free clothing.

To a hot place, I'd normally take:
  • a few simple, sleeveless, lightweight, stretch tops
  • at least one top with short/bracelet length sleeves that was lightweight as well (in case the breeze picks up in the evening)
  • I never go anywhere without a well cut pair of long black pants (very lightweight and loose for hot weather)
  • at least one A-line skirt (even cooler than shorts and give a bit more coverage)
  • make sure you pack bras that match the tops (some of my tops won't work with certain bras)
  • if you're planning on going on somewhere nice, like a nice restaurant, maybe you could pack one of the "Quickie" dresses from this thread http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=104089.670


Have a great time!
