We spent two weeks in Greece in the middle of October and let me tell you, it was glorious!

Friends, I did not pack light. I didn’t bring a lot of clothes–it was the shoes that weighed down my bag–but of the clothes I did bring, many were items I made myself.

In fact, I was quite happy with how comfortable I was the whole time and how active I was able to be in my clothing.

Climbing the Acropolis in my black linen skirt and a cotton top I made in 2011(I think) from New Look 6921. It’s a nice quality quilting cotton with a pattern of brown, black and grey circles and dots. The skirt is from Vogue 7937.

IMG_1528.JPGI climbed the big hill on Delos wearing the same skirt and a top made from the same New Look pattern in 2011. I get a lot of wear from those two tops in the summer.

Wandering around Santorini for a hot afternoon in my striped Maxi Dress. We were on our way from Mykonos to Crete and we had to change ferries in Santorini. So we had a few hours on Santorini.

Another picture of me wandering around the ancient rubble of Delos. These pictures are out of order a bit.

Chania, Crete. We climbed to the top of one of the bastions of the old wall. I wore my linen sailor pants as often as I could get away with while we were in Greece. I feel great in those pants and it’s too cold in Vermont now for them. But they were perfect for the trip.

Breakfast in the courtyard outside of the little apartment we rented in Chania. I paired that top with the linen sailor pants a lot for a kind of dressy outfit.

The window of our little apartment in Chania. I think I wore this on the 2 1/2 hour bus ride from Heraklion to Chania. Very comfortable!

Besides this black linen skirt, I brought my black cotton maxi skirt and blue merino top. I wore the maxi skirt–which has pockets–on the plane ride both ways and I think a ferry ride or two. It was comfy and kept my legs warm. A perfect garment for traveling!

Anyway, we had a great time and took gobs of pictures. All of these are courtesy of my husband who took them with his old Canon point and shoot. I think they came out really well.
