Planing for the heat

To escape the Olympics we are going to Morocco and it will be very hot so I have been thinking tunics and kaftans ...browsing the web I found... not a lot actually.

I was looking for very soft muslim like indian cotton once NOTHING so I had to remind myself that I make children's clothes and made one. I also choose some nice silk bits from the Summer Collection as silk is excellent for the heat, in the hope that my girls will agree on wearing them.

People like Lindsay Kemp, who worked with David Bowie on his miming performances...took her classes
