Girly Summer

Here are the rest of the things I made for DD as part of my summer sewing plan:

Sleeveless top with ribbon at shoulders and neckline; made from an old cotton shirt of my husband (the sleeves and two fronts).

Shorts/Bloomers; made from cotton seersucker in white and yellow stripe.

Design-wise, I found the shorts most amusing. The pockets are really interestingly done, the leg is gathered as in rompers, and the ties are so cute! All in all, it is a very fresh, girly, and current garment. I am planning on making it from pinwale corduroy (in a size larger) for fall.

Dress/ Pinafore Top with gathered straps; made from cotton voile with beautifully raised print. Depending on the length of the bodice, this pattern can be either a tunic or a dress. I like that it can be layered over a tee. The flower pin is not part of the pattern, I just thought it was a nice touch.

I love the fabric. You cannot really appreciate it unless you can see it and handle it. I really want to make something for myself from it, but cannot settle on the design. Maybe next summer…
