Simple Summer Sewing

Yes, I do still remember where my sewing room is.  I even managed to remember how to thread the machine!  I am sure it was beginning to wonder if it would ever be used again.
It seemed wise to begin with something rather simple.  To make it even more simple, a pattern that I have used previously.


The top is cut in one piece.  Cannot get much more simple!
The pocket is gathered with elastic across the top, creating a tiny ruffle.
The cutest part is in the back, with bloomers peeking out!
Even more cute, would have been some ruffles across the back of those bloomers.  Need to remember that for next time.

Now, that I have one completed project under my belt, maybe I am finally ready to tackle a few more.
It felt good to be back in the sewing room!

We seem to have already settled into sweltering summer temperatures.  My days of playing outside may be over.  Hopefully, that means there will be more time for playing in my sewing room!

Good to see you sewing again, sounds like it was good for your soul. Such a cute outfit, perfect choice for this hot weather. I see you have not lost your touch. Its like riding a bike, you never forget.

I fear my machines will lock up if I turn my on, its been over 3 years.

Will be looking in to see what else you come up with.

Very cute outfit, Jan :) I need to get into my sewing room...I know I have one...I think it's stuck in the back behind the garden, the husband, and the hungry young adults who like clean clothes....
