Summer Clothes

It’s time to spruce up the summer wardrobe and Katie was first up with a couple of new shirts. First is a short-sleeved raglan shirt in Heather Ross’s adorable mendocino fabrics:

New Shirt

This is a modification of pattern #18 from the latest issue of Ottobre (03/07) size 122. Bascially I shortened the length and the sleeves to accomodate the fabric I had on hand – scraps from a quilt I hope to finish and show you soon. Since this photo I made her a pair of shorts to match.

The other top is this halter top. I just love this deer fabric from Jay McCarroll’s woodland wonderful line. It matches the tree fabric — from Joann’s — perfectly. I made this pattern up on the dress form while Katie was at school so the fit is a little off — dress forms don’t move — but Katie really loves it so I think she’ll be wearing it a bit anyway.

    Adorable! I wish I could work up the nerve to sew some clothing for Ellie. All I can imagine is a lot of swearing. LOL
