A Little 70's Ensemble


Hello, and happy Friday!

I HAVE SEWN GARMENTS TO SHOW YOU!  :D


Behold, a super adorable halter top with matching linen shorts!  Ah-dorbs.  :)

The pattern (below) is from 1976!  So cute, right?  I sewed the version that the little red-haired doll in the middle is wearing...  (Oh and, HOLY PIGTAILS.)


I picked this pattern out of the stash because I'm sort of on this mission to have a go-to shorts pattern for Emmy.  I'm not a fan of spending $15-20 at a store for shorts that I know cost like $3 to make, and take so little time.  This one is a really good pattern - I think I'm going to make just a few tweaks to have perfect go-to shorts!


Halter deliciousness!  Is there anything cuter than a teeny baby back?!

I used a super soft rayon-something for the halter (same stuff as this blouse) and I think it's from Joann.  The shorts are a turquoise blue linen and I have no idea where it came from.


I added the pin tucks down the front because I was so charmed by the way the shorts are creased on the pattern illustration!  Cute, no?  I wanted to make that a permanently adorable detail.


Here's a better shot of the shorts.  I LOVE the shape!  And they are so basic, I can add all sorts of details!  Love, love, love.


So there you have it!  Two very satisfying sewing successes!

More to come!


Have a great weekend, all!

  12. I totally agree shorts don't cost much to make. I'm still trying to find a simple, cute pattern for my 2 year old.

  13. I know it, they use such a tiny amount of fabric! My goal is to really perfect a pattern & upload it so that ALL of our two year olds can have adorable, affordable buns. :D
