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!
