Peculiar Purple Pie Man

A fun and airy summer shirt.
 I used McCall's pattern M5388 and a vintage Strawberry Shortcake sheet.

Simplicity 3835 (take 2)

My lemon shirt is so comfy I decided to make another shirt from the same pattern.
I used the leftover vintage linens from my nappy bag. This one ended up being a little "patchwork-y" for my taste but it will get worn simply because it is comfortable.

Simplicity 3738

 A cute summer top for myself.
The olive green is Robert Kaufman Kona Cotton and the blue floral is a cotton vintage print I picked up at a flea market.

Simplicity 3835

I loved making this shirt and I love wearing it.
Super simple pattern and a nice airy summer top.
I did lengthen the pattern because otherwise it was pretty boxy.

Pirate Party

I began a tradition of making my son a shirt to wear at his birthday party.
This year we are celebrating with a Pirate Party!
I used a store bought shirt and made the applique using skull and crossbones print fabric.

Keeping in pirate theme.
I also made a skirt/swimsuit coverup for myself to wear at the splash park where we are having it.
