Blue Leopard Print Swim Suit

This little girl's old suit was thread bare and in need of replacing! I had this pattern and had made it before. I was short on time. I really want to make her one with another pattern that I have with a tank top and shorts/skirt on the bottom. But this will have to do for now.

Kwik Sew 3605 - size M -  Lycra swimwear fabric that was in my stash

Back view

Plaid Peasant Top

Kwik Sew 3065 - view D - size L - periwinkle plaid cotton gauze fabric.

No, this does not match the previous brown skirt post. I'm still working on fabric for that! In the mean time I need clothes badly. This was quick and easy, I like the style, and it's cool for the summer! I'm just not sure what bottom I'll wear it with, sigh

Back View - pretty much the same as the front :-)

Brown Skirt for me

Simplicity 2184 view A size 20 - no alterations Just a simple A-line skirt.

I've been sewing, a little bit. I just  haven't been blogging because I've been in the garden and canning season has begun. I figure I better update before I forget what I've done. I'll be scarce in the sewing room for the next 2 months - which makes me sad!

I've been talking to my personal color consultants (aka some of my best friends) and they've decided that all these years in navy blue has been all wrong!  Apparently I am a warm autumn person which means I need greens, browns, pumpkin, mauve, and periwinkle! I have very little of those in my wardrobe! LOL

My wardrobe is in such a sorry state anyway so no great loss! I guess I'll try to keep these colors in mind as I move forward and adjust as I go. Maybe someday I'll get it together!! That's a big maybe!

Now to find some fabric for a shirt to match.....

One More Purse Pouch

I sewed this little diddy up this week too. Hopefully it'll help keep my purse organized! I found the pattern on line here. It was fun & easy. I'll make it again for sure!
