Lime Modest Swimsuit

 The pattern is Modest Swimwear that I made a while back for her older sister. It's a size 6 that I graded down, mostly by sewing deep seams. The fabric is from JoAnn's. It turned out okay and usable but next time I'm going to make the skirt a titch longer and do something different for a shelf bra. I made my own bra cups and they work okay but next time I'll make a full shelf across.

Shavuot Skirt

Oh my! I am so behind blogging. I've been sewing but nothing has made it on the blog lately. So here I am playing catch up. I don't even have pictures of everything I've made lately. *sigh*

Today we (youngest daughter and I together) sewed a tiered skirt for her. She loves it!! She did about 1/3 of the sewing, including much of the gathering stitches! She absolutely loves to sew!

It's from an Instructables page that is located here:

Fabric was all from the stash. The 2nd panel looks gray in the picture but it's actually a fun crinkle chambray that is light blue.
