Sewing projects

Had a very busy holiday.My sister-in-law and brother-in-law came here from Ohio with their three kids.Don't forget I have four of my own.The kids had a great time.I had them all outside most of the time.When they left I had to take a long nap.

Well I was able to get back to sewing after a couple of days.I had been seeing in sales ads and magazines Bermuda shorts.I guess they are back!I had simplicity 3867 D and it had some Bermuda short on it so I had some fabric in my stash so I made them.I don't know what kind of fabric it was but it did have some stretch to it.These short was very easy to make.They are great for the summer so I will make some more later.The tops I have on with the shorts are Simplicity 3956 view C.I made those tops back in December.The changes I made was I didn't use a zipper on the tops.I had alot of trouble with that,so I left an opening and added a button at the top.I would not try this because it is hard to get on.I can get it on because I have a small bust line.

Gorgeous outfit-looks stunning on you, the color suits you beautifully!

I imagine a nap was very, very much needed-but it's so nice when the family gets together.

I really like your color combinations on both tops, and the shorts are very flattering. The only thing I've made from Simplicity 3867 is the purse, which came out really well. Thanks for sharing.
