Summer style for me & the girl




Simplicity 1627 - one of the cutest little girl patterns ever! I love the ruffles, the corset back, the gathered straps, and the yoked skirt, plus the bodice offers a great space for embellishment! This version is perfect for the 4th of July plus a visit to the Statue of Liberty in a few weeks.

I also have made a number of new tops for me: 
Ottobre 2/2013 top made with Patsy Aiken Fabric
The Rock n Roll top from Pattern Review/Angela Wolf
Another Ottobre top!
...and yet another Ottobre pattern - this time with a ruffled knit print from Joann's
McCall's 6563 - not a knit, but a fast summer top

I have one more knit top to stitch up, but I am ready to explore some other projects...just have to decide what! I'm looking forward to a trip to NYC in July. I have to go to Mood, but where else is worth a look. I'll be able to drag the family along on a fabric odyssey for a few hours.
