Oh My My My

Ok well quick weekend update.

Well I know you all remember this picture of these fabrics.

Well I whipped up me a quick outfit. I haven't sewn for me in awhile. But, here goes.

My outfit


Started shirt on June 5, 2008
Finished shirt on June 5, 2008
Started the capris on June 4, 2008
Finished the capris on June 4, 2008
Took 1 half hour at the most for the shirt
Took 1 hour at the most on the capris
I cut the fabric and the pattern on the 4th for the shirt and capris
Used print knitted fabric for shirt and knitted fabric for the capris
Shirt size 18
Capris size 20



I had to use the fabric for my shirt to put a little on the bottom of my capris for a little more designed. I didn't like that the capris was to plain.

Here is the patten I used for the shirt. Size 18

It's the red shirt that's on the pattern package. I just didn't sew in the ribbon for the collar part. I didn't like how that looked. Or the little tassels at the bottom of the shirt.

You know me I had to change up the pattern a bit but, not much.

Love the outfit! Can't get enough of capris pants! I like the detail on the pant too!

The outfit is so pretty! It looks great on you! I agree with you about the tassels - I don't like them either. I'm amazed that you sewed that whole outfit so quickly!

Happy early birthday to Nesa!

I SOOO love the outfit!!! I can't get patterns here, like I did at Walmart. I miss Simplicity. I had a real nice collection. Right before I moved, I had the materials and pattern to make a hooded cape for myself.

I agree with Christina - that putfit is really flattering! I love the hemline of the shirt! I have a skirt with a hemline sort of like that. Maybe I should dig it out for when the weather gets warmer around here.
Anyway- you did a fantastic job!
