So, technically, I'm not done yet. But, I do have one finished! So I do have something to post! Summer is getting busy, and with our first camping outing just around the corner I better get my booty in gear on the other one.
So I cleaned the house today, in preparation of Operation Summer Sewing tomorrow. With Honey in school, and Barbie and the Secret Door to occupy Monkey, I may just whip up the second suit, and maybe a Tortola or two for me... in Knit!! That's new stuff for me. Knit is a new territory and it shows on my first suit. Not that it looks bad, but, well, let's just say it's not something I would sell.
So, here it is! A modified Boo! rashie, and regular shorties with foe. One down, one to go!

With camping coming up closer ( we've got sites reserved for July 2, and that's coming fast), I need to have two swimsuits finished, and would love to finish some Tortolas for me, seeing as my summer wardrobe is seriously lacking, as in limited to three t-shirts....
I was trying to fit some shorts, but I'm afraid my limited knowledge is a bit of a problem. So I've given up on them for now. I've decided that I've got enough on my plate, so I'm going buy some jeans from forever 21, (cheap but comfortable, I already own a pair) and hack them into shorts. Drastic time constraints call for drastic measures, right?
Which, in a very roundabout way, brings me to my fave summer patterns at the moment. The Tobago tank and Clover shorts. I can't wait to make Honey an outfit too. She's been asking for one, so after the above list is finished, that's what'll be on the cutting board!
