A couple more summer pieces for my daughter. The top is the same pattern as this one from last year and the skirt is the Oliver and S Lazy days skirt. Both super simple patterns, perfect for quick bursts of sewing time.The fabrics are all from my stash. The mermaid fabric I bought on Etsy quite a while ago and I can not tell you how much my daughter smiled when she saw that skirt. Pink and mermaids and ruffles!! I made the tulle ruffle myself, it took forever but I knew she'd just love that little detail. I added the pocket for found treasures.
The temperature has reached record levels here, eighty degrees yesterday! We've been hanging outside a lot, sitting on the deck and having snacks outdoors and lounging in the sun trying the chase away the last of the spring colds we've had.
It is strange having this warm weather so soon. On the one hand I feel like it is a gift and we should be enjoying it on the other hand as my friend said, "it's great but it signals the apocalypse really doesn't it." She's a gloomy sort sometimes.
