Summer Clothes Continued
This little cotton top was made using the same Simplicity pattern as used for the sundress (yesterday’s post).
I decided to embroider around the collar Sashiko style (well, my interpretation of it anyway) with black, light blue, and light khaki colors.
My Junie Moon logo works fine as labels which I print on fabric. Rounding the corners helps keep them from fraying and looks nice and neat to me.
The same Simplicity pattern offers pants and shorts options—my money was well spent on this pattern (and it was on sale). I made khaki-colored cotton Bermuda shorts yesterday to go with my top. We’re having really strange weather for Tucson, very cloudy with rain, so photographing the shorts outside won’t work. They’re just shorts and nothing fancy anyway, although I will say that I really like the non-binding waistband and using twill to reinforce it.
