Rainy Days and Sewing
Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
Little Emmy wants to play...
...in her new summer clothes that she can't wear until it warms up. :)
Blouse, Design # 11
Size 98, lengthened 3 inches
Fabric: Batik cotton leftover from a skirt for my 2nd daughter and leftover from two purse linings. This blouse used up all but the tiniest of scraps.
The batik fabric has just enough of the right color of green in it to coordinate with the green shorts. My favorite part---the two rows of shirring across the front, sewn with elastic thread in the bobbin.
"Goofy Tweed Pants," Design # 11
The pattern photo shows pants made of wool tweed. I cut the lower legs off the pattern piece and made a pair of shorts in lime green cotton twill, topstitched in pink.
