I am loving this breezy simple outfit. This is my second version. The skirt was made from a cotton shirting bought locally. I used Burda 8176. The only thing I changed about the pattern was to insert an invisible zipper instead of a regular one. I thought a cleaner look was needed, given that the zipper is in the side seam.
McCall's 6036 is a fun easy pullover top pattern. I made this top using an XXL men's T-shirt bought for $5.00. I've had the material for the skirt in my stash for about 2 years, but I couldn't find a knit I liked with it. So while shopping for my boys last week at Old Navy, I walked through the men's section to browse through the T-Shirts for fabric! I found the perfect colors. Sometimes you just have to get creative to find what you need. P.S. I am now loving my Janome CoverPro for hemming my knits!
This is my first version made from the same two patterns mentioned above and a purple men's T-shirt from Old Navy. I used the higher neckline on the pattern for this one. I went with the lower neckline for the red top.
My name is Shannon, but my siblings call me Mushy... I am a 44 year old wife and mom. I started sewing in junior high or high school on my mom's Viking. I had an amazing Home Economics teacher who taught me solid techniques. By my junior year, I had sewn a Vogue Bellville Sassoon dress, rated "advanced" for prom. Sewing runs in the family. I was bound to catch the "bug". I hope to inspire you to pursue your sewing interests as I have been inspired by others in the sewing community to pursue mine. Thanks for visiting!
