A Quick Sewing Hit

I bet you all are beginning to think I don't sew! After all, it's been a while since I've posted any projects.

I just finished up a simple project--more pj pants from McCall's 2476. As you might recall, I posted on this pattern when I made the last pair back in March. After completing that one, I had 3 more pairs cut out and ready to go, just for this kind of occasion. You know, when you want to sew. Right now. No pattern adjustment, no cutting out. Because the serger was threaded with beige thread, I made the 2 that went with that shade. Ahhh, I feel all better now.

After the last pair, I need to come up with another project like this one has been. Pj pants are great, but it's finally starting to get warm here and soon it'll be hot. Too hot to wear pj pants. I'm thinking of:

  • Kimono style robes in a shortish length. More cottons! These would be great to throw on while I'm getting ready in the morning.

  • Tank-style short nighties. I have a tank top pattern that I've been working on for a while (umm, the last 2 summers). The tank is fine, and I'm thinking that it would make a cute nightie if lengthened a bit (and if the bust dart were moved downwards, grrr).

Or I could just get going on a "real" project that involves some effort!

LOL! Ummm ... shelf bra??

I used that same beach umbrella fabric for a scrub top for my sister.

Nah, I'm not putting a shelf bra in a nightgown. I'm amazed at how much "lift" is due to a bra, though.

I got my umbrella fabric from Joann's clearance. It would be a cute scrub top.
