Here's the rest of what I completed in July:
Amy Butler Pendrell:
Once I finished the shirts, I had to stop everything and take care of some sewing room maintenance. My ironing board cover looked like this:
I grabbed some vintage fabric from my stash (of course) and made an ironing board cover.
After I finished my ironing board cover, I went back to work making a sheetlin (muslin out of a sheet) of these Tofino shorts.
I've been wearing them for a week and.... I LOVE them. Finally a pair of sleep/lounge shorts that fit the way I like. Lower rise bermudas. Score! I haven't had decent pjs in years. When I was clearing out my closet/drawers, I had to admit that the 2 sets I made a couple of years ago were ready for the trash, so I tossed them and made these. Purchasing pjs was completely out of the question because they don't fit me well. I find the shorts too short and too tight in the hips while being too loose in the waist. Irritating. So, my tofinos paired with a tank, they are perfect for summer in Florida. So, me being me, I cut out a ton of them and am sewing like mad to complete them so I can fill the empty drawer and have some proper jammies.
Until next time, Happy Sewing!!
