First up is the Super Basic Tank Top from Halfmoon Atelier. This is a free pattern if you subscribe to her emails. As the cost of patterns is quite significant I do love a freebie! I made this in the pink and white stripe jersey and I have made an orange one, and have a red one ready to sew. It has a similar scoop at the back which I really like. I love having bare shoulders and arms on a hot day although these days I tend to wear tank tops only in the garden. I do like to get a tan while I am gardening.
Second I made a 'shell' top from this gorgeous 'countryside' border print. I have had this short length of fabric in my stash for ages, but have no idea where it came from! I had just enough to squeeze this shell top made with Simplicity 8061. The pattern has several different necklines and now I have nailed the fit, I will make some more!
Last but not least I made this loose shirt in a gorgeous yellow print slinky fabric from More Sewing. This is really loose, and lovely to wear on those really hot days. It is made from McCalls M7629. I have some more 'slinky' fabric in a dusky pink print to make another.
Both pairs of shorts are from Lands End. I ordered the dark blue pair when I received an offer, and liked them so much I ordered the brown ones, which by then were in the sale. Bargains! They are smart enough and long enough to wear outside the garden!
