Terry Shorts Romper

Well, this is the follow up to my super cute fabric find!!

This ohhh-sooo-cute terry fabric...

Was made into this shorts romper.... 

My initial thought when I found it was to make a wrap that you'd wear while getting all dolled up for the day.  Then, once I got it home my thoughts quickly changed to a shorts romper to wear around the house or as a cover-up.

I didn't follow a pattern.  Just kinda made it up as I went along. 

It is so comfortable.

Knit Navy Skirt

I know my posts have been few and far between.  With summer activities I have had trouble finding time to sit still long enough to craft and post.  The beginning of school is right around the corner for us so we'll settle in to a routine and I'll have a chance to get back to crafting/sewing!! Yipeee!!

Well, with that being said on to my latest sewing adventure!...

I found this super cute blog Elle Apparel with a tutorial here  that I liked and thought I'd give it a go!!

This is what mine turned out looking like...

 The skirt is really comfortable.  I wore my shirt un-tucked but I tucked it in for this picture (to let you see the waist line better).  The boxed pleats are different for me but I think I like them!

New Fabric!!

Got some new fabric! I have ideas whirling around in my little head! It's pink and blue terry cloth fabric. Sooo soft!  Whatever it turns out to be it will be super comfy!!!

 Check back to see what this turns into!
