Crafting up new things!

Hi everyone, how has it been? Spring is quickly turning to summer weather here. Very warm weather which brings storms and the occasional tornado warning. But the weather helps my garden thrive and grow!

I have two garden boxes

I've also been enjoying those great vintage Simplicity patterns I bought months back. I found some based on vintage bathing suit style halter tops. If you have some basic sewing skills you can make these! The only challenge would be adjusting the bust if you need to, which you can find help here at Curvy Sewing Collective blog.

Simplicity pattern 1426

I picked cotton prints to make these with. The pattern does call for a fabric as the lining, so you can use other fabric beyond cotton. But really now, look at the poodle print?! I want to make a bathing suit top with that print, it's so cute! And these require very little notions, it calls for either snaps or buttons for the back closure. Otherwise the straps tie at your neck or the patterns allow you to sew the straps to the back (as a traditional bra-style). 

If you are on Twitter be sure to find me on there! I try to update it weekly with a few new pictures, maybe a link to crafty projects and little things.
