After cleaning my closet of things I really do not wear or will probably never wear (of course, I’ve kept pieces that I can restyle and re-purpose); I decided that I needed some pieces for summer.
I have a bountiful fabric stash mostly from friends, estate and garage sales, and freecycle. (Check out freecycle.org in your community).
My eye was drawn to a beautiful printed pink fabric with tiny colorful squares and a white cotton with imprinted flowers. I was thinking of making a skirt from the white cotton, but later chose to make bermuda shorts.
The other fabric that drew me, was a smoked gray lightweight knit. I decided to make a halter top and elastic waist pants. It came out wonderfully!
I also have a beautiful green fabric that I would like to make a 50s style dress with a bountiful hot pink mesh fabric flower to pin to the front. That’s my work-in-progress and will reveal later.
