This is a Simplicity pattern #2188.
Mine are about the same length as the ones on the pattern, so I guess they turned out the same. The thing is, I SHORTENED mine by 2 inches. Otherwise, they would be mid-calf on me. Whatever! I like them the way they turned out.
I will show you some pictures, BUT please keep in mind that I have been sitting in them most of the afternoon and evening, and my dog INSISTS on being in pictures. WHY, OH WHY did I train her to pose for me??? She will be lying on the floor napping, and when she sees me get my camera, she immediately runs over to me.
LOOK! I put my camera on the table and backed up for the camera to snap a pic in 10 seconds, and here came Jackie.
Here she is posing for me waiting for me to take her picture:
She is SO ADORABLE, and you can't tell by the pics, I know. She OOZES sweetness!
Here are the shorts that I made -- which you have already seen above -- but here they are without a dog attached:
I want to make a blouse to go with my new shorts. Color-Blocking is all the rage now, and I really don't care for 99.9% of it, but I thought I would try to color block a top to go with the shorts. I doubt I will ever wear the outfit anywhere but at home, but I want to experiment. Maybe I will buy some more NON-Juvenile fabric and make this again.
I am going to make Silhouette's Sonya blouse again because it has lots of areas for color-blocking. My problem is I can't make up my mind WHERE I want the frogs and WHERE I want the pink. I don't want it to appear -- IF anyone was to ever see me in this -- that I am on my way to a Bowling Alley.
I scanned the line drawing of the blouse.
I then scanned both fabrics and plugged them into the blouse.
WHICH version do you like the best, and you can't say "NONE, Lady, you need to grow up and quit wearing frogs when you are 63 years old!!!"
So what do you think????
I'm not sure I like any of them, and I am now thinking about piping in the princess seams and the yoke.
My sister called to remind me that Dancing is on. It is Disney night. The darling girl with no legs is crying because her legs don't work right for the waltz. THANK YOU GOD for my legs -- swollen ankles and all!!!!
