We're Back and Some More School Wardrobe
We're back from Salt Lake City, and we had a nice time - my brother's wedding was very special and he and his bride were glowing and very happy.
Before I left, I was able to get three more garments cut out for my daughter's school wardrobe, which means I'll only need to make one more skirt for her, once these three pieces are done! Yay - because I've also promised my son a couple of new blazers for the fall, and I'd like to get those made so that he can use them when the weather is cooler.
These are not exciting or new patterns by any means, but here they are. The dress is Simplicity 3775, which I made previously in the round neck, short-sleeved version. This one has the cross-over top with v-neck and long sleeves.
Having too much fabric to throw out, but too little to make another top, I was able to cut out another Jalie 2564 camisole. She can wear this one under the dress or anything else solid.
I was able to find in my collection some decorative elastic to finish off the top edges and make the straps:
Both pieces were extremely easy to make, which was really nice to work on after the suit!
Parting Shot: Antelope Island. I'll be sharing a few pictures from Utah over the next few days. My husband has all the photos of the city itself, while I have more photos of the landscapes and side trips. Since we were there, we took a small trip up to Antelope Island, which is in the Great Salt Lake, connected to the mainland by a seven mile causeway. Here are just a few images of the island and views across the lake. The landscape definitely has a "western" feel to, complete with sagebrush.
