Simplicity Pattern 2892 / June 2008
The onset of summer and warmer temperatures makes me think back to the days of having the entire summer free and the creative projects that often filled my days. Tie-dyed t-shirts. Beaded macramé necklaces. Candles made in milk cartons using crayons for color. All types of sewing projects including a hooded pull-over sweatshirt made from a bright green stretch terrycloth. To recapture that feeling I bought some colorful soft cotton and a pattern for a top with a ruffled neckline. I've been hand-sewing it which has been interesting. When you concentrate on something creative you barely feel the heat.
