Simplicity Top and Shorts

Simplicity Top and Shorts

I made this little outfit for Fiona a while back. I was on a sewing high and made up a bunch of stuff for both the girls.

This was from a cheap Simplicity pattern, I'd link but I can't remember what it was, it doesn't matter though, the pattern sucked. I have so many mistakes in these two articles of clothing, and although I will take credit for a few of them, the pattern made no sense at all in many, many places.

After the top was done, I had to reseam it all over the place because otherwise she looked like an overweight clown. I am pleased with the shorts though, I've never made pants before and I thought they would be soooo hard, but they were easy and fun. Plus, she wears them fairly often, they are nice and stained now, sure sign that they're comfy. I definitely plan on making more pants for my kids this fall, just need to find a decent pattern.
