A Day of Sewing

I have a few appointments tomorrow, so I decided to take the whole day, instead of trying to work some of it and leave early. I also decided that I'm going to spend all the time that I'm not in a doctor's office sewing. El Hubarino (he wanted me to call him that) and I are taking our yearly trip to the Vineyard for J's birthday the second weekend of July. I wanted to make a few outfits for the trip.

I've got tons of patterns in my "craft" room at home. I looked them over last week and then went to the fabric store. I got fabric to make two dresses and a pair of shorts. I'm going to try to have these all done by the ninth. Oh, and I want to try to fix the tank top that I started last week. I can do it right?

With this fabric I'm going to make the short dress in this pattern. It looks a little busy but I think (hope) it will turn out cute:

Then with this I'm going to make the bluish green short shorts in this pattern. The material is kinda plain, but I had to get it, it was organic, and cheap.

And finally, I fell in love with this knit material. It was 1.99 a yard and I had to get it. I didn't really have anything in mind, since I usually stay away from the patterns that call for knits. But, I have an idea in mind. I have an old pattern that makes just a plain short or long dress with camisole straps. I'm thinking I'm going to make that and then use elastic thread to do some shirring at the waist.

We'll see how it goes, since I'm going to start with that tomorrow.
