My daughter needed a top that will be comfortable in very hot weather, so I found this pattern:
I made it up in a crinkle cotton in an aqua tone, a favorite of M’s. I noticed that the pattern is one of those with very generous sizing, so I made it a size smaller than usual, carefully reading the section on the back of the envelope that tells you the width at the bustline. I guessed correctly, and it fits pretty well.
M has also picked out a few patterns she wants me to make this summer:
We like the white blouse in the above pattern and the dresses below, which look like they would be cool and comfortable for work.
