Using cotton scraps of fabric from blouse leftovers again, to sew little items of clothing like this swim suit:





I have lined the front of the boyshorts and the whole bra triangles with the same fabric. This is made in 3% lycra cotton knit, and the top ties around the neck and in the back with the straps.

Yeay for Hot Florida, that inspires me to sew only summer stuff in the middle of the winter...i wish I could see some snow this year...

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.
