Since I just posted all the stuff I've sewn for my kids in the last 6 months, I thought I would post what I've made for me.  I think it's been about a year since I last posted what I've made for me.  Many of these are patterns I made - a few are modifications.  The orange shirt below - the sleeves and inset is my own fabric design that I got printed at spoonflower.  Let me know if you have any questions on the construction.











Just the skirt -





Shirt + skirt (made the skirt a few years ago, though)



Shirred dress - swimsuit cover up











SKirt only



Back of skirt  - didn't turn out so hot



Hard to see - it has a bunch of knit scraps sewn into the neckline and the front is completely lined



Dress - my own pattern





Traced off a RTW tank for this pattern -



Same tank, but with fabric I designed.  Got it printed at Spoonflower in organic cotton knit



Swimsuit



Thanks for looking!  Smiley

Thanks so much everyone!

Eliea - those types of pockets are called cargo pockets and really aren't that hard to do.  You just have to go slowly and use lots of pins when you are attaching them to the garment. Smiley

They are my favorite kind of pockets. I have tried to do them before but they didn't come out as nice. Will have to try them again. Smiley
