I posted a while ago about the patterns I was using to sew things for myself this summer. Here are some pictures of the Simplicity 2599 top and the ruffle skirt.
As you can see, I made the top without the ruffles or neckline detail that come as an option with the pattern. I think the gorgeous Nani Iro gauze print speaks for itself and needs no further embellishment.
The skirt is made in a Kaffe Fassett shot cotton. It's my own design and is based on the ruffle skirt for girls pattern. Instead of three tiers, it has an extended a-line piece with two ruffles at the hem.
OK, now if only the weather gods would roll out the hot days so we can actually wear our summer clothes....?!
