picnic shirt

This pattern is very loved. I have made countless shirts of this style in the adult version--Simplicity 3835. The pattern I use for Molly--Simplicity 4206 is just as easy to make with a few added alterations. I added a good six inches to the length making it more of a tunic style and substituted gingham binding for the elastic on the sleeves. This is more comfortable, especially on a hot day.
Hope your Saturday has been enjoyable. Did the Red Sox win today? We have been going all day. I am looking forward to bedtime and my book. Exciting for a Saturday night, eh?

That is precious! I love the cherries! Looks like a Mary Englebreit print! What are you reading? I am in between books!
