Summer Strawberries

It feels so good to dust off the machine and sew something after the break from this move! It’s so close to being summer that we can actually use a warm weather outfit so this was perfect timing. And I love strawberry anything!


The shorts are this pattern and sewed up so fast and easy that I will definitely be making more in the future! I printed it at 100% for an 18 month size and the fit is perfect.


The top was just kind of thrown together┬ábut I used this as a starting point. I obviously omitted the sleeves but I also reduced the shoulder width some, extended the hem about an inch, and curved it slightly. I didn’t get a picture but I put a simple button with elastic closure on the back and added a pocket on the front to make it look less pajama-y.


I was worried that the added length would make the top too narrow so I put these triangle inserts on either side.
