Summer Outfit, V-Back Top and Shorts

Hello everyone.. As promised in my previous post, here is my new top that I made especially to wear with my orange shorts. The top has round front neckline, V-back, short sleeves, and loose fitting. In the end of my work, I have to make a tube top with straps because the top is transparent :) Summer Top details Material: 1.5 yards of jersey net in black colour and black thread Pattern and modification: I hacked the bodice pattern from Built By Wendy Dirndl dress size S. I worked on the front bodice first by removed the dart. I slashed the dart and drew a straight line from the dart point down to the waist. And then drew a new waistline. After that I worked on the back bodice by removed the dart and added 1.5 cm to the outer side. Then drew a new line of the side and waistline.

BurdaStyle Boy's Shorts

Hi everyone.. Today post is the continuation of my weekly update "Diy Friday" . Sorry for not updating my diy's episode for so many weeks, I have been busy with a lot of good things :) My little boy needed some new shorts to wear on summer. All his shorts are getting small and tight at the waist. Well, I decided to search my stash and found leftover of knit cotton that is enough to make two shorts. Yay! Materials: knit cotton 3 cm wide elastic thread Pattern: Based on BurdaStyle Boy's Sweatpants 10/2013-124 size 110.

I have no difficulty because I already made the first shorts for my son Halloween costume, you can pop over here if you are interested -  Mickey Mouse Costume . I worked on the pattern first, by glued the two pieces of the front and bac
