I have several stacks of quilting and craft patterns that I've started going through to list in my shop. It seems some of these would be a great place to start sewing and have set aside several for consideration. Then, I picked up this one - Versatile Calico Cats by Yours Truly.
Back home, I selected some green Calico Fabric, of which there is about 3 yards. This excess fabric led me to decide on a pair of bottoms to go with the top. Having a couple thousand patterns in the house makes this type of decision quite easy. I decided on Simplicity 8213, primarily because it had the elastic waist (easy), it was the right size and it is already cut.
The pants seem huge. I hemmed them up further than the pattern called (look Ma, I'm already doing alterations!), but I'm afraid they will be huge on her. But, I'm pleased that I conquered both these simple projects with no major issues.
Okay, what next ????
