Two Summer Projects from Shirley

Today we have 2 pieces to share with you from the same very talented reader, Shirley Clark of Logansport, LA! Above is her take on our Toddler Two-Piece bathing suit (a free pattern in issue #130). Shirley stitched her granddaughter Shelby a pink seersucker suit and trimmed it with green rickrack and a green monogram. Super sweet!

Shirley also made another free pattern project from a Sew Beautiful back issue, Erin's Sew Easy Sundress from #119. She made it her own in a chiffon-like fabric by leaving off the bottom ruffle and adding a sweet lace trim. The dress is lined and ties with satin ribbon at the shoulders.

Thanks for sharing your projects with us, Shirley!
