    I would sew the lace onto the T-shirt and not cut away underneath. I'm short-waisted so a shirt being too short is not usually my problem. White shorts Hopefully I'll cut off the navy poly shorts tonight and put hem tape on. The hem fell mid-kneecap originally. These will be more dressy than the navy shorts I already have.

    Finished the navy poly shorts.
    I found this free PDF hat pattern to try, looks easy enough and I have plenty of suitable fabric to try with.

    That looks like an interesting hat project. Let us know how it goes.

    I will be home sewing today, waiting for the plumber. I think I'll work on stuff that is already cut, get some small projects out of the way.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Use it up, Wear it out,
    Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown

    Copied a existing top onto tissue paper and made 1 top from fabric on hand. I did something that did not work well on the neckline, so I may re-do later. (learning experience). I'm going to cut out another top. These are silky-type summer tops that match existing simple elastic-waist skirts I already made. Not a lot of fabric required due to simple neckline and no sleeves. However there are interesting possibilities with contrasting binding or trims.
