bad pose, cute clothes

Note to self, put some thought into the pose, and dont just ask husband to snap a quick shot as he's rushing off to work...
oh well...
here's the top i've been working on (i added the pleated strip at the bottom to make it longer)

and, inspired by some of the skirts in the Alabama Stitch book, i turned an XL mens shirt into a skirt with an elastic waist...
my faborite part is the chest pocket turned hip pocket... it was placed perfectly! all i had to do to this was shape the sides a little and add a place for the elastic, easy peasy and oh so comfy and cool for these hot summer days at the playground!
