Comments: I love this skirt. It is very simple to make and it is flattering. It is just two pieces - front and back. Rather than a waistband, the waist is finished with bias tape, so it is smooth and comfortable to wear. I can whip up one of these skirts (from pattern layout to hemming) in about an hour, so it makes for a quick, easy summer skirt. I have plans for some winter skirts with this pattern as well - I see them in faux suede and lightweight tweed.

This is another T-shirt from my TNT pattern. I have at least 8 shirts made from this pattern now and I'm positive I will make at least 8 more in the future.

Conclusion: Another fast addition to my summer wardrobe. What I like best about this outfit is that it is cool for the summer months, but because of the warm colours, it will work throughout autumn as well.

Shannon ~ thanks for sharing some of your summe sewing with us! I am sure that when you are out and about now you look so well put together...one of those women that people stare at and wonder how they do it! And I especially like this outfit...I agree that it will work great for those first few weeks of school when fall hasn't really arrived yet!

I love this outfit. I also love how more woman are looking put together in a very comfortable way when they are out running errands. Had a BBQ for The Princess yesterday - she wore a dress, I wore a dress and one of the guests wore a dress. Everyone else was "sloppy." And I'd be willing to bet we were far more cool and comfortable.
