After a horrific day at work I stopped by Joanns to do some pattern shopping. Shopping fixes almost everything. Simplicity patterns are in sale for $1.99. I really wanted top patterns and I had an idea of what I wanted. I picked out a couple of really cute things.

I picked out fabric for the two top patterns and for the skirt pattern. I didn't really find any fabric for the fourth pattern. I really like the pants, top and jacket on that pattern more then the dress. Originally I loved the pattern for the dress but I think I'd wear the pants and top combo more then the dress. I like dresses but I prefer either pants and tops or skirts and tops. Not sure why but not having anything tight around my waist makes me uncomfortable.

I love this fabric. It's really light weight cotton swiss dot. I really wanted something that was solid white but I love this print. They had several swiss dot prints but this was the only one that there was enough yardage for the top.
I chose this embroidered white cotton for this top. I'm doing the cap sleeve version of the top. I don't' really like three quarter sleeves that much, plus this is a summer top and I want to have nice tan arms.

This one is a nice weight linen. I don't know why the picture is turned like that but I couldn't get it to change the other way!!! Sorry. But it should make nice cute skirt that I can wear to work or on the weekend.

I'm planning to spend all day tomorrow sewing at home. Hubbs is planning to go off for the day with a bunch of guys and do a boys day. I already got my fabric washed and ironed so I'm ready to hit the ground running tomorrow. I might even go down and do some cutting tonight.

I hope you're happily sewing away as I type! Looks like you got some great pattern/fabric combos -- can't wait to see them finished!
