I'm back from a week in beautiful Moscow, ID. No sewing since before our mini-vacation, but here's a little review of two halter sets that I made my girls before we left.
The pattern is Simplicity 5531, purchased during a JoAnn $.99 sale a few months ago. Instead of woven fabric I used some wonderful stretch knit from my stash that was purchased from a Fabric.com clearance sale last fall. I wish I knew the manufacturer because this stuff is great! Instead of hemming, I simply serged a rolled hem on the bottom of the top and shorts. Both sets were finished in 1 1/2 hours and the girls have declared them a new favorite!
