Wardrobe Basics and the Garden out of control!

We planned carefully this year... not wanting to crowd any of our plants... but we still have an jungle instead of a garden!! haha!! Its just a tiny garden space... but do we ever get the most out of it! Just check my Bald Man out with his sweet corn he loves so much!





Yellow squash and zucchini are abundant! My pepper plants are doing well... and Bald Man's roma tomato plant is loaded... and I have quite a few heirlooms waiting to ripen ... which I'm excited about!







We also have snow peas ready to eat! And in the works... eggplant, acorn squash, spaghetti squash, cantaloupe and so much more! I'm gonna need to hit the vegan and vegetarian web sites for some veggies recipes!

As for the sewing I've been doing... all basic stuff.... like these shorts below...
I'm working on re doing my favorite shorts patterns because my booty is higher (and firmer) than it was and my pattern no longer works!

The bottom pair was the first wearable muslin I did... not perfect yet... still working! As you can see...



Though not the perfect fit I'm wearing them anyways here... with the new tank top I made (yes! more pink camo clothes!!) And this little vest I made.... The fabric is a bridal embroidery type... I saw a similar one in a fashion mag but it was long and a bit more dressy... my version is short and sweet... more casual but could be dressy up.

Another easy one shoulder tank... made in less than an hour.... both of these tops are knit fabrics...
And a chiffon, animal print tunic. I used my felting machine to dis stress this fabric which made the animal print much brighter and ofcourse gave it a really cool texture detail... that you can't see in the photo... I added some lace to the neckline... another cute detail you can't really see.. sorry!
Well thats about it... I have some embroidery projects I really wanna get to soon! I'm still working out and my body is still changing with the workouts so I'm really trying not to sew very many clothes... unless its knits or something easy to alter! Like shorts!
I've actually bumped my cardio up to 6 days a week... along with my weights 4 days. The new workout I'm doing, which is in last issue of Fitness rx, is awesome and I'm responding very well to it!
God bless and HAPPY 4th!!!! Have a safe wonderful holiday!

Your garden looks great with lots of goodies. Now, ours does look like a jungle. There will not be any posts showing that mess! Good for you. I tend to procrastinate about sewing basics. I cut out shorts two weeks ago and still haven't started sewing them. As usual, your outfits look terrific. You have a nice summer wardrobe.
