Happy 4th of July

Simplicity 2369, gifted fabric gray stretch knit (thank's again Trudi). Love this top, I was going to cut out the dress but didn't have enough so I made the top instead. View C with the buckle from view B.

My buckle is on the wrong side and I ain't changing it.

I've been meaning to make a pair of black leggins since the Over the Top challenge and I'm just now getting around to it. The pattern is Butterick 5514 circa 1991 so I'm sure it's OOP.

I didn't have enough fabric to make them ankle length so I let the fabric decide how long they would be and I'm really happy with the length, they are mid-calve.

Had to squeeze in some 4th of July fun, this band was pretty good, definitely old school but still fun.

This is the real reason we went to the park, little guy in the wife beater appears to be having his moment in the sun, my GS is of course wearing his Spiderman swim trunks.

I hope everyone has a great 4th of July.

Your top looks great and I'd love to see it on you. I have this pattern in my stash.

That's a pretty wrap top. It could be worn as a jacket over a cami or tank as well. Very nice.

Hey Tanya, Love the top. BTW- We couldn't tell the buckle was on wrong. Lol.

I love you top! The buckle is very cool. I like hardware like that on clothes.
