More Playing

I spent Mother's Day at Hollywood Studios with DS2's family. Naturally, I had to make a new outfit to wear. What a great day!! Summer has arrived in Florida so it was plenty hot. I was a bit rumbled by the time we got around to taking pictures. Actually, it's a good test for the wearability (Is that a word?) of outfits.
The pants are Burda 03/09 #117 made with a cotton stretch twill. The top is Vogue 4076 made from cotton jersey. The entire outfit was comfy and great to wear for an active, sunny day. I especially like the top. It was cool and survived the day without a winkle. The pants showed signs of the day. I'm still debating whether I will make them again. There is a side invisible zipper. I started to put it in the back and wish now that I had. Since I've lost 3.5 pounds, the pants are now too big. Wow! I was surprised that little bit could make a difference. I have been working out a lot more so maybe that's the reason. At any rate, I would like to take in the side seams a bit, but I refuse to fiddle with that zipper. The back bag some under the seat. That is a pattern alterative I'm afraid. I'll save the picture in case I decide to work on the pattern in the future. One thing I did learn. I definitely miss pockets for my "play day" garments.
Right now, I'm working on M5393 shorts. They'll fit better I'm sure (lol) and they have pockets.
Have a great sewing weekend!!

Cute summer outfit!
I understand about not wanting to mess with the zipper.. I have some pants to take up and I'm not going there either!!
