I went shopping this morning with the girls. We'd had a few days at home, most activities still not started up yet and it's been too hot for the park or bike riding. We were going a little stir crazy, so to the shopping centre we went. It's quite a small centre at the moment, but it won't be for long. There's a flurry of building activity and it looks like it's doubling in size! So I guess that means more shoppers in the future, unfortunately.
Anyway, I know that the fashion police may not approve, but I bought some cheap and cheerful tops for the girls. The Hula top was only $5.51 at Target, the other two were $7 at Best n Less. I love those prices! So although I haven't bought any clothes for the girls since I started sewing, I couldn't resist.
I'm still working on a blouse - a few dramas with buttonholes and collars. It's to be expected for my first time, I guess. I better get back to it.

Bottom middle: Two summery cottons that I'll probably do something with eventually, but I'm a bit 'over them' for some reason.

One of the EB girls, Marie suggested using french seams on the gather. It hadn't occured to me, so I did this on a second skirt, this time a plain white one.
I'm having some problems transferring the pictures from the camera (a common thing with our new camera. Grrr..Okay so it's nothing fancy, but I'd still like to be able to do something with the photos once I've taken them) . So that can be for another post.
Here's some more shots of the girls instead:
