Simplicity 2931: Quick Summer Tops

If it ever gets warm in Seattle, I am going to need some cute summer tops. So, I reached into the stash and pulled out some cottons I've had for a couple of years and this pattern:

I made this once in November during Faye's Month of Tops, and wasn't sure how I liked it. I've been wearing it recently and have gotten some compliments, so I said what the heck. I fixed a small fitting issue and cut out both shirts on Sunday night. (While watching The Hard Way. I looooooove Ida Lupino.) On Monday I set up my production shop and cranked them out. (Sewing movies: Angus and Alien.) Not the most enjoyable of sewing endeavors, but I needed some shirts, therefore the shirts must be sewn. My husband took some shots in the yard, after it RAINED.

Squinty me.

Husband is goofing off.

Cute tops! Now this may sound weird but I think the goemetric neckline goes very well with your geometric hairstyle. Nice!
